Apthous ulcers, commonly referred as canker sores, are the most common ulcerative lesions of the mouth.
They are usually painful with burning, itching and stinging sensation and are associated with redness. The lesions worsen by physical contact especially with certain foods and drinks. If there are lesions with the tongue, speaking, chewing can be uncomfortable.
With the use of diode laser, the nerve endings will be numb and kill the bacteria or viral component. The laser therapy will reduce and eliminate the pain and inflammation with normal wound healing.
