Ozonated Water is one of the most wonderful substances known to mankind. The process of ozonating water can produce the result of “Purewater” free of bacteria, viruses, spores, parasites, and chemicals. A high concentration of ozone kills bacteria very quickly and is thousand times more powerful than other bacterial killing agents.
Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry makes use of Ozone as part of comprehensive holistic dental care.
When our hygienists do Scaling and Root Planing on patients who need gum treatment, as part of this procedure the gum tissue is irrigated with ozonated water killing the bacteria under the gum line thus providing better dental care for patients.
The Ozone water is made right in the office by using an Ozone Generator.
All you need to know about Ozone Therapy
What is Ozone?
Ozone is both a natural and a human-made product that occurs in the earth’s upper atmosphere.
Ozone provides a safe alternative to reduce infection in your mouth. At Natural & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer patients ozone therapy to restore their oral health.
What is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone therapy is a chemical-free treatment of pathogenic bacteria build-up in your mouth. Ozone is a highly reactive allotrope of oxygen that eliminates bacteria in your mouth through oxidation.
Ozone also neutralizes acids created by the bacteria, creating a hostile environment that keeps bacteria gone for longer. It will also allow beneficial micro-organisms to thrive in your mouth to prevent further infection.
How can Ozone therapy help reduce tooth decay?
Ozone therapy can reach a depth of up to 5mm into your tooth, killing bacteria that cause decay. While it will not reverse large cavities, it will allow your tooth to re-mineralize.
Ozone is one of the most valuable tools for treating tooth decay in its early stages, and it allows dentists to reduce the need to cut decay out for a more conservative approach to dentistry.
What are the other uses of Ozone Therapy?
Ozone therapy is used in conjunction with scaling and root planing to treat gingivitis and periodontal disease. It can significantly reduce inflammation in your gums and promote gum reattachment.
For patients who struggle with sensitive teeth, ozone can also improve teeth sensitivity without fluoride or other chemical treatments.
Ozone therapy can also be used as an alternative to antibacterial medications used in root canals. This will reduce discomfort after your procedure for faster recovery.
