– Infections from bacteria, viruses or fungus

– Irritation from a loose orthodontic wire, a denture that doesn’t fit, or a sharp edge from a broken tooth or filling.

– The symptom of a disease or disorder.

Your dentist should examine any mouth sore that lasts a week or longer. Main types of sores are canker sores, cold sores, oral thrush and leukoplakia.
