I know, I know… here comes the ozone again! I’ve explained how we use ozone in our dentistry in previous posts. After all this talk of nasty acid-making bacteria wreaking havoc on teeth, it’s essential — for my ozone-using practice in particular — to bring the greatness of O3 into the picture!
Ozone eliminates bacteria, and is, therefore, the perfect solution to cleaning an infected tooth. What’s even better is that ozone treatment will just come in the form of ozonated water or an ozone gas. Continual application to the surgical site promotes impossibly thorough sterility, while even speeding up the process and recovery. Ozone therapy does not cause negative side effects or allergic reactions in patients, and allows the natural immune system to fight off infection.
Using ozone for cavity treatment makes the filling or restoring process much easier and smoother. Guaranteeing sterility to avoid worse problems later is crucial during any serious dental work, and ozone does the job well.
