Úlceras bucales

Las úlceras bucales son una forma común de aftas orales, que aparecen como úlceras blancas o amarillas dolorosas rodeadas por un área roja brillante. Las úlceras bucales pueden ser provocadas por estrés emocional, deficiencias en la dieta, los períodos menstruales, cambios hormonales, alergias a los alimentos o trauma en la boca y usualmente sanan en dos semanas sin necesidad de tratamiento.
