Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
The most causes for the mouth sores are :
1) Trauma
2) Vitamin deficiency
3) Stress
Pansaoral contains chamomile (soothing), marsh mallow (softening) and saffron (purifying) agent and is a good mild drug for reducing your pain, but then you have to find out and cure the reason behind these frequent sores.
As trauma has been ruled out by your dentist, we will not consider that.
Coming to the rest of the things, you should take a month long course of Vit b supplements. They are available as capsules. Secondly take chew able Vit C tablets. They will help in the healing and reduce the oxidative stress.
Do make a change in your lifestyle. Try going to sleep on regular hours. Take good fresh diet. proper and regular exercise will also help you.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
