In general, because the normal flow of saliva helps protect the lining of the mouth, any condition that decreases saliva production makes mouth sores more likely. Furthermore, having a bad oral hygiene is one of the cause of having an oral infection:

The most common specific causes of mouth sores are:

  • Recurre aphthous stomatitis (canker sores)

  • Viral infections (particularly herpes simplex and herpes zoster)

  • Other infections (caused by fungi or bacteria)

  • Injury or irritating food or chemicals

  • Tobacco use

  • Drugs (particularly chemotherapy drugs) and radiation therapy

  • Systemic disorders

 Oral thrush occurs when a yeast infection develops on the inside of your mouthand on your tongue. This condition is also known as oropharyngeal candidiasis. The Candida albicans fungus causes oral thrush. A small amount of this fungus normally lives in your mouth without causing harm.
