Thanks for posting your query
There are all chances you have developed oral ulcers
These could be due to constipation, lack of Viamin B Complex especially Folic Acid, Injury from dental braces etc

The common remedy is treat the cause
In any case a good Folic acid pill for 3-4 weeks should be ok

Hope this helps
