Can you treat cold sores and canker sores?
Canker sores, also known as aphthous ulcers, are small sores that occur inside the mouth. You can get them on the tongue and on the inside of the cheeks and lips - the parts of the mouth that can move. They usually pop up alone, but sometimes they show up in small clusters.
Cold sores are most frequently located on the lips at the place where the lips meet the skin and the mucosa. This is known as the vermillion border. These herpes outbreaks can also be found occasionally on the cheek, chin and nose. In individuals who have their immune system suppressed by medications or infections, the herpes outbreaks can also appear in the mouth and can sometimes be seen as chronic superficial ulcers. They can pass from person to person.
Our new laser technology can help remove cold sores without anesthesia. Our treatment will cut healing time and can actually prevent cold sores from recurring in the treated spot. Our lasers can even be used to shape gum tissue, take better impressions and more. CLICK HERE to learn more about our laser technology.
"I had been suffering with debilitating discomfort from canker sores for the last several years. At times I was even unable to eat, drink or speak without excruciating pain. When I heard an ad on the radio for laser treatment of canker sores at Images Dental Centre, I called and booked the appointment immediately. The staff were incredibly helpful and informative and took the time to explain the procedure in detail to me and to describe the results I could expect to achieve. They were also very accommodating in helping me select a date and time that worked best for me to come down. Dr. Zdan Shulakewych, having an excellent bedside manner, is very caring and professional. He patiently walked me through the process before we began, and even touched base with me a few days later to ensure that I was doing well. I have undergone three treatments, so far and I am presently canker sore free. I am optimistic that the pain and discomfort is behind me! Thank you to everyone at Images Dental Centre for your kindness and professionalism. You have changed my life. I will be happy to recommend your facility to everyone and anyone; especially those suffering from the pain of canker sores."
