    what causes cold sores chugach dental anchorage alaska

    What causes cold sores?

    Cold sores are caused by a virus called herpes simplex. Cold sores are very common but affect people in different ways. Some people get breakouts often while others almost never have them.

    You might be more likely to see a cold sore appear following:

    • Exposure to bright sun, cold temperatures, or high winds
    • Cold, flu, or other illness
    • Periods of stress in your life
    • Hormonal changes in your body

    You might be able to reduce the frequency of breakouts by identifying your cold sore “triggers” and avoiding them. However, if you feel the onset of a cold sore, usually an itching or tingling sensation in your face, seek treatment at our office right away.

    How long does it take?

    Our laser cold sore treatments are fast. Just a few minutes is all it takes for each treatment. It’s very comfortable and usually requires no anesthesia.

    Is more than 1 treatment needed?

    Cold sores can’t be cured forever. Some patients may need up to 3 treatments for the greatest relief of symptoms.

    Do I need to get treatment before the cold sore appears?

    Seeking treatment at the earliest signs of a cold sore is most effective. However, our laser can help you heal faster if a cold sore is already visible.

    Will laser treatment stop my cold sore from hurting?

    Yes! In addition to the cosmetic benefits, laser cold sore treatments stop itching and pain in the affected area.

    I am a new patient at Chugach Dental. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Dr. Jensen cleaned my teeth himself (never had a dentist only hygienist do that before). He was very gentle and gave me options. My follow up visit was for a filling (😩) which I was not looking forward to. Dr. Jensen continually checked on me throughout the procedure and I am feeling great the following day. Thank you!

    Adam is such a knowledgeable and personable guy! He takes the time to explain things and answer questions. He has integrity and doesn’t over treat. Having a dentist you can trust is crucial! He has a friendly and welcoming staff. Overall an excellent experience. Even gave me a nice hot towel at the end – such a treat! Highly recommend Chugach Dental!

    All the staff were incredible. The COVID safety procedures made me feel very comfortable. Adam really listened to me to understand my concerns and provided helpful information for all my questions. He was also great working with my toddler. I was happy to that we talked through different options and I didn’t feel pressured to pick anything that didn’t seem right to me. I also felt respected and supported in my choices.

    I found Dr. Jensen when I was having a dental emergency, and they were able to fit me in within 18 hours of calling. Dr Jensen and his staff are super friendly and helpful. As someone who is super nervous at the dentist, they made the experience as comfortable and easy as possible. They are up front with costs and provide estimates for services before they are provided, even same day. I would highly recommend Dr. Jensen and his team!

    I hadn’t been to the dentist in an embarrassingly long time. Dr. Adam and the staff provided care in a supportive way that made me feel comfortable. Their attention extended beyond just my teeth, and it was nice to be treated with such understanding. I liked that they had options for squeamish folks and could do so many different services; I feel like its a good one-stop option. Also, the team here seemed good-natured (fun and cohesive) and genuinely enjoyed helping me out. It will be way easier to come back to Chugach. Thanks guys!

    Chugach Dental has taken my anxiety out of that dreaded dental visit. Finally! I went in as a new patient for a cleaning and my hygienist was both enjoyable and thorough. Dr.Jensen took his time after my cleaning to discuss the health of my teeth and gums, changes I should make to my routine and future dental work that was only deemed necessary. I appreciate a conservative dentist because my dental insurance only covers my cleanings. Dr. Jensen is young and healthy as a health care provider should be. The office is also really clean and modern, no tacky music or outdated artwork. My appointment was easy to book and I even look forward to going back and having him fix a badly chipped tooth. 5 stars for services and the staff I interacted with. Highly recommended!

    Jeff Conaway

    Dr. Jensen is great. I was nervous to get an issue addressed. He took care of it quickly and the procedure was surprisingly pain free. I continue to see Dr. Jensen for his professionalism and his approach to dentistry that provides what is essential to his patients at a great price.

    Dr. Jensen is such a kind dentist, he’s warm and welcoming and he truly cares about his patients. His staff goes above and beyond to make my family feel comfortable. He has also been really good with my 2 year old son, making him feel comfortable and getting him used to the dentist chair since he was 1. He loves going to see Dr. Jensen! The office is modern and you even have a nice view of the mountains while you’re getting your teeth cleaned! Highly recommend Chugach Dental!!
