When it comes to treating dental decay and infection, ozone therapy is in a field of its own. This revolutionary alternative and biocompatible treatment eradicates isolated pockets of bacteria which cannot be removed with conventional dental tools. And, the DOU120 Dental Ozone System available at the Assure A Smile office promotes advanced healing during a variety of dental procedures, such as root canals, gum disease treatment and cavity restorations.
As one of the most innovative ways to fight various oral health conditions, ozone therapy has been proven more beneficial than other minimally invasive therapies.¹ Medical ozone (O3) has been used for over 150 years to fight infection, treat disease and disinfect drinking water.²
How it Works
Ozone therapy is delivered in liquid or gas form, contingent upon the treatment at hand. Since gas and liquid can flow freely through tight tubules and canals, ozone molecules dive deep below the gum line to fight subsurface infections. Unlike mechanical cleaning tools, ozone can penetrate both hard and soft tissues inside the oral cavity. Each particle contains a negative charge which attaches to positive free radicals. Because of their opposite properties, bacteria and infections are effectively neutralized.
Aside from its application to dentistry, ozone helps promote total body wellbeing. Not only does ozone kill bacteria and viruses on site, but it increases the amount of oxygen delivered to cells, building elasticity for easy blood vessel flow. In addition, ozone treatments strengthen immune systems by regulating over activity due to common autoimmune disorders and stimulating under activity from chronic infections. Ozone also acts as a detoxifier across the entire system. Many holistic physicians use transdermal ozone therapy to help patients sweat out contaminants.
