Our dentists and dental team at Durham Dentistry are pleased to provide treatment for mouth sores, including canker sores, cold sores (herpetic lesions), and other oral lesions. Dr. Macon Sapp and Dr. Baxter Sapp utilize the WaterLase® dental laser to treat mouth sores. Canker sores, cold sores, and other lesions can make talking and eating painful and difficult. With the WaterLase dental laser, we can often relieve pain immediately. WaterLase treatment also greatly speeds up the healing process, and the treatment itself is virtually painless. After WaterLase laser treatment, your cold sore or canker sore will often be less visible and noticeable. We welcome you to call or visit our dental office in Durham, North Carolina to learn more about how we use WaterLase laser dentistry to treat mouth sores.
