Canker Sores and Cold Sores
Find instant relief from pesky canker sores and cold sores with our effective treatments that will soothe discomfort and promote speedy healing.
Canker sores are small, shallow lesions that develop inside the mouth and lips, making eating, speaking, and cleaning teeth uncomfortable. Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus and can be uncomfortable.
We believe a beautiful smile begins with the right communication and a commitment to dental health. Each visit to our office starts with a conversation about you: your health and your dental needs and goals.
A dental laser targets energy onto the affected area, delivering precise and controlled therapy without the need for anesthesia. It seals nerve endings, reduces inflammation, and promotes tissue regeneration. In less than one minute, patients experience immediate relief, with complete dissipation of discomfort in the next 24-48 hours. Laser therapy can be performed at the first sign of an outbreak or at a cold sore’s blister stage to help reduce pain, speed up healing, and minimize the risk of scarring. We will also guide you on appropriate oral hygiene practices and lifestyle adjustments to reduce the frequency and severity of canker sore outbreaks.
