Ozone Therapy in Ballston Spa, NY
Protect Your Smile against Infection with This Revitalizing Technique from Dr. Dreher
Infection control is a significant concern in the world of dentistry, and one that we take very seriously here at our Ballston Spa location. After all, there are so many different kinds of bacteria and other microorganisms that can infiltrate our teeth that treatment can often become complicated. What if there was a method that could eliminate infection entirely without any potentially dangerous side effects? Dr. Dreher and his staff aren’t just concerned with your smile – we also want to preserve and support your overall wellness through our work, and ozone therapy helps us accomplish that goal.
How does ozone therapy work?
It’s very simple! When we introduce oxygen/ozone into your system, it disinfects the area treated in a safe and an effective manner 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, your immune defenses, and 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 affect 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 a number of 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.
- Decay – ozone will kill bacteria on contact, and it can permeate hard-to-reach areas below the gum line and into the grooves of teeth.
- Sensitivity – flooding a sensitive dental area with ozone gas can harden the structure, resulting in significantly less sensitivity.
