At Dental West NYC, we take a holistic approach to oral wellness, caring for the health of our patients’ entire mouths and surrounding anatomy. That’s why we carefully examine your jaw, head, and neck during your exams. It’s why we treat TMJ and migraines. And, that’s why we want you to think of us when you get a canker or cold sore too. Many sufferers of mouth sores are under the impression that there’s no treatment once an outbreak begins, that they just have to wait it out. But Dental West offers effective cold sore and canker sore treatment in NYC.

How We Get Rid of Cold Sores and Canker Sores Fast

Our PerioLase laser dentistry device features a photobiomodulation (PBM) setting designed to target ulcers like canker and cold sores specifically. Briefly, PBM is a type of laser light therapy that disrupts the oxidative stress process and restores a healthy cellular process, which promotes rapid healing. This light-based treatment for cold sores and canker sores has been shown in clinical research studies to accelerate healing of the current outbreak and reduce the duration of recurrences.
