Power of Ozone

Ozone gas is made from pure medical-grade Oxygen. Liquid disinfection lacks the penetrating qualities of Ozone. Ozone mimics a naturally occurring process in the human body. White blood cells fight bacteria by entering the bacteria creating an oxidative burst that punctures the bacterial cell wall and cripples the harmful organisms – Ozone does the same. As more ozone attacks the bacteria, thousands of holes are created in the cell wall. Within second the bacterial cell wall can no longer hold its shape. The cell wall collapses and the damaging cell dies. By saturating the tooth nerve the ozone penetrates into the micropores and safely kills virtually all harmful bacteria.

Ozone is considered by medical professionals as one of the safest therapies. Ozone disinfects 3000 times better than bleach chlorine or other disinfecting chemicals with virtually no side-effects. Ozone is so safe it has been approved by the FDA for the sanitization of meats, poultry, fruits and vegetables. Ozone is a molecule consisting of three atoms of oxygen. It is produced naturally by lightning and by various industrial processes. Ozone protects living organisms by surrounding the earth at altitudes of 50,000 to 100,000 feet. The ozone layer absorbs the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, thus allowing for survival of plant and animal life. Since ozone is a powerful oxidizer, it actually helps clean the atmosphere of these dangerous compounds.

Step 1 

Rinse and gargle with ozonated water. This is used to treat oral abscesses, periodontal problems, sore throats and ulcerations. Ozonated water also is used in our dental office for irrigation during gum treatment.

Step 2

Prevent tooth decay and maintain periodontal health with ozone. A custom tray is made that fits over the teeth and gums. Ozone gas is passed into the tray for a period of time and the treatment is repeated every few months.

Step 3

Prevent a root canal or extraction with ozone. An exposed nerve is washed with ozonated water followed by ozone gas that often prevents the nerve from dying, thus making a root canal unnecessary.

Step 4

Disinfect a tooth with ozone before performing a root canal or restoration. The tooth is composed of many tubules that may contain harmful bacteria. Ozonated water and gas can permeate these tubules and kill the bacteria.

Step 5

We use ozonated water instead of city water to protect patients from infection during dental procedures. All the water that spray out of the handpieces is ozonated fresh every day. This is done to enhance the outcome of treatment and decrease cross-contamination from patient to patient.
