Aqueous Ozone Therapy

Aqueous ozone therapy is an emerging treatment used to fight a variety of dental issues, such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and root canals. It harnesses the natural power of ozone in water to eliminate bacteria, viruses, and fungi, promoting faster healing and reducing the risk of infections.

Ozone dental treatment is a natural, noninvasive therapy for many common dental problems. It uses ozonated water to kill microorganisms in the mouth safely. Ozone is a potent oxidant that is antimicrobial and disinfectant.

Unlike many traditional treatments, ozone therapy is noninvasive and painless. Your teeth and gums don’t need to be numbed to use it, and it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals that can negatively affect the immune system. Ozone is a highly effective, gentle way to care for teeth and gums. During treatment, the oxygen atoms in ozone interact with the pathogens that cause cavities and periodontal disease. The oxygen oxidizes and kills the harmful microbes in the mouth and helps break down the plaque biofilms that lead to tooth decay.

One strength of ozone treatment is that it doesn’t damage healthy tissues. Our cells have antioxidants and free radical scavengers that fight the oxidative effects of ozone. Bacteria and other pathogens don’t have enough of these molecules, so the ozone kills them.

Ozone For Gum Disease

Ozone is effective in treating periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease is usually caused by a buildup of plaque and bacteria due to insufficient brushing and flossing habits. As the bacteria multiply, they irritate the gums, causing inflammation. Eventually, the bacteria can cause a gap to form between your gums and teeth, called a periodontal pocket. If left untreated, abscesses can form, and tooth loss may follow. Ozone treatments help destroy the bacteria that cause inflammation and gum disease. By bathing the gums in ozone, dentists eliminate the pathogens behind gum disease, ensuring that the gums and mouth stay healthy.

  • What are the benefits of ozone treatment?

    The strength of the ozone used in dental treatments depends on the treatment and equipment used. Ozonated water usually contains around 4 mg/L of ozone.
