Any surgery that we do is going to involve the laser in some way, because it just tends to be the most atraumatic way of carrying out surgery. In addition to surgery there are all sorts of other modalities, treating gum disease and removal of odd pathologies in the mouth, removing cold sores. Probably the three most common pathologies that we see are cold sores, fever blisters; hemangiomas which are basically purple reddish lesions that occur on the lips and can be unattractive; and there's another one called a fibroma which is almost like a little nodule that can occur on the cheeks or the lip and it patients are constantly biting those and it becomes aggravating.
Years ago we would have to do incisions and sutures and things like that to treat those types of problems, but now it's basically typically a three- to four-minute procedure with no bleeding and very, very, very rarely do patients say they have ever felt pain afterwards. That's a pretty cool thing to offer, is a very atraumatic way of treating these types of lesions, annoying lesions a lot of times, especially when it comes to cold sores, and do it in a way that patients aren't having problems afterwards.
Our laser cold sore treatment will:
- Remove the cold sore for good
- Reduce the healing process by less than half (cold sores typically take seven to 10 days to heal)
- Require a minimal amount of aesthetic, if any at all
- Ensure the sore never returns to the same location
- Take only a few minutes so you can go about your day

Making Life Easier With Quick Cold Sore Treatments
Our doctors at Atlanta West Dentistry in Marietta, GA provide patient-friendly laser treatments to remove your cold sores, including a carbon dioxide laser. This technology allows us to perform many procedures that have traditionally been considered “surgical” where scalpels were once used. It works by using light energy and seals blood vessels, lymphatics, and nerve endings so the sore won’t spread.
We can also remove fever blisters from your lips. This is a very easy procedure that only takes three or four minutes and requires little or sometimes no anesthetic.
