Periodontal Disease: Ozone can be used to help treat periodontal disease by using ozonated water flushed below the gum line and/or ozone gas infiltrated into the gum tissue and supporting tissues. Ozone not only kills bacteria, cells with viruses, and parasites it has an anti-inflammatory effect as well.

Root Canal Prevention: If decay is very close to the nerve, ozone gas can be used to sterilize the dentinal tubules to try to reduce the likelihood of the tooth needing a root canal in the future.

Root Canal Sterilization: Ozone is used in all forms during root canal treatment to kill bacteria, sterilize the canal system and to stimulate faster healing. As a gas, ozone can get to places traditional liquids can’t because the gas can permeate the tiny tubules that cannot otherwise be accessed, thereby getting a truly sterile, bacteria-free root canal system before sealing the canals.

Sterilization of Water: All water used for the treatment of patients is sterilized with water and replaced daily. This water also helps to prevent any bacteria from growing in the systems so that patient water is clean for patients.

Sensitivity: Because ozone can harden compromised tooth structure, flooding a sensitive area or tooth with ozone gas can effectively eliminate sensitivity. We have successfully addressed many patients’ sensitivity issues with ozone therapy.

Safety: Ozone does not have any contraindications with other medications, therefore cross-reactions are not a concern at all. You cannot be allergic to ozone, because you cannot be allergic to oxygen.
