The fastest and the easiest way to heal an ulcer is through the Diode Laser which we have been using since almost 15 years.  The Laser zaps the bacteria in the ulcer and promotes rapid healing. And otherwise u can take multivitamins,  lots of juices,  and apply antiseptic ointments like hexigel or dologel CT.  Mucopain would relieve pain.  But Laser works the fastest.  Trust me.  Feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre. God bless u.

Your description of the problem most likely points towards an ulcer..... because any ulcer normally takes 5 to 7 days for healing, you should wait till that time..... and for symptomatic relief you can apply any anaesthetic gel like dologel CT to get rid of the discomfort.... Regards......

Hello, Its an ulcer. It can be due a lot of reasons like harsh brushing which could cause the injury. Or faulty sleeping or eating habits. You can apply an ointment like mucopain before food three times a day and wait and watch. If it does not resolve then you can visit a dentist or a general physician. Also improve your lifestyle and eating habits. Hope this helps you. Regards, Benchmark Dental Clinic
