Oxygen/Ozone in Dentistry
One of the most complex and perplexing problems in dentistry today is infection control. The oral cavity is a sea of microorganisms normally living in balance with the entire human body. Under certain conditions pathogenic or disease-causing microorganisms can become the dominant life forms, thus creating what we call infection. these pathogenic microorganisms live together in what is called a biofilm. This biofilm supports a mixed type infection made up of bacteria, viruses, fungi and even parasites. The difficulty is that each of these disease-causing types need a different drug to eliminate its dominance. What if we had an agent that could treat and eliminate the infection and, in addition, support the surrounding healthy tissue without toxic side effects?
We do now with oxygen/Ozone therapy for Dentistry.
Oxygen/Ozone, when introduced into the living systems, creates what is called a transient oxidative burst. The infective microorganisms have no natural defense against this reaction, and as a result are over stressed and die. Thus, oxygen/Ozone disinfects the area treated, both safely and effectively. This oxidative burst also introduces a multitude of natural biochemical and physiological reactions. These reactions include better blood flow and enhanced immune response, and a more rapid healing response.
Staying with the excepted standard of care, with proper application, oxygen/Ozone can enhance the outcome in all aspects of dentistry. For example, periodontal disease is a chronic gum and bone infection. By utilizing the different application forms of oxygen/Ozone such as ozonated water, ozonated oils, and placing Oxygen/Ozone directly into the infected gum pockets, periodontal disease can be arrested without the use of pharmaceutical drugs and associated side effects. Another area of concern is infected root canals. Oxygen/Ozone therapy sterilize all aspects of the tooth, even into the smallest canals and tubules. This allows for a truly biologic root canal and this read tension of your natural teeth. Tooth decay or carries, which is really a tooth infection, can be arrested almost immediately upon proper exposure to oxygen/Ozone therapy. This procedure is especially useful in treating children, as minimal to no drilling the tooth is necessary.
And if you’re wondering…
It is impossible to be allergic to oxygen/Ozone. Ozone is just an energized form of oxygen. Ozone is naturally formed by the sun and lightning and storms. Without the Ozone layer high in the atmosphere, life cannot exist in our planet. Ozone actually filters out the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays and, in addition, makes for a that beautiful blue sky color in the sky.
