Ozone Therapy Treatment is a great example of how modern science is changing dentistry and dental practice. Ozone therapy treatment is a minimally invasive way to remove and treat bacteria in the mouth. Smiles of Cary is the Raleigh, North Carolina Ozone Therapy treatment expert! Ozone Therapy treatment is quick and effective because it targets decay-causing bacteria directly. It's painless and safe. How does Ozone Therapy treatment work?
Ozone contains three oxygen atoms rather than the two atoms we usually breathe. The third atom becomes a scavenger, destroying bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites with no toxic side effects or byproducts. It is a powerful antibacterial agent and therefore works well in dentistry since most dental diseases have a bacterial component (both decay and gum disease).
There are two ways to deliver ozone therapy in treatment: ozonated water and pure oxygen/ozone gas. Using the both in combination allows your dentist to treat oral infections with only oxygen and water!
This is possible because the infection/inflammation is positively charged (acidic) and ozone is negatively charged (basic). Therefore, the chemistry of the infection and/or inflammation attracts the ozone to the area.
Ozone Therapy treatment is safe and effective in the reduction of bacteria from tooth surfaces and around the gum line.
