Cold sores and canker sores appear in the area of the mouth, usually as a result of contact with other people who have the issue or infected eating utensils.
These sores usually heal on their own, after a few days to approximately 2 weeks. Yet if the sore causes pain or discomfort, whether physical or social, the best solution is to see your dentist for laser treatment.
Laser treatment works much faster than the other options of creams or ointments, because it targets the virus and destroy it through photo-biostimulation before it can cause further damage.
If you would like to treat an existing sore or feel the symptoms of one starting – which can range from discomfort in the mouth area to a fever – visit our dental center.
