Ozone therapy has been used in medicine to treat infections and promote healing for over 100 years. In dentistry, the antibacterial properties of ozone are used to treat a number or oral health problems, including:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- TMD symptoms
- Tooth sensitivity
- Oral infections
Ozone therapy is non-toxic, completely natural, and perfectly safe. It uses ozone molecules (O3) in gas, oil or liquid form to disinfect dental tissues and stop infections from spreading. Additionally, patients report less TMJ pain and reduced tooth sensitivity after undergoing ozone therapy.
With so many applications, ozone therapy is one of the most versatile tools we have to help our patients restore their oral health. If you have questions about ozone therapy and how it might benefit you, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Patel.
