    Ozone Therapy

    Ozone TherapyOzone is among the most misunderstood elements. It is often mistakenly referred to as a pollutant, and many people think it is unhealthy. In fact, the opposite is true. Ozone is a variation of oxygen, which has many therapeutic uses. Its benefits have been researched and documented extensively.

    There also appears to be a healing reaction instituted by the body upon exposure to ozone. This will prove to be a very useful medicine to be used in many different situations by dentists.

    Why ozone?

    Ozone is a natural substance, which can often take the place of caustic chemicals and invasive techniques.

    • Kills infective microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi on contact
    • Improves blood flow
    • Amplifies immune responses
    • Speeds healing and decreases risk of post-surgical infections
    The Procedure

    Dental Ozone Therapy EquipmentWe create customized trays, which connect to a machine that directly delivers therapeutic ozone. The upper tray is worn and connected to the machine for about 10-12 minutes, then the process is repeated for the lower tray. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes.

    Your trays are reusable and will be kept here in our office for future use, so you won’t need to have impressions taken every time.

    How We Use Ozone Therapy for Dental Patients

    At Dentistry by Dr. David , ozone is used as part of, or an adjunct to, many treatments.

    1. Decay: Cavities exposed to ozone gas will subsequently harden. Sometimes no drilling or filling required. Prior to applying dental sealants on children (with the parent’s approval for the additional treatment) ozone can be applied to the teeth to eliminate the presence of any bacteria that possibly could create a cavity underneath the sealants.
    2. Teeth Hypersensivity: Applying ozone can strengthen enamel and reduce inflammation, easing tooth sensitivity and making daily activities more enjoyable.
    3. Root Canal: Teeth which up to now were so badly decayed that they required root canal treatment to repair, can now often be repaired, and the infection reversed, using this treatment. Also, utilizing the gas during treatment appears to increase the probability of obtaining a successful root canal.
    4. Periodontal (Gum Disease): Ozonated water, oil, and gas are used in combination in the office and at home to kill the bacteria responsible for gum disease.
    5. Infections of the jaw: Failed root canals, cavitations (osteonecrotic lesions), or even failed implants can often be healed by injecting ozone into the area. Tooth extractions and jaw surgeries may well be avoided!

    Dr. David recommends ozone therapy along with teeth cleaning, to maintain optimal oral health

    Results: See How Ozone Eliminates Bacteria

    During a visit we can very easily and quickly provide our patients with the actual “real time” results from an ozone treatment to let them see how their overall oral health benefitted from the treatment. Using a phase contrast microscope we can quickly swab the patient’s mouth to show each patient the “current state” of their mouth on the screen in front of them. We then can follow the same process to show how the ozone has eliminated the bacteria that was present. See the “Before Ozone Treatment” and “After Ozone Treatment” examples below.

    Ozone Can Be Used Often

    The best part is that patients are welcome to schedule ozone appointments as often as they wish to continue to receive its health benefits!
