Ozone Therapy: What can this super oxygen do for you?
Article by BioDentist.com
Oxygen is O2, and Ozone is O3. Ozone is an energized form of oxygen, and a godsend in dentistry. It provides a source of “reactive” extra free molecule of oxygen with its extra electron that kills the bad bacteria, fungus, and viruses in the mouth. It does not burn like peroxide, thus helping the problem site with a big dose of oxygen. That’s very good news!!
All dental infections are acidic and anaerobic, or lacking oxygen. Adding oxygen completely changes the environment, making it much more difficult for infection to exist. Ozone therapy uses the elemental form of oxygen as a powerful cleaner/oxidizer, drastically minimizing the chance of a secondary infection spreading from the mouth into the body.
How is Ozone Therapy used in biological dentistry?
- During fillings – ozone water kills bugs on contact, and dramatically reduces post-operative pain and sensitivity by adding oxygen to the inside of the tooth.
- During cleanings – ozone saline water is flushed below the gum line. Cleanings done this way are safer and more comfortable.
- During extractions – ozone saline water minimizes the rapid release of bacteria and their toxins when a tooth is pulled. Combined with Intravenous Vitamin C, surgical procedures done this way are much safer and more comfortable.
Ozone therapy has been utilized and extensively studied for many decades altogether. Its effects are proven, consistent and with minimal side effects. Its effects are durable over time and ozone treatment is fully compatible with any treatment. Although the benefits of Ozone therapy are clear and proven, there is not enough evidence to suggest that the usage of ozone therapy as alternative medicine has real advantages over or should replace the available conventional treatment.
