Cold sores can be a real pain, both physically and emotionally. They have a way of showing up at the most inconvenient times, causing discomfort and making us self-conscious about our appearance. But fear not, because dental lasers can treat these pesky sores. In today’s blog, your Sheridan, WY, dentist discusses how they may be able to help you!

Early Intervention

Most of us have experienced that tingling sensation that forecasts the arrival of a cold sore. This is the perfect time to call us for some laser therapy. By seeking early treatment, we can use the laser’s energy to target and disrupt viral particles, helping to reduce the severity and length of the outbreak. Getting in early means you can take control and minimize the embarrassment that comes with a fully developed cold sore.

Soothing the Pain

Cold sores can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort, making even the simplest activities like talking and eating a struggle. Dental lasers come to your rescue by delivering energy to the affected nerves, lessening pain signals, and providing much-needed relief.

Get Back to Your Best Self

One of the most frustrating aspects of cold sores is the long healing time. However, lasers can be a game-changer in speeding up this process. By stimulating cellular activity and promoting increased blood flow to the area, they can energize your body’s natural healing responses. This means you can bid farewell to that embarrassing cold sore sooner and regain your confident smile.

Reducing Recurrence

While there is no cure for the virus that causes cold sores, this therapy can help take control of their frequency. By regularly employing dental lasers to target the virus and stimulate faster healing, you can manage and potentially reduce the number of outbreaks you experience. We are always just a phone call away.
