OZONE DENTAL THERAPY IN OUR PRACTICE!

 

WHAT IS OZONE DENTAL THERAPY?

HOW DOES OZONE DENTAL THERAPY WORK?

Ozone dental therapy works to disinfect and prevent common dental issues with the administration of ozone gas. The negative charge of the ozone is naturally attracted to areas of inflammation and infection. When a cavity is exposed to ozone gas, which not only kills the bacteria surrounding the tooth, but alters the environment so the bacteria is unable to flourish. The bacteria that live in your mouth thrive on acidity. Ozone neutralizes oral acidity, altering pH levels, so damaging oral bacteria is eradicated, leading to a healthier mouth and teeth.

Ozone dental therapy is an effective, natural way to reduce infection and inflammation, and is an outstanding preventative treatment to help a patient avoid the need to undergo a root canal treatment.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF OZONE DENTAL THERAPY?

CAN OZONE THERAPY FIX CAVITIES?

Ozone dental therapy is used to treat minor to medium levels of tooth decay. Unfortunately, if you are experiencing severe tooth decay, a filling may be required as part of your treatment. The ozone gas, when applied to the teeth and gums, removes bacterial waste products, halts the advance of cavities, and accelerates remineralization, strengthening the teeth.

CAN OZONE THERAPY BE USED FOR OTHER TREATMENTS?

Ozone therapy has been effectively used in many dental treatments. Ozone dental therapy is an effective treatment for patients who suffer from tooth sensitivity. Patients have reported fewer issues with cold and hot sensations after treatment. Gum disease is a common problem, and the ozone therapy’s ability to ward off bacteria has proven to be highly beneficial. Ozone therapy has also been used as part of a root canal treatment to sterilize the canal to reduce the risk of infection and the need for retreatment or extraction.

IS OZONE THERAPY SAFE?

Ozone therapy is not new. It has been regularly used for decades for the treatment of a variety of diseases. Ozone dental therapy is considered a safe treatment to help maintain a healthy mouth and teeth. The treatment is completely natural and free from side effects that associated with many medications – it is simply a gas, not a medication.

IS OZONE DENTAL THERAPY PAINFUL?

If you are someone who does whatever is necessary to avoid the drill, ozone dental therapy can help you maintain healthy teeth. For children and adults who fear dental treatment, this therapy does not involve drills, fillings, or injections. Ozone dental therapy is painless. It is a non-invasive method that treats the early signs of tooth decay. When oral health is monitored regularly, patients may never need to experience the drill.

WHAT IS THE EXPECTED RECOVERY TIME?

One of the more notable benefits of ozone therapy is recovery time. Ozone dental therapy is minimally invasive. Since there is no drilling, topical numbing treatments or pain medications that can leave you feeling tired and groggy, you will be able to comfortably return to your daily routine as soon as your appointment has concluded.
