Ozone gas is used to treat the periodontal pockets surrounding each tooth. These pockets are natural and require bacterial disruption to maintain and support healthy tissue necessary for retaining the teeth for long life.
Decay Removal and Restoration:
Once the decayed tooth structure is removed through conventional dentistry techniques, ozone gas is applied to the cavity preparation. The ozone will then penetrate the dentin tubules killing bacteria left in the smear layer and surrounding tissues. A dental restoration can now be placed with a higher success rate without adverse post-operative acuteness.
Teeth requiring removal from the oral cavity are suffering from one form or another of dental disease. Many of the surrounding structures and tissues are negatively affected by the disease process and tooth removal. It is essential to treat the entirety of the condition to heal adequately. Ozone water delivered to the extraction site supports the body’s natural ability to heal the void and return to normal function.
This simplex symptom plaguing the majority of our population is often treated with fluoridated pastes and mouth rinses. A better understanding of the condition may lead to a quick fix. Exposed dentin is painful when experiencing fluctuation felt by air, water, and thermal changes. Inevitably the exposed dentin is now susceptible to the 20 billion microbes roaming the oral cavity; the bacteria present will penetrate the tubules causing an inflammatory response. When ozone gas is slowly filtrated over the area, the bacteria will deplete, and re-mineralization will take effect to repair and protect the once exposed dentin tubules. Often relief is noticed with minutes of treatment.
