Mouth ulcers make it painful to eat and talk.
Minor mouth ulcers may be caused by irritation from braces, a sharp or broken tooth or poorly fitting dentures, accidentally biting the inside of your cheek, tongue, or lip, brushing teeth incorrectly, burning your mouth from hot food or drink or chewing tobacco. Sometimes, an iron deficiency or certain medication can also cause mouth ulcers. Apparently, mouth ulcers aren't contagious, so it's not spread through kissing or sharing utensils.
