What is Dental Ozone?
Ozone (O3) is a chemical compound composed of three Oxygen atoms. It is a very powerful oxidizer and disinfectant, which makes it effective at destroying germs.
Dental or medical ozone is a pure medical-grade mixture of Oxygen and Ozone. It can safely destroy bacteria, fungi, and viruses. When medical or dental ozone comes into contact with abnormal cells, oxidation occurs and kills the unhealthy cells.
Ozone has been used in the medical field for many years to treat various diseases because it’s safe and free of side effects. Ozone is an excellent tool in dentistry because it harms diseased cells but leaves healthy cells intact. It also poses no risk of allergic reaction.
Some of the most effective uses for dental ozone therapy include:
- Treatment of periodontal disease. Ozone can be utilized during deep cleanings as a rinse or to disinfect the pockets that form around the teeth.
- Restoration or treatment of deep decay. In gas form, ozone can restore teeth by destroying decay-causing bacteria.
- Sterilization of teeth before fillings or sealants. Ozonated water can be applied as a pre-treatment.
- Improve surgical healing. Ozone can be used during procedures such as dental implants, both pre- and post-operatively, to improve healing.
- Treatment of mouth infections. Ozone can be used to kill fungi, bacteria, and viral infections in the mouth.
- Treatment of dry mouth or chronic bad breath. Dental ozone is a highly effective odor-neutralizer.
