What is the purpose of ozone therapy?The use of ozone in dental therapy is a concept that is gradually spreading in the field of dentistry. It is one which Cleveland Center for Integrative Dentistry chooses to implement as a holistic dental practice. Ozone is created by passing oxygen through a special generator to produce ozone. This ozone is introduced into the oral environment and dental procedures to eliminate unwanted and unhealthy substances that are present. This is achieved based on the principles of biology and due to the negative charge of ozone. As a result, the ozone is attracted to the positive charge of many bad cells such as bacteria, viruses, and even cancer cells. The ozone penetrates the membranes of these harmful cells, which destroys them.
Ozone therapy provides yet another helpful tool to help combat bacteria and infection in order to achieve healthy outcomes. Due to the diverse microorganisms that are present in the mouth, it can be difficult to eradicate them using only medications. In fact, many drugs seem to have become less effective over the years, perhaps due to the development of resistance to treatment in the organisms present.
Ozone is useful when introduced into many dental situations. It is safe and effective and produces no harmful side effects. Procedures where it may be helpful include:
- Tooth extractions
- Dental fillings
- Periodontal treatments
Ozone integrates well into holistic guidelines. When added to dental procedures in order to assist in the healing process, the body can readily accept it without complications. We seek to provide elements that will contribute to the total wellbeing of a patient, rather than just to provide a quick-fix. In this way and others, we are more than alert to the overall impacts from treatment.
