CANKER SORES: QUICKER RELIEF

Tagged:  

BREAKTHROUGH YOU CAN USE

A new medicated oral disc could be the first OTC product proven to speed healing of canker sores, the common mouth ulcers caused by stress, allergies', braces, or dentures. Canker sores are typically treated with messy, bad-tasting topical gels--many of which ease pain but don't always shorten a lesion's duration. A clinical study found that all-natural CankerMelts discs, which contain licorice root extract and collagen, heal the sores significantly faster than a placebo--with 90% healing in 1 week, compared with 68%. The tiny adhesive discs dissolve in 2 to 6 hours; replace the disc until the sore is gone. Available at orahealth.com or at pharmacies ($16 for 24 discs).
