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.

Making Life Easier With Quick Laser Treatments
Our doctors at Atlanta West Dentistry provide patient-friendly laser treatments to remove your cold sores, including a gentle 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 cold sore won’t spread.
We can also remove fever blisters from your lips. This simple procedure takes only three or four minutes and requires little or no anesthetic.
