WaterLasedental laser gives patients with cold sores and canker sores a painless option for removal of these uncomfortable and unsightly ulcers.  The dental laser allows for precise removal of only the ulcerative area.  This allows for immediate pain relief and healing is virtually painless and worry free. Although the virus will not be eliminated patients will not have a recurring ulcer in the treated area.  Patients can come in for treatment when they start feeling the tingle at the onset of a cold sore and we can remove it before it ever completely forms. If the sore has already formed, the laser treatment will reduce healing time in half.
