How Is Ozone Therapy Beneficial To Your Oral Health?
Dr. Singer believes in providing dental care with a focus on your overall health and wellbeing. He believes in looking at the patients as a whole and using natural and non-invasive techniques to treat his patients. One way he does this is by using ozone therapy, a treatment that uses a medical-grade ozone, a pure form of oxygen, to treat many common dental problems.
Which Conditions Can Ozone Therapy Treat?
Our mouths are full of harmful bacteria just waiting to damage our teeth and gums. Ozone therapy is a safe way to eliminate bacteria and fungus from your teeth and mouth. The ozone gas is naturally attracted to areas of inflammation and infection in your mouth, making it a popular treatment plan to disinfect the mouth prior to certain dental treatments. When the ozone gas is introduced in your mouth, it kills the harmful bacteria, allowing the healthy cells to remain. Ozone therapy can be beneficial to treatments for:
- Periodontal disease
- Tooth infection and decay
- Tooth sensitivity
- Canker sores and cold sores
- Bone infections
- Teeth whitening
Benefits of Ozone Therapy
One of the biggest worries when many patients visit the dentist is the amount of discomfort a treatment may cause. Patients love ozone therapy because it is non-invasive, does not require the use of any drills, and does not cause discomfort. In fact, we are able to treat many conditions without using novocaine. This allows patients to return to their normal daily activities immediately following treatment. This treatment is also free from any chemicals, making it completely safe for use. Most patients are good candidates for treatment, especially those who are sensitive to novocaine.
