Using Laser Dentistry to Treat Cold Sores

Cold sores are painful and annoying. In the past, they have also been difficult to treat, but now your dentist has an option for getting rid of sores for good: Laser dentistry. Laser dentistry using the Waterlase system can provide instant relief from cold sore pain in the comfort of your dentist’s office.

Using laser technology, your dentist can reduce inflammation and infection in your cold sore, allowing it to heal quickly. Pain relief is immediate, and most cold sores treated with laser dentistry clear up within 48 hours of treatment. During laser treatment, all you will experience is a warming sensation caused by the laser. Because the pain of the cold sore will dissipate on contact, getting laser treatments for cold sores is virtually painless.

At Glenwood Premier Dental, our laser dentistry treatments can make all of the dental care you need more comfortable. To find out if you’re a candidate for laser dentistry in Hazlet , call us at (732) 264-4477.
