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.
