Oxygen/Ozone

Oxygen/Ozone in Dentistry

 

EPSON MFP imageOne of the most complex and perplexing problems in dentistry today is infection control.  The oral cavity is a sea of microorganisms normally living in balance with the entire body.  If not treated properly, this can cause infection when doing procedures.  What if we had an agent that could treat and eliminate infections, in addition, support the surrounding healthy tissue without toxic side effect?  We do now with oxygen/ozone therapy for dentistry.

 

Used in small doses to:

 

  • Help kill bacteria and promote healing in gum disease treatment
  • Help kill bacteria and fungus in root canal treatment, improving results
  • Treat a damaged nerve in the tooth, saving the need for root canal therapy
  • To stop decay from progressing or increasing in size
