Is dental ozone therapy safe? Learn about treatments in Turlock, CA

His practice is dedicated to helping children and adults achieve and maintain their oral health and wellness. One way in which he is assisting patients in improving their dental health with holistic services is with the use of ozone treatments.
What is ozone?
Ozone is a type of oxygen that is used in certain dental procedures to address infections, as ozone can eliminate viruses, bacteria, and free radicals that can negatively affect one’s health. Ozone is administered as either a gas or in a liquid form (ozonated water). When patients are struggling with conditions such as periodontal disease or dental decay, they may benefit from integrating ozone therapy into their dental services.
How is ozone therapy used in biological dentistry?
Ozone can be utilized in a variety of ways in the dental office:
- Periodontal disease – because ozone can kill bacteria, it is extremely beneficial to use in conjunction with treatment for periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is an infection that can be controlled and addressed with the use of ozone therapy.
- Root canal – root canal therapy, or endodontic therapy, is a procedure that is performed to treat a tooth that has become infected within the dental pulp. This treatment is done to eliminate the need to extract the natural tooth and seek replacement options such as implants, dentures, or bridges. When integrated with ozone therapy, the bacteria within the tooth is eliminated and patients experience faster healing and recovery.
- Dental decay – because ozone is a gas, it can permeate into areas of decay that other substances cannot. Ozone therapy is used to address bacteria that may be in or around the teeth and gums, and can also help recalcify tooth structures.
- Sensitivity – sensitive teeth is a common complaint for many of our patients. By integrating ozone therapy, many patients will be able to address their sensitivity issues since the ozone can help harden the tooth structure.
- Safety – because ozone is natural, and does not react with other medications, patients will not be allergic to ozone nor will there be reactions to be concerned about.
- Post-operative care – ozone therapy is also used during the placement of crowns and the treatment of cavities to not only address inflammatory issues but to reduce pain and stimulate faster recovery.
