No Pain with Laser Therapy for Cold Sores

Sometimes referred to as fever blisters, cold sores are caused by the simplex herpes virus. The virus enters your body via a break in the skin around or inside of your mouth.  Laser therapy for cold sores from your dentist in Toronto is an excellent way to stop the virus before it fully breaks out. 

Cold sores can be spread through kissing and touching saliva. Parents often spread the virus to their children this way.

Cold Sore Symptoms

laser_therapy_YorkvilleSturm & Associates agrees that cold sores are a nuisance and can be downright painful. People who suffer from the virus often complain of pain, itching or tingling before a cold sore comes on. Other signs may include swollen glands, a sore throat, and/or a fever.

Once the blisters show up they open, emit a clear fluid eventually crusting over. Cold sores can last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks.

Conventional Cold Sore Treatments

Cold sore treatments include ointments, creams, and sometimes pills. People also take over the counter cold remedies as well. Keep in mind that this type of treatment will not make the cold sores go away sooner, but they will lessen some of the pain.

21st Century Laser Therapy Treatment

The best way to get rid of the cold sore eruption is with laser therapy. Because laser therapy for cold sores catches lesions in time you will avoid a full on breakout. As soon as you feel any type of symptom, call and make an appointment with your Yorkville dentist.

Sturm & Associates uses laser therapy for cold sores, which take away the pain and discomfort while drying them up and healing faster. While there is no cure for cold sores, laser therapy in Toronto can actually reduce how many you get, while lessening the severity of the cold sores.

Most cold sores pop up in the same place. With multiple laser therapy treatments for the virus, there is a very good chance that the sores will not reoccur in the same area every time.
