Creating Beautiful Smiles

Oxygen – Ozone

Treatment for small areas of tooth decay can at times be invasive, uncomfortable, and nerve-wracking enough to prevent many individuals from seeking help. If small areas of decay are detected early, ozone therapy can be used to stop the active decay from spreading in the tooth. Since ozone therapy is very easy to apply, it helps reduce the fear of dental procedures. When applied to the teeth, ozone gas disrupts and destroys the bacterial growth that causes decay and periodontal disease. As a gas, ozone can reach places in the mouth that liquids cannot, allowing for a more comprehensive, minimally invasive tooth decay treatment.

Benefits of Oxygen-Ozone

Minimally Invasive Treatments

Minimally Invasive Treatments

While beneficial for all patients, ozone is especially useful for children, nervous individuals, or elderly patients with medical issues, as it allows for minimally invasive treatment for small areas of decay. With ozone, there is less need for drilling, which allows for a more comfortable procedure.

Less Postoperative Pain

Less Postoperative Pain

Postoperative discomfort can be common after dental procedures such as fillings or crowns. Ozone can be applied during these procedures to reduce the chances of bacterial infection, thus reducing the likelihood of postoperative pain.

Stronger Teeth

Stronger Teeth

Ozone gas can stop early-detected decay on teeth. After ozone is used, a calcium solution is applied to the tooth. This calcium solution helps strengthen teeth in areas weakened by decay. Ozone treatment can also help reduce sensitivity in both the exposed tooth and the tooth root.

What Can Oxygen-Ozone Help With?

Cavity Prevention

Ozone gas kills decay-causing bacteria that forms over the surfaces of the teeth, between the teeth, and below the gum line. This treatment can replace conventional drilling and fillings for minor decay and dental caries, or it can be used to promote comfort during traditional cavity treatment.

Periodontal Disease

When ozone gas is applied to and absorbed by the tissues below the gum line, it kills bacterial colonies. Ozone gas can be used as a preventative treatment for periodontal disease.

Root Canal Treatment

Ozone therapy can be used to ease comfort and enhance safety for a root canal. Root canal ozone application kills bacteria in the canal system during the surgery to greatly reduce the bacteria in the canal before the root canal is sealed and completed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the risks and side effects of ozone?
A. Since ozone is a form of oxygen, there is no chance of an allergic reaction. In all studies, there have been no adverse side effects reported. This treatment is simple, safe, and often eliminates the need for potentially toxic restorative material.
What is ozone?
A. Ozone is a derivative of oxygen that contains three atoms of oxygen per molecule instead of two. This extra atom allows the gas to disrupt and obliterate bacterial colonies in the mouth while promoting the re-mineralization of the teeth.
Is ozone appropriate for all patients?
A. Ozone is beneficial for all patients. There is no age limit for ozone treatment, and if applied correctly, it can often postpone or eliminate the need for more invasive procedures.
Does insurance cover ozone?
A. Ozone therapy is considered to be an elective treatment and is not usually covered by insurance. Check with your insurance provider to see if you have coverage.
