Ozone therapy offers anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral agents as an alternative without the toxic side-effects of antibiotics. Our office produces ozone through a medical-grade generator, which produces ozone in the form of a liquid or gas and allows us to produce contaminant-free pure ozone in precise concentrations to treat the head and neck, teeth, and associated structures. Ozone is safe and effective and no toxic byproducts are produced, only oxygen and water. Ozone has no associated medical complications, therefore all patients regardless of health and age can benefit. Here are 6 ways we put the power of Ozone to use:
Cavities: Ozone gas can be used to treat cavities. It can be applied to deep grooves and the sides of teeth to kill bacteria on contact. It then promotes the re-calcification of the tooth structure increasing its strength. If a cavity develops and needs a restoration, the tooth can be sterilized killing any remaining bacteria before it is filled.
Gum disease: Combined application of ozone gas, water, and oil are ideal for fighting and treating the bacteria that cause gum disease.
Root canal therapy: a routine therapy to treat infection within the pulp of the tooth. Ozonated water and gas can be used during the root canal procedure to kill existing bacteria and sterilize root canal tubules and fine accessory canals.
Cosmetic dentistry: Ozone makes teeth whitening faster and more effective while decreasing sensitivity.
Sensitivity: Ozone is a great solution for teeth that have become overly sensitive due to receding gums and weakened worn down tooth structure. Ozone gas can desensitize and close off pores on the tooth’s surface that transmit hot and cold temperatures.
Boost immunity and fight pathogens: Ozone is effective for treating and preventing infections from bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungus. It boosts the immune system by increasing oxygenation to the tissues and cells that need it the most, speeds healing, and decreases inflammation.
