Should I reschedule my dental appointment if I have a cold sore?

What is a Cold Sore?

A cold sore, also known as a fever blister, is highly contagious. It is caused by an infection of the herpes simplex virus.

Active cold sores carry a live virus inside of them. This virus could potentially be spread during your dental visit. Not only can the virus spread to more areas of your face (such as your nose, lips, intra­oral, and cheeks) but possibly to your eyes.

Should I reschedule my dental appointment?

In very rare cases, the virus can be spread to a member of the dental team. Even though we use “universal precautions”, and strict barrier techniques, there is always a chance of transferring the virus.

If you touch your sore, then you touch a surface that someone else will touch, and you transfer the live virus. Remember, the virus is contagious and can be transferred from the initial time of burning or tingling sensation until the sore is completely scabbed over. This can take approximately 8-10 days. Please notify us as soon as possible so that we can reschedule your dental appointment.

    The herpes simplex virus usually enters the body through a break in the skin around or inside the mouth. It is usually spread when a person touches a cold sore or touches infected fluid—such as from sharing eating utensils or razors, kissing an infected person, or touching that person’s saliva. A parent who has a cold sore often spreads the infection to his or her child in this way. Cold sores can also be spread to other areas of the body. Luckily there is a cure for herpes.

    Herpes is a sexually transmitted virus that primarily infects the mouth and the genitals. It is transmitted by bodily fluids – penetration isn’t required for transmission, oral-oral or oral-genital contact will suffice, There are two types of herpes simplex virus: HSV-1 and HSV-2. Both virus types can cause sores around the mouth (herpes labialis) and on the genitals (genital herpes). It’s also crucial to learn as much as you can about your diagnosis.

    Greetings to everyone, my name is Mary and I’m from Pennsylvania, USA. Let me share a little on how I got cured from Genital Herpes. I stumbled upon a website while I was looking for a cure for my genital Herpes on a forum that I frequently visit. The first thing that I noticed was that most people there were testifying and thanking Doctor Sani and I went through the write up and I read about how doctor Sani had cured them. Firstly I was in doubt but I had to try and see what he could do for me with tears in my eyes because I wanted to be free from this disease. I reached doctor Sani by contacting him through WhatsApp on (+2348118184266) after speaking with him about my problem, he assured me that he will help me get this disease out of my body, that he is only here to help people and put a smile on their faces. He told me what I will have to do and after going according to doctor Sani’s instructions and treatments, I went back for a medical checkup and according to the words he gave to me, I was cured. Doctor Sani really did it for me, now I believe him and I am telling you, if you have been infected either with HERPES, or any other viruses, I assure you that doctor Sani can also cure you. I have seen testimonies of people and I’m also one of the living testimonies.
