Do you suffer from ulcers or lesions that form inside or outside the mouth? Canker sores and cold sores have, for a long time, been challenging to treat. Fortunately, at the dental clinic of Regina Y Powe, DDS, we can effectively treat these sores using Solea laser. This painless soft tissue laser is versatile in treating dental conditions or aiding with dental procedures.
Cold sores, unlike canker sores, appear outside the mouth. You will find them under the nose or the chin and around the lips. Cold sores may also be called fever blisters and appear like small blister clusters that burst and form a crust. Conversely, canker sores appear as grey or white lesions and don’t blister like cold sores.
Canker sores are different from cold sores. The latter arises from the herpes simplex virus. They are highly contagious and often mistaken for canker sores.
Canker sores are also referred to as mouth ulcers. They are painful open sores forming inside the mouth. You will find them under the tongue, at the base of the gum line, and inside the cheek, lips, and throat.
Although canker sores can be painful, they are not contagious. It’s unknown exactly what causes canker sores; however, bacteria, viruses, and immune system problems may be involved. Our dental clinic uses Solea laser technology to provide cold & canker sore treatment in Frisco, TX.
You want to seek prompt treatment when you develop cold and canker sores. Visiting our dental office will get the sores taken care of. Laser dentistry has been effective at treating these annoying and painful sores. Solea laser provides quick and lasting relief of your cold sores or canker sores.

It is a painless procedure; you feel the warmth as the laser instrument works on the skin. No anesthetic may be needed, and the treatment can take only 2 minutes.
The laser destroys any viral or bacterial infections present. It also seals the nerve endings, helping eliminate any pain that could arise from the sores and speeding up the healing. Moreover, Solea laser treatment greatly minimizes the odds of scarring. Within 24 to 72 hours, you can heal your canker and cold sores.
