The oral cavity is a sea of microorganisms normally living in balance with the entire human body.
However, under certain conditions, pathogenic or “disease causing” microorganisms can become the dominant life forms, thus creating an infection. The healthy and unhealthy microorganisms start living in plaque, also called biofilm, which supports a mixed type infection made up of bacteria, viruses, fungi and even parasites.
When ozone is introduced into this living system, it eliminates the infection and supports the surrounding healthy tissue without toxic side effects. Dental ozone therapy also induces a multitude of natural biochemical and physiologic reactions, which include better blood flow, enhanced immune response, and a more rapid healing response.
Dental oxygen/ozone therapy is useful in the following applications:
Kills bacteria that cause decay.
Kills bacteria that cause periodontal disease.
Vasodilator, so increases blood flow to affected area, allowing for increase in availability of oxygen.
Non-toxic wound healing
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.
You can’t be allergic to Oxygen/Ozone. Ozone is just an energized form of oxygen. Additionally, ozone systems are ecologically safe.
