How Does Ozone Therapy Work?
It’s very simple! When we introduce oxygen/ozone into your system, it disinfects the area safely and effectively by producing what’s called a “transient oxidative burst,” which is harmless to the body but is able to destroy decay-causing agents. The process also helps increase your blood flow, support your immune defenses, and boost your healing response. Better yet, no patients can be allergic to the process or risk any unforeseen side effects by choosing to undergo it, and it doesn’t negatively interact with any existing medications, either. You won’t just be enjoying a healthier smile after ozone therapy — you’ll be enjoying a healthier body!
Ozone therapy can provide valuable assistance for several dental situations and procedures, including:
- Periodontal disease. The healing process can be helped by applying ozonated water and/or ozone gas to the gum line and supporting tissues.
- Root canal therapy. Ozone can be used for several purposes, including sterilizing the canal system, stimulating faster healing, and killing bacteria. Because it is a gas, ozone can reach tiny areas in the tooth that could not be treated by liquid, resulting in a truly sterile system.
- Ozone will kill bacteria on contact, and it can permeate hard-to-reach areas below the gum line and in the grooves of teeth.
- Flooding a sensitive dental area with ozone gas can harden the structure, resulting in significantly less sensitivity.
