Comforting Cold sores, Canker sores, and other oral lesions with Laser

Cold sore lesions in the mouth or on the lips are annoying and painful. Usually, the patient feels some discomfort and soreness before the vesicles appear. After that, a cluster of vesicles will form. These lesions are uncomfortable and annoying, lasting about two weeks. Laser treatment can help relieve the pain, shorten the lesion’s duration, and limit the lesions’ size. Just remember, cold sore treatment with a laser must be done as soon as you feel discomfort and redness and before the vesicles appear.

Laser treatment is also helpful for canker sores. Canker sores, or Aphthous ulcers, are usually painful and take about two weeks to heal. In major Aphthous, the lesions are multiple and large. Again, lasers can decrease the pain and speed up the healing process.

Lasers can also provide comfort for other painful soft tissue lesions, such as oral lesions of pemphigus vulgaris.

The treatment with a laser is easy and fast, without any pain. Local anesthetic is not needed, and the results are good. The dentist will use the laser on the area of concern for a few seconds. Patients may feel slight warmth or nothing at all. The laser promotes healing, so the patient does not need to wait 14 days for recovery.

If you’re suffering from painful oral lesions, don’t wait any longer. Contact Fort York Dentist at (647) 346-8888 today to schedule your laser treatment and experience quick, effective relief.
