Ozone therapy is an energized form of oxygen, or ozone gas, used as a natural, and safe way to eliminate bacteria and fungus from the teeth and mouth. Bacteria in the mouth thrive on acidity, creating dental decay. The ozone gas is naturally attracted to areas of inflammation and infection in the mouth, making it a popular treatment plan to disinfect the mouth prior to treatments like tooth extraction or surgery. With the introduction of ozone gas, the problem areas are eliminated, allowing the healthy cells to remain, not only restoring balance to the mouth, but also promoting a healthy overall immune system.
Ozone therapy can be beneficial to incorporate into treatments such for:
- Tooth Sensitivity – Over time, teeth can become worn down, leading to sensitivity issues. The application of ozone has been found to effectively reduce the sensitivity of exposed enamel and dentin as well as the tooth root.
- Gum Disease – In addition to regular teeth cleanings, ozone therapy can be used to kill the bacteria in the gum tissues responsible for gum disease.
- Cavities – Ozone therapy is used as a pre-treatment plan to fully eliminate all harmful bacteria, followed by a repair with a filling.
Ozone therapy is extremely beneficial for patients who are fearful of the dentist. Because it is a non-invasive treatment, patients can relax and feel more comfortable during the treatment process. The nature of ozone therapy also promotes a healthy mouth, leading to less decay, and therefore, fewer intense treatments.
