Aptos Dentists Drs Allyson and Jason Drew can provide quick and lasting relief by using a cutting-edge dental #Solea CO2 laser to eliminate the pain associated with each type of sore and greatly speed up healing.

A cold sore is an inflamed, contagious fluid-filled blister on your lips or near your mouth, caused by a herpes viral infection.

A canker sore is a non-contagious open sore on the inside of your mouth that is caused by an overreaction of your immune system to a minor injury or other stresses.

Both are very painful and can last for several weeks.

The laser kills any viral or other infection present, seals nerve endings. This eliminates any pain from the sores and greatly accelerates healing.

Laser treatment reduces healing time dramatically, often down to three days.
