  • What are cold sores?

    Cold sores are painful blisters that typically form on the lips, around the mouth, or on the gums. They are caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1) and are highly contagious. The blisters fill with a clear fluid and then crust over before healing.

  • How are cold sores treated?

    While there is no cure for cold sores, our treatment options can significantly reduce their severity and duration. South Peek Dental Care uses laser therapy to destroy the virus, which speeds up healing and decreases pain. For laser therapy to work correctly, you need to treat the cold sore early, so call right away if you experience the first signs of an outbreak. Laser therapy typically clears up the outbreak in two days rather than the four or five days it takes to clear on its own.

  • What causes cold sores?

    Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). The virus can be transmitted through close contact with the infected area, often through kissing or sharing utensils, towels, or other personal items. Stress, illness, or exposure to sunlight can often trigger outbreaks in those who carry the virus.
