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.
