Many people needlessly suffer from canker sores or apthous ulcers. Gentle laser energy is used in our office to quickly heal these painful and sometimes debilitating mouth ulcers. Not only is the pain reduced immediately, but the ulcers heal in about 1 day as opposed to the usual 10-day healing period.
