Thanks for query,
As this problem is for about a year should be evaluated,
It seems that due to teeth bite she might have ulcers.
Consult dentist or oral surgeon and get examined properly.
Give B.complex,folic acid syrup.
Ok and bye.

First of all check the bristles of your daughter's toothbrush, change the toothbrush as soon as the bristles start to spread apart. Secondly, increase her intake of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables, you can try mixing in cheese or fresh to make your dishes more appealing. You can give her B-complex syrup for a couple of months. Borax 200 pills can be given as 2 pills twice a day for 5 days.

This is because of improper digestion. So please give very light food which are easily digestible to her. Avoid all diary products and chocolates. Give the following Ayurveda medicines for 45 days.
Pippalyasavam + Abhyarishtam 10ml thrice daily before food.
Rajanyadi Churna 1 teaspoon with honey twice daily after food.
Ojus Syrup 1 teaspoon thrice daily after food.
Stomatab Capsule- Open the capsule and apply the powder to the canker sores.
