The recurrent aphthous ulcer is a common oral ulcerative condition. Therapies are pharmaceutical in nature, remain palliative and do not alleviate pain. Carbon dioxide laser therapy was used to treat a minor form of the ulcer (canker sore); the laser therapy reduced or eliminated the pain and inflammation with normal wound healing.
