If you have oral lesions, you know that these issues can affect the way you look and the level of confidence you feel in social interactions. Oral lesions can be painful or can interfere with shaving, wearing makeup and other daily activities. The dentists at Rye Smiles for Life provide advanced and effective oral lesions treatment options to suit your needs, your budget, and your preferences. We can perform laser dentistry for oral lesions to help you look and feel your best every day. Here are some of the most important things that you and your family should know about laser dentistry therapies for lesions in Fairfax.

What Are the Most Common Types of Oral Lesions?

At Rye Smiles for Life, we treat a wide range of dental issues. Some of the types of oral lesions we see in our office include canker sores, cold sores, HPV lesions and hemangiomas.

Canker Sores

Canker sores are often painful and can cause ugly sores around your mouth. Our dentists can provide laser dentistry treatment options that can speed up healing and can eliminate issues with these sores around your lips or inside your mouth. We work with you to determine the best course of action to address these problems effectively.

Cold Sores

Sometimes referred to as fever blisters, cold sores can occur at any time. These oral lesions are caused by herpes simplex virus types 1 or 2. Our dental team will work with you to determine the best way to approach treatment for these issues.

HPV Lesions

Human papillomavirus, also referred to as HPV, are the result of a virus that can be sexually transmitted. Oral HPV symptoms may include sores inside the mouth. The dentists at Rye Smiles for Life will provide you with help in managing this viral infection and dealing with the lesions that are associated with this condition.

Hemangiomas

Hemangiomas are congenital birthmarks that appear as raised or rubbery birthmarks. These lesions can appear anywhere on the body and are made up of excess blood vessels that create raised patches inside your mouth, on your gums or on your lips. Laser dentistry treatment can eliminate the ugly appearance of these birthmarks and can boost your body’s own ability to heal itself.

Treatment Options for Dental Lesions

In many cases, we can recommend dental laser therapies for patients with these issues. Other options include antiviral therapies and traditional surgeries to excise the affected areas. Over-the-counter medications and home remedies are also available. These treatment methods, however, are much less effective and more likely to cause side effects than laser therapy from the dental team at Rye Smiles for Life.

The Benefits of Laser Therapy

Laser therapies are one of the most innovative forms of oral lesions treatment available in the Fairfax area. At Rye Smiles for Life, we work with you or your family members to provide useful solutions for your dental problems, helping you resolve them quickly. Laser therapies offer some significant benefits for patients with all types of oral lesions:

  • Laser dentistry procedures are far more precise than most other methods and can promote the preservation of healthy tissue that may surround the affected areas.
  • Little or no anesthesia is usually required for laser dentistry. These procedures usually produce little or no pain for our patients.
  • Laser therapies are designed to allow faster healing and recovery.
  • Other methods for treating lesions can take much longer to produce the desired results.

At our dental office, we can deliver practical solutions that work to reduce the unsightly appearance and pain caused by lesions on the gums, lips or mouth. Rye Smiles for Life will work with you to determine the best course of action for your specific situation and set of needs.

What to Expect From Laser Therapy for Lesions

After your lesions have been diagnosed, the dentists at Rye Smiles for Life will discuss your options with you. If you choose laser therapy for your condition, you can expect to spend between 30 minutes to an hour during each therapy session. Your dentist will adjust the laser setting to the precise depth and wavelength to provide optimal excision of damaged and diseased tissue and to leave healthy tissue intact. Most of our patients report that they can go back to their regular activities within hours or days of the treatment. Additionally, these treatment options can reduce pain and ensure faster healing.
