There are a number of possibilities, including sensitivity to a toothpaste or mouthwash, nutrient deficiency, a condition causing dry mouth, and numerous others. A detailed description is helpful, but it may require visits to your dentist and doctor to narrow it down. Let me know and I will help as much as I can.

1) If the cankers began after you started the new Rx toothpaste, you may be sensitive to the toothpaste. Check to see if it contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, that has been a concern for some people. Also, some people are sensitive to the ingredients for teeth whitening and/or tartar control.
2) It could be virus-related; if so, lysine supplements should help as it blocks the ability of viruses to replicate.
3) It could be a nutritional deficiency. Consider whether your diet is replete in folate, B12 and iron, and if not, a supplement may be in order.
4) Dry mouth could also be the cause, you might consider a product such as Biotene to help keep the mouth moist.
Let me know if any of these seem likely.
