As you may already know, sterilization is crucial when it comes to teeth cleaning and root canal treatment. However, even the best oral care specialist and hygienist cannot guarantee 100% sterilization. Most traditional dental clinics use a standard sterilization process that involves various chemical solutions in order to remove bacteria. Chlorine, despite being used in many households as a disinfectant, is broadly used by many dentists. Chlorine is a strong antiseptic, but it still cannot guarantee even 50% of bacteria removal.
Therefore, our team prefers dental ozone therapy as one of the most effective oral treatment options used in the sterilization process. Adding ozone water or gas can kill 99% of bacteria. At Advanced Wellness Centre, we represent holistic dentistry and support natural practices. Here is a list of the wonderful benefits of dental ozone therapy and the reasons why we recommend it to our clients.
What is Ozone Dental Therapy?
Ozone contains three atoms of oxygen (O3), and it is the second most powerful sterilant in the world. It can be used to destroy bacteria and viruses. Any bacteria that comes in contact with ozone is completely destroyed by oxidation. Ozone has unique capabilities of killing any bad bacteria in our bodies without producing any side effects. It is not toxic for body cells, therefore, the application of Ozone in treatments and therapy is natural and effective.
Some dentists have special equipment for creating medical Ozone. Water gets purified with Ozone and then this purified water is used by hygienists for gum cleaning. Ozone gas is even more effective – not only does it kill the bacteria in the cavity, but it also alters the environment, so that more bacteria is unable to flourish.
Main benefits of Ozone Dental Therapy
Ozone dental therapy is also highly efficient in root canal treatments. Once cleaned, the root canal gets disinfected with ozone gas or water, in order to remove bacteria. It is also highly effective when used as a method of disinfection after a tooth extraction. Additionally, Ozone has the ability to stimulate blood circulation and to treat periodontal disease. In fact, At Advanced Wellness Centre, we include Ozone Gum Irritation treatment in many of our services.
There are many other benefits of this therapy:
- May treat minor to medium tooth decay
- No pain or discomfort during treatment
- Sufficiently prolongs the life of teeth
- Helps prevent the need to undergo a root canal treatment
- Promotes faster healing
- Safe and effective with children
- Activates the immune system
How Ozone Therapy works
When we have to treat deep cavities, the application of Ozone significantly reduces the spread of infections and inflammation in the root canal. It stops bacteria from spreading into the pulp and as a result, the tooth stays alive. Ozone neutralizes oral acidity thus altering pH levels, so damaging oral bacteria that thrive in such acidic conditions is eradicated. When it comes to periodontal disease treatment, Ozone water is flushed below the gum line and/or ozone gas infiltrates into the gum tissue and as a result it supports tissue restoration, leading to a healthier mouth and teeth.
There are many medical centers whereby Ozone is broadly used in treatments of various diseases such as asthma, diabetes, allergies, cancer and immune disorder. When Ozone is a contributing factor in treatment, it leads our bodies to a speedy recovery and stronger health.
Here at Advanced Dental Wellness Centre, we have always been committed to providing our patients with new and innovative ways to manage oral and dental health. Our methods include a more natural and holistic approach. Ozone dental therapy is just one of the holistic treatments we offer to our patients. Our holistic team uses a combination of natural treatments and safe dental materials, including ozone dental therapy.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon as our goal is not only to improve your oral health but also your body’s overall wellbeing.
