Ozone Dental Therapy
What is Ozone Dental Therapy?
Ozone dental therapy is a holistic treatment that significantly reduces the presence of oral bacteria. This is a minimally invasive alternative that fights off the advance of tooth decay. With ozone dental therapy, the damaging bacteria that break down tooth enamel, leading to decay, are eradicated by altering the oral environment.
How does Ozone Dental Therapy work?
Ozone dental therapy uses ozone gas and its powerful antimicrobial properties as a treatment for tooth decay. The negative charge of the ozone is naturally attracted to areas of inflammation and infection. When a cavity is exposed to ozone gas, the gas will penetrate the decay, kill all the bacteria surrounding the tooth and alter the environment so bacteria are unable to flourish. The bacteria that live in your mouth thrive on acidity. Ozone neutralizes oral acidity, altering pH levels, so damaging oral bacteria is eradicated, leading to a healthier mouth and teeth.
Ozone dental therapy is an effective, natural way to reduce infection and inflammation, and is an outstanding preventative treatment to help a patient avoid the need to undergo a root canal treatment.
