Ozone therapy is an amplification of our own natural response. Our neutrophils, class of white blood cells, produce ozone gas to combat disease. Ozone therapy is safe and very effective. One molecule of ozone is more effective than 5000 molecules of chlorine. The negative charge acts like a strong magnet and pulls the ozone towards the positive charge of the inflammation and infection.
As a small gas, it can penetrate everywhere. In addition to the dental benefits, ozone can have a remarkable impact on systemic function as well. The antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory impact is quite broad spectrum.
Ozone therapy has become ubiquitous in our practice. It is a cornerstone of our gum and cavity preventive protocols. Ozone can be infused around the gums, sprayed onto a decayed surface, and used at home in oil. We have found ozone to reduce infection, prevent root canal therapy, and reduce temperature sensitivity. We also offer ozone to fumigate root canals prior to filling them.
