Ozone and Dentistry

One of the main goals in dentistry is reducing the presence of microorganisms that cause infections of the gums, teeth, and bone.  These infections can result from a single organism or a combination of organisms.  The properties of ozone, its anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic properties, are the foundation of what make it work so well in dentistry.

 

In combination with conventional dental therapies, we use ozone protocols to:

 

  • prevent and arrest tooth decay
  • disinfect teeth during root canal therapy
  • treat oral abscesses, herpetic lesions, infections, and ulcerations
  • treat periodontal tissues (gum and bone)
  • disinfect hard and soft tissues prior to and after tooth extraction
  • treat jawbone cavitations and osteonecrosis
  • treat pain and dysfunction in the temporomandibular joint and surrounding structures
  • help support sinus health, and
  • stimulate the immune system.
