Laser treatments are available for the removal of fever blisters, cold sores, or bumps in the mouth. Your dental team at Arkansas Family Dental can provide a minimally invasive, patient friendly, painless procedure to remove unwanted bumps and blisters in the mouth. Cold sores and fever blisters can present themselves for a variety of reasons, and usually take a couple weeks to heal. During this time, cold sores are highly contagious.
While home treatments can provide relief from pain and redness, there is no home remedy to get rid of a cold sore fast. The dental professionals at Arkansas Family Dental can administer a fast acting laser treatment to get rid of unwanted sores at any stage.
How does it work?
The procedure is performed by using a soft tissue dental laser to heat the lesion, and eliminate any viruses inside. The most you will feel is a little warmth, regardless of the sore being internal like a canker sore or external like a cold sore. Once the sore is removed with the laser, the healing process is accelerated. The laser treatment also numbs the nerves near the cold sore, providing you instant relief from any pain or discomfort. Early treatment can even prevent sores from progressing. The treatment only takes about 15 minutes, and the cold sore is usually dried up within 24 hours.
