The exact cause of aphthous ulcers is unknown. Factors that provoke them include stress, fatigue, illness, injury from accidental biting, hormonal changes, menstruation, sudden weight loss, food allergies, the foaming agent in toothpaste (SLS), and deficiencies in vitamin B12, iron, and folic acid. Some drugs, such as nicorandil, also have been linked with mouth ulcers. In some cases they are thought to be caused by an overreaction by the body's own immune system.
- Toothbrush abrasions
- Laceration with sharp foods or objects
- Accidental biting (particularly common with sharp canine teeth)
- Dental braces
Common medications, that can result in recurrent aphthous stomatitis, include:
- HLA-B5, B12, B44, B51, B52
- HLA-DR2 and HLA-DR7
- HLA-DQ series
Aphthous ulcers are commonly seen in nutritional deficiencies. Low serum levels of following elements may result in recurrent aphthous ulcer:
- Environmental allergens
- Food allergens
