  • What are cold sores?

    Cold sores, or fever blisters, are small, painful lesions caused by the herpes simplex virus, appearing predominantly on the lips, around the mouth, or gums. Despite their size, they can be a source of significant discomfort and embarrassment due to their highly contagious nature, spreading easily through direct contact.

  • How are cold sores treated?

    While cold sores have traditionally been managed with topical creams, oral medications, or home remedies focusing on symptom relief, Westhill Dental offers a more definitive solution. Our laser cold sore treatment precisely targets the virus-infected cells, drastically reducing healing time, alleviating pain, and reducing the frequency of future outbreaks. This quick, non-invasive procedure requires no anesthesia, ensuring you can immediately resume your daily activities with minimal interruption.

  • What causes cold sores?

    Cold sores are primarily caused by the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), with potential contributions from herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2), commonly associated with genital herpes. The virus enters the body through minor breaks in the skin or mucous membranes around the mouth. Once inside, it remains dormant in nerve cells, reactivating due to triggers like stress, sun exposure, illness, or hormonal fluctuations, leading to outbreaks.
