Cold Sore Treatment

Cold Sore Treatment with Diode Laser


At Hoye Dental we can help relieve the embarassment, pain and discomfort a person can get from cold sores (herpetic lesion). Dr. Hoye uses her diode laser to painlessly get rid of cold sores. With this diode laser we are able to treat your cold sore – herpetic lesion before you have an outbreak or when the first symptoms appear. The treatment is fast, and requires no anesthetic. In fact, the pain from the cold sore or herpetic lesion will be reduced or eliminated immediately after the laser treatment.

If you call our office when you feel the tingling sensation associated with cold sores (herpetic lesions) we can now treat the area with the diode laser.

If the lesion is treated at the ‘tingling’ stage – before an actual breakout – you may not experience a breakout at all, or you may experience less of a breakout than you usually experience. If you are already experiencing a breakout we can still treat the affected area and you will experience immediate pain relief and the soft tissue laser- diode laser will promote collagen formation and start the healing process so the outbreak heals faster.

Since our diode laser kills the viral particles of a cold sore, it will often decrease the frequency of recurrent cold sores or herpetic lesions in the treated area. It may take several treatments, but if we can treat the area each time symptoms start with our diode laser you should experience less breakouts, smaller breakouts, or you may not have a breakout in this area again. We have had great results with our patients and non patients who come to our office after hearing about this procedure. Most have found great relief with the treatments with the diode laser.

If you or someone you know could benefit from this treatment with the diode laser please give our office a call.

If you would like treatment or would just like more information about our office do not hesitate to call. We welcome all new patients and would be pleased help you with your oral care in our office. Our phone number is 508.823.1600 (Taunton) or 781.444.4647 (Needham). The fee is around $75.00 for this diode laser treatment. Very reasonable for treatment with a diode laser.
