Doctor James Ross on Canker Sore Treatment Read Transcript
Many people get the canker sores. Sometimes it's something where they bite their lip or tongue. They're very, very common, very painful too, and a lot of times you have one and it swells up a little bit and then you'll bite it again and you'll get another.
The laser is great for this type of treatment. We actually apply some topical anesthetic, just some gel on that and then we go over with the laser and it actually kills the virus. Painless and very, very comfortable, and rather than waiting for it to go away on its own two or three weeks and sometimes they can go longer, if you continue to bite on that, it just takes care of it quickly and is a great procedure for someone that get those.
Again, you will not see that canker sore coming back in that area again, which is a great advantage. It sterilizes that area and eliminates the pain and discomfort.

Enjoy a Mouth That Doesn’t Hurt Anymore
Mouth ulcers can be quite painful, especially if you get more than one at a time. They can make it difficult to eat the foods you normally enjoy and can cause pain when talking. Severe ulcers can even make it hard to relax because your mouth is in such intense pain.
The good news in all this is that there is now a quick way to treat aphthous ulcers and cold sores. Using gentle laser therapy, Dr. Ross can eliminate these lesions and help you feel like yourself again. Here’s how the process will work:
- The laser uses a focused beam of light to treat the canker sore – we don’t even have to touch the laser device to the ulcer.
- In a matter of seconds, the laser will do its work, and you will feel better immediately.
- In most cases, the sore will be gone within 24 hours.
How’s that for fast, effective treatment when you need it most? As with most treatments, the sooner you can treat the ulcer, the quicker and better your results will be. So, don’t delay getting help. Laser canker sore treatment may lengthen the time in between breakouts, and once an area is treated, you may not develop another canker sore in that spot.
