Did you know that dentists can treat recurrent oral herpes outbreaks with a special laser to accelerate the healing process and effectively prevent future occurrence in the same area? Dr. Mike Mango has been performing this special laser treatment since 2008 to help patients get significant relief faster from oral herpes outbreaks. He utilizes the most modern dental technology in his practice, including both the Diode and Biolase lasers.
Laser treatment outcomes are optimal when the patient comes in to the dentist’s office as soon as a patient starts to notice the outbreak.

The NIH research concluded that treatment with the diode laser reduced the length of recovery time and pain severity faster than treatment with acyclovir cream. Read more about it here:
