In brief: Diode laser.
A diode laser can easily cauterize the nerve endings and accelerate healing.

Yes, the laser is a great way to remove these lesions, plus it gives the dentist a chance to take a look at it in person. Sometimes ulcers on the side of the tongue can really be oral cancer.

In brief: Laser treatment
If your dentist has access to a laser like the biolase md laser the lesions can be treated to eliminate pain and decrease the healing time.
