At Advanced Aesthetics Dentistry, we treat cold sores quickly and painlessly.

Cold sores are blisters caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus. This virus hides under the skin waiting to come out at the most inopportune time. The causes of a cold sore might be stress or sickness. They might even suddenly emerge for dietary reasons. Cold sores usually appear as a group of small blisters around the mouth and lips and are often uncomfortable and unsightly.

If you think a cold sore is starting to form, you’ll usually notice a telltale sign such as a tingling sensation in that area. At the first sign of discomfort, you should contact our office and schedule a cold sore laser treatment.

We light the way to a better smile!

What is CO2 laser cold sore therapy?

Our cold sore therapy is done painlessly and quickly with one of our CO2 lasers. When caught early enough, within the first 24 hours of feeling a telltale sensation, we can utilize the CO2 laser treatment to provide relief.

You will notice it’s effectiveness right away as the laser dries up the cold sore in about 5-7 minutes. A second treatment is sometimes needed but usually the cold sore will continue to dry up and disappear in about 3 days. Furthermore you shouldn’t have it reappear in that area ever again. Of all the ways to treat cold sores, using a CO2 laser is the most effective.

The treatment is quick, the relief is immediate, and you will leave our office happy to return to your normal daily routine!
