Regardless of location, cold sores are irritating, painful, and, when visible, can be embarrassing.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 08, 2014
Within the past decade, Cashion Dental has risen to become one of the premier dental practices in the Bryan-College Park metro area, providing top-notch services to residents of the region. Recently, it announced an enhancement to its services by announcing the availability of soft-tissue laser therapy for fever blisters, which are better known as cold sores.
Fever blisters usually develop due to a virus, but they can also be triggered by stress and excessive sunlight, among other factors. Although often associated with an appearance on the outside of the mouth, they can also occur on gums or the roof inside the mouth. Regardless of location, cold sores are irritating, painful, and, when visible, can be embarrassing.
For the first time since it opened its doors for business in 2004, Cashion Dental is offering soft-tissue dental laser therapy as the ultimate solution for cold sores. To be more specific, the staff at Cashion Dental uses a diode laser, a tool that has been used in the field of dentistry for over two decades.
Before starting the treatment, patients are provided with safety glasses, which must be worn to keep them safe and undisturbed. The hemoglobin, water, and melanin are the only molecules that attract the monochromatic laser light, which is set at a certain wavelength to ensure such a scope. Thus, the laser energy is solely focuses on eradicating the blisters, and it does not affect anything else in the patient's mouth.
Soft-tissue is ultimately faster, more accurate, and less painful than other methods of treating fever blisters. The diode laser used at Cashion Dental seals off blood vessels and nerve endings, which result in preventing the mouth from bleeding and developing post-operative pain and swelling. Constantly improved upon with the unabated advance of technology over the past 20 years, soft-tissue laser surgery is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
