What is ozone therapy, and how is it integrated into dental treatments?
Contrary to the common misconception that ozone is a pollutant that is harmful, it has been found to be a naturally occurring transient form of oxygen that can be incredibly beneficial when applied correctly. Dr. Christopher Naranjo and his team at Greenbelt Dental Health in Austin, Texas, are excited to offer oxygen/ozone therapy for patients looking for alternative healing with various health benefits.
What is ozone therapy?
Ozone was discovered in the 1840s by a German chemist named C.F. Schonbein. It wasn’t until 30 years later that ozone was used in a medical application by Dr. C. Lender, who used oxygen and ozone therapy to purify blood cells in test tubes. Ozone is regularly used for certain medical disorders to help with symptoms, including the following:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Parkinson’s disease
At our dental practice, we also utilize ozone dental treatment to help improve one’s oral health and wellness with this unique element.
How is ozone therapy used in dentistry?
Dr. Christopher Naranjo uses oxygen and ozone therapies at his practice in Austin, Texas, administering it in many different forms to meet the needs of his patients. Ozone may be utilized in an oral rinse that can kill off viruses and bacteria. It can be applied to teeth that have cavities, used in root canal therapy, injected into the bone for cavitations, or in instances of periodontal disease. Ozone can also be administered as a liquid or a gas to help facilitate faster healing after oral procedures. By integrating oxygen and ozone therapy in dentistry, patients can enjoy its benefits and achieve a healthier solution with the help of their dental team!
