Ozone Therapy

What Is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone therapy involves the use of ozone gas in medical settings. This gas can be applied directly for infection control or mixed with water or other liquids. Ozone (O3) is a colorless gas consisting of three oxygen atoms, giving it unique therapeutic properties. It has been used for over 100 years and extensively studied. Ozone effectively kills harmful bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoans, and removes debris. As a supercharged oxygen molecule, ozone is highly reactive and destroys infectious cells like viruses and bacteria. Ozone is made in our office with the latest generators. This natural substance is both an antioxidant and antibacterial, with no side effects.

Why is Ozone Therapy Used for Dentistry?

Infection control is one of the toughest challenges in dentistry. The mouth and oral cavity are active body parts used daily for speaking, singing, breathing, and eating, creating an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive. Not all bacteria are beneficial to health, which is where Ozone Therapy steps in.


Ozone Benefits

  1. Reverse cavities by arresting or stopping the bacterial growth that caused the original cavity.
  2. Eliminate gum disease, as our hygienist may use a solution of ozonated water to help disinfect and clear bacteria from the oral cavity during deep cleaning.
  3. Reduce the sensitivity of fillings.
  4. Stimulate healing after surgery, as the ozone gas can be used to clear an infected site after a tooth extraction.
