What is ozone?
Ozone is a type of oxygen that has therapeutic benefits. When it is administered by a dental professional with the right equipment, it can provide effective, conservative solutions for patients at A Plus Dentistry. Ozone continues to be studied as a therapy that provides amazing benefits to patients who are having dental work done and is highly recommended by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.
What are the benefits of ozone therapy and how does it work?
Ozone therapy has been shown to be effective for treating infections and providing faster recovery from many common dental procedures. Ozone is administered to the patient as either a liquid or a gas to stimulate the body’s natural immune responses and increase the blood flow to the oral cavity. The reaction results in the destruction of disease-causing pathogens and harmful microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria. When used by a dentist, it can be administered as a natural therapy to conditions such as periodontal disease, dental caries, and even infection inside the tooth that often results in the need for root canal therapy (endodontic treatment).
Can ozone therapy be combined with other treatments?
Yes. Ozone therapy is often combined with other treatments to provide optimum results. It can be great to add to certain procedures to encourage faster recovery. Ozone can be a great way to ensure the health and wellness of the oral cavity in addition to other services provided by our team of professionals.
