Canker sores still have uncertain causes, though there are several theories about contributing factors. Sometimes trauma may play a role. When people wear braces or a sudden force strikes the mouth, the trauma causes an opening in the tissue, which allows the tissue to ulcerate and cause a canker sore. The foods that we eat, particularly acidic food, may also contribute. Other reasons for canker sores include undue stress, certain medications, and infection from viruses or bacteria.
