Treating Ulcers in Eden Prairie, MN
We use lasers to treat and heal
A mouth ulcer, also known as a canker sore, is a small, painful lesion that can develop on the soft tissues inside your mouth. These sores are typically round or oval in shape and are often white or yellowish with a red border.
Mouth ulcers can cause discomfort, making it painful to eat, drink, or speak. They can be triggered by various factors, including physical trauma, stress, certain foods, hormonal changes, or underlying medical conditions, and usually heal on their own within a week or two.
It provides a minimally invasive and virtually painless treatment option, reducing discomfort during the procedure. The precision of the WaterLase technology allows for targeted treatment of the ulcer, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. The laser can promote faster healing and reduce the risk of infection.
Most cases only require a topical anesthetic applied to the area for 2-3 minutes. Talk with your dentist regarding a custom plan to keep you comfortable for this procedure.
