Canker Cover is a small pill-like patch which sticks to the ulcer within seconds and lasts 6 – 8 hours. The patch seals and isolates the mouth ulcer from contact with the tongue, teeth, food and toxins that may accumulate in the mouth. It also has breath freshening properties. Canker Cover instantly soothes the pain and releases natural food grade ingredients which reduce inflammation and speed healing. Most canker sores are healed with just one patch.
In a clinical study involving 248 participants, Canker Cover reduced the average duration of canker sores from 9.5 days to just 1.5 days. In the same study, 60% of canker sores were completely healed within a day. Although "menthol" is the FDA approved "active ingredient", mineral salt and citrus oil (listed under "inactive ingredients") help speed healing, according to the scientists who conducted the Canker Cover study.

I have used this product a handful of times over the years with moderate success. Several times, the sore healed after using 1-2 discs. Several times, the inside of the sore was gone, but the area was still a bit sensitive. The last time I used it, I had an allergic reaction and lots of little bumps developed underneath the disc. If this is the only thing you can find to use, use it. But, I would suggest using something else.

My daughter had two canker sores in her mouth. Put one on each. I expected them to disolve. Instead she had a mouth with two tablet size "covers" that fell off within 10 minutes. I paid $12.99 for a box of six at our local pharmacy. Very disappointed.

Adults & children 5 years of age and older: Place the Canker Cover patch on a clean, dry finger with the white side up, then place and hold the white side on the sore for 20 seconds. Within 30 minutes the patch becomes gel-like. It absorbs fluids from the sore as part of the healing process and expands slightly. The patch will stick to the affected area and cover the sore for 6 - 8 hours and then dissolve. Do not remove patch before it dissolves.
Apply additional patches as needed. Canker Cover also contains natural, breath-freshening ingredients.
