Ozone Therapy

Introduction

What if we had an agent that could treat and eliminate infection and support the surrounding healthy tissue without toxic side effects? Well now we do, with oxygen/ozone therapy for dentistry!

How does oxygen/ozone therapy work?

When oxygen/ozone is introduced into the living system, it causes the infective microorganisms to become over-stressed and die. This disinfects the area, both safely and effectively. This also induces a multitude of natural biochemical and physiologic reactions, including but not limited to better blood flow, enhanced immune response and a more rapid healing response.

How can oxygen/ozone help in my dental care?

Within the accepted standard of care and with proper application, ozone can enhance the outcome in all aspects of dentistry.  It sterilizes all aspects of the tooth, even into the smallest canals and tubules. This allows for a truly biologic root canal and thus retention of your natural teeth. Tooth decay or caries, which is really a “tooth infection”, can be arrested almost immediately upon proper exposure to oxygen/ozone therapy.

Can I be allergic to Oxygen/Ozone?

NO, it is impossible to be allergic to oxygen/ozone. Ozone is just an energized form of oxygen. It is naturally formed by the sun and lightning in storms. Without the ozone layer high in the atmosphere, life could not exist on our planet. Ozone actually filters out the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays and, in addition, makes for that beautiful blue color in the sky.
