In-Office Laser Treatment of Canker Sores

 

Dr. Randy and his staff often receive questions on how to treat children’s canker sores and cold sores. Up until now, their answers have always been to purchase OTC medication, like Canker X, and wait out the approximate 1–2-week healing time. This healing time can be lengthy and very painful to the patient.

 

 

However, with today’s technology, we’re able to treat these sores with laser dentistry tools. In the 15-minute appointment we can laser the sore, pain free, which stimulates cells to turnover and ultimately provides fast healing times, allowing your child to leave the office relieved from any discomfort they had walking in.

 

 

For ultimate results, we ask that you bring your child to the office when the canker sore begins or within a few days of it’s appearance. To schedule an appointment please call 843-971-6221.
