WHAT IS OZONE THERAPY?
Ozone is a naturally occurring colorless gas made up of three oxygen atoms, and it can be used during a number of procedures to disinfect the treated area. The use of ozone therapy can also improve the body’s intake and use of oxygen, which activates the immune system and helps with the healing process. When it comes to cavities and decay, ozone has preventive properties that make the therapy advantageous when delivered into root canals after the cleaning, shaping and irrigation process.
USES OF OZONE THERAPY
Since ozone has natural antimicrobial properties (it can prevent and stop bacteria growth), this gas can be used during dental treatments to:
- Disinfect the mouth
- Treat inflammation of the gums caused by periodontal disease
- Stop small cavities from further decay
- Treat ulcers or mouth sores
- Help with tooth sensitivity
BENEFITS OF OZONE THERAPY
Ozone therapy can be beneficial for many patients experiencing common dental health issues, or for those who would like a holistic approach to preventive care. Some benefits of ozone therapy include its ability to:
- Improve healing time
- Stimulate the body’s natural immune response
- Inactivate bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeast
