Dental Applications of Ozone Treatment

Ozone is an elemental form of oxygen that can break down the cell membranes of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites while leaving healthy cells unaffected. Ozone supports dental health by breaking down bacteria and cleaning your tissues, while also acting in a preventative manner to eliminate the environment supportive of anaerobic bacteria in the first place.

Ozone has been found to kill pathogenic organisms 3500 times faster than chlorine with no toxic side effects or byproducts. Medical studies on ozone demonstrate great benefits including improved wound healing​, improved immune system response, and increased delivery of oxygen to hypoxic tissues. We utilize our on-site generated ozone in a variety of ways to thoroughly support your health.

Why and how do we use ozone?

Our office mainly uses ozone in the following forms:

  • Ozone gas eliminates bacteria and decay, desensitizes in restorative appointments, and promotes internal healing.
  • ​Ozonated water is used in all operatories to sterilize and provide additional benefits during dental cleanings.
  • Ozonated olive oil is applied topically to help heal tissue after extractions and other procedures. It can be purchased at our office to be used as an additional at-home healing therapy.

What can ozone therapy help with?

Ozone gas is able to reach deep into the gum tissues that you can’t reach with a toothbrush to eliminate bacteria and support gum health. Combined with good home care and regular cleanings, this can vastly improve the health of your gums and reduce the need for more invasive procedures.

When removing decay, ozone eliminates bacteria, sterilizes the area, and reduces post-operative sensitivity and pain. The ozone gas permeates the tubules of the tooth and gum pockets to provide effective and conservative sterilization while also supporting rapid recovery and improving long-term results.

Tooth sensitivity can be caused by a variety of factors, including compromised tooth and gum structure. Ozone therapy removes bacteria from the teeth and gums, strengthens tooth structures, and reduces sensitivity.

Localized ozone injections can significantly reduce the duration and discomfort of canker sores, often allowing them to clear up in a matter of days or even hours, depending on how quickly you catch them.

Ozone supports rapid tissue healing and recovery from the extraction, allowing the extraction site to recover quickly and effectively by removing any local bacteria, infusing the tissues with oxygen, and reducing opportunities for infections.

Our office is dedicated to providing you with the best options we can find to support a healthy and happy smile. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.
