Canker sore: Dental lasers can safely and effectively heal a canker sore-- usually immediately. Go see a dentist who is familiar with this type of procedure.

Canker sore: Nothing cures canker sores or prevents recurrence. However, many over the counter antiseptic and pain-relief medications can ameliorate pain, prevent infection and promote healing.
