Generally, traumatic ulcers are quite common. They are caused by mechanical damage (contact with sharp foodstuff; accidental biting during mastication, talking, or even sleeping) and thermal, electrical, or chemical burns.
Non-healing ulcers occur in people with diabetes, particularly if their blood sugar levels are too high or there is a history of smoking. Skin cancer is also a cause of non-healing ulcers, and early medical attention is particularly important in that case.
Laser therapy may be used to treat mouth ulcers, also known as oral mucositis, which are painful sores that can develop in the mouth as a side effect of certain medical treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Laser therapy is a minimally invasive treatment option that uses focused light energy to remove damaged tissue and promote healing.
There are several ways that laser therapy may be used to treat mouth ulcers, including:
Debridement: Laser energy can be used to remove dead or damaged tissue from the ulcer, which can help to reduce pain and promote healing.
Sterilisation: Laser energy can also be used to kill bacteria and other microorganisms that may be present in the ulcer, which can help to reduce the risk of infection.
Pain management: Some studies have suggested that laser therapy may help to reduce pain associated with mouth ulcers.
Healing promotion: Laser therapy may also stimulate the production of collagen and other substances that are important for healing, which can help to promote the repair of damaged tissue.
Doctors at Arya Dental Hospital use advanced laser therapy to treat mouth ulcers and remove the damaged tissue.
