COVID 19 UPDATE
We will be closed for the next 2 weeks. We are still taking calls for emergencies so feel free to call us with any concerns or issues that may arise.
Dentistry is varying with induction of modern science to practice dentistry. The Ozone therapy has been more beneficial than present conventional therapeutic modalities that follow a minimally invasive and conservative application to dental treatments.
Treating patients with ozone therapy lessens the treatments time with an immense deal of variation and it eradicates the bacterial count more specifically. The treatment is painless and increases the patient's tolerability and fulfillment with minimal adverse effects.
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 effect and no toxic byproduct. There are two ways to deliver ozone treatment; ozonated water and pure oxygen/ozone gas. It is a powerful antibacterial agent and therefore works well in dentistry since the most dental disease has a bacterial component (both decay and gum disease).
Using the two agents in combination allows the Dentist to aid in the treatment of 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 is safe and effective in the reduction of bacteria from tooth surfaces or around the gum line.
At your next visit, ask Dr. Ferzli or your hygienist how Dental Ozone may benefit your oral health. Treatment and fees will be specific to your individual needs.
The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) has reviewed and accepted Oxygen/Ozone in Dentistry as scientifically valid.
In conjunction with preventative measures and consistent use of fluoride, it can be a viable solution for early caries in children and other needle-phobic patients. However, the method is best used for specialized dentistry to curb the spread of infection and bacteria after the use of traditional treatments.
