Ozone (O3) is a powerful, naturally occurring gas that helps us in many ways every day as a sterilization agent for public water systems, fruits and vegetables, air purification systems, and swimming pools. In the medical community, ozone can help treat a variety of diseases and speed up the healing process following procedures. It includes the modality to treat patinets who have been diagnosed with a root canal. Ozone therapy is the use of medical-grade ozone (a form of pure oxygen) to promote a healing response in the body. It is very safe, minimally invasive and causes fewer side effects than most medications.
In dentistry, ozone therapy is used to help treat a variety of conditions, including:
Ozone removes acid from key areas of your mouth, killing harmful bacteria and neutralizing acidic waste to give you a healthier mouth and aid in the healing process. We may use ozone therapy to treat dental infections and prevent the need for more invasive treatments. Ozone can also be used to help whiten teeth. If another dentist has diagnosed your with one of the dental problems above, we encourage you to seek a second opinion - you may be a candidate for using ozone therapy to save your teeth.
