Laser Cold Sore Treatment in AZ
Cold sores are unsightly lesions that are fluid-filled and form around the lip and gum areas. Cold sores are caused by a virus and are often active upon onset of stress, trauma, change of weather, or sun exposure in some people. Cold sores begin to show signs of start by a tingling sensation in the area that they are about to arise, and they can last from a few days to weeks until gone. For many, these lesions can cause unsightly embarrassment; however, Dr. Mazaheri offers laser cold sore treatment in Gilbert, AZ that can help reduce the pain and appearance of such lesions.
Canker sores are small ulcerated lesions that arise inside of the mouth that causes an uncomfortable, burning sensation. Canker sores usually occur upon onset of stress, certain types of foods, or trauma. These lesions are commonly formed around gums or the tongue and take anywhere from 3-7 days to heal. Dental lasers can significantly help reduce the burning sensation or even reduce the healing time of canker sores.

Although most of the cold and canker sores heal on their own, at our dentist office, we can treat cold sores with our specially calibrated laser to reduce the healing time and decrease the pain or the burning sensation associated with the lesions.
Dr. Michael Mazaheri is a laser dentist that treats cold sore lesions with a specially calibrated laser. Lasers help kill the herpes virus that is associated with cold sores.
