Laser Treatment for Mouth Ulcers & Mouth Sores

Mouth Ulcer

Recurrent Aphthous ulcers affect around 10% of the population. Mouth ulcers can be caused by various factors, such as iron deficiency, trauma to soft tissues and even stress or secondary to HIV or Crohn’s disease. They can be very painful and cause discomfort when eating and drinking. If you are a regular sufferer of ulcers, we can help you!

Our mouth ulcer laser treatment works as the laser dries out the ulcer and ablates nerve endings, promoting speedier healing. Laser treatment for mouth ulcers is a much more effective way of treating persistent ulcers than creams such as Bonjela and saltwater rinses.

It also disinfects the ulcer, which reduces the risk of secondary infection. This is something that you will not get from any other treatment. During our low-intensity laser treatment for mouth ulcers, it is normal to feel a warm sensation as it works to eliminate the ulcer and prevent further infection. While not a cure, it immediately reduces the pain involved with ulcers and improves the speed of healing after the mouth sore treatment.

Low-Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) application can help reduce pain and provide quicker healing compared to corticosteroid treatment. A study by De Souza et al revealed that 75% of the patients who had an oral ulcer treatment reported a reduction in pain in the same session after laser treatment, and total regression of the lesion occurred after four days. This is part of what makes this surgery the best treatment for mouth ulcers compared to creams and rinses. Compared to these other treatments, the total regression in the corticoid group was from 5 to 7 days which is much slower than our laser mouth sore treatment.

The Benefits of Using Laser Ulcer Treatment

Studies into low-intensity laser therapy and other laser ulcer treatments have also been found to treat oral herpes ulcers from the herpes simplex virus. These studies have confirmed the benefit of Low-Level Laser Therapy in decreasing pain and improving wound healing compared to other treatment modalities like acyclovir. There is also some evidence of delayed reoccurrence of the lesions after being treated with low-intensity laser therapy and other mouth sore treatments that are available.

Our low-intensity laser therapy and other laser ulcer treatments have also helped treat Chemotherapy-Induced Mucositis and Erosive Lichen Planus lesions.
