Ozone Therapy

OR CALL : (516) 441-2214

Ozone is an energized form of oxygen. It is naturally formed by the sun and lightening in storms. When introduced into the living system, ozone creates what is called a “transient oxidative burst.” The infective microorganisms have no natural defense against this reaction, and as a result, are overstressed and die. Thus, ozone disinfects the treated area safely and effectively.  In addition, this “oxidative burst” induces various natural biochemical and physiological reactions that promote improved blood flow, an enhanced immune response, and a more rapid healing response. 

Staying within the accepted standard of care, with proper application, ozone can enhance outcomes in all aspects of dentistry. For example, periodontal disease is a chronic gum and bone infection. By utilizing different application forms of oxygen/ozone such as ozonated water, ozonated oils and placing oxygen/ozone directly into the infected gum pockets, periodontal disease can be arrested without the use of pharmaceutical drugs and the associated side effects. Another area of concern is infected root canals. Ozone therapy sterilizes all aspects of the tooth, and can penetrate into the smallest canals and tubules of the tooth. This allows for a truly biologic root canal and thus retention of your natural teeth. Likewise, tooth decay or caries, which is really a “tooth infection” can be arrested almost immediately upon proper exposure to oxygen/ozone therapy. This procedure is especially useful when treating children as minimal to no drilling of the tooth is necessary.
