Injured Gums

Relief for Injured Gums

Gum injuries can be very small or very large, but they’re all highly uncomfortable. The Dental Specialists are capable of helping our patients alleviate their discomfort and improving the healing process for quicker relief. From soft tissue laser treatments for cold sores to in-office sutures for lacerations, we put your smile and comfort first.


Quick Pain Relief


We offer pain relief and soft tissue therapy for gum injuries related to:

  • Cold sores / aphthous ulcers
  • Viral outbreaks
  • Gum lacerations
  • Trauma
  • Bleeding gums
  • Swelling or abscesses of the gums

For treatment it may be necessary to recommend a home pain relief regimen or prescription medication for the comfort of the patient. In most cases of minor gum injuries, discomfort will be reduced within 24-48 hours. The majority of sores or injuries of the gums will heal within 2 weeks. If healing does not occur within this timeframe, it is important to see The Dental Specialists for an exam and assessment of the area.
