What is Ozone Therapy at Denver Dentistry?
Ozone is a natural antibiotic that kills bad bacteria and leaves healthy bacteria to continue doing its job. Among the many applications, Ozone application has become our preferred technique to:
- Reduce if not eliminate tooth sensitivity
- Disinfect tooth preparations after decay removal
- Sterilize infected teeth during root canal therapy
- Improve circulation in the jaw muscles
- Inactivate or kill viruses, bacteria and fungi
How Ozone Therapy Can Help Teeth
Ozone is safely used in the gaseous form, or as ozonated water to irrigate sockets after a tooth has to be removed. Necrotic and abscessed teeth requiring root canal therapy can be safely disinfected with ozone gas insufflation into the canal spaces prior to sealing them. Decayed teeth are treated with ozone gas as well prior to final tooth restoration.
The benefits of ozonation of teeth is to reduce sensitivity of the tooth after decay removal and restoration, sterilization of the ‘infected’ tooth so a new cavity is less likely to begin again, and to prevent any residual bacteria from causing any further pulpal disease, inflammation, or infection.
