Do you have fever blisters or canker sores?
Cold sores, fever blisters, and canker sores can all be annoying and painful, and it seems like they take forever to disappear. Summer is prime time for fever blisters to appear. If you are suffering from these bothersome lesions, we are excited to introduce you to a treatment solution we offer at Sonshine Family Dental! Dr. Driggers can use a Soft Tissue Dental Laser to provide immediate relief to your sores and help them to disappear in as little as 2 to 3 days! The Soft Tissue Dental Laser can also prevent the recurrence of fever blisters. These sores are a symptom of the herpes simplex virus which cannot be cured. Lasers can help destroy the virus, and can greatly reduce how often they recur.
Is the Laser Safe?
Dental lasers are approved by the FDA for oral surgery procedures and are considered very safe. The laser is a precise and painless procedure that is much safer and more comfortable than many of the traditional tools.
How Do Lasers Work?
The laser can be set to a very specific wavelength of light that can affect one tissue without affecting other tissues, destroying the virus while maintaining the healthy tissue. If you have any questions about how the Soft Tissue Dental Laser works or think this exciting technology could be the solution to your cold and canker sores, please contact our office to set up an appointment.
