Infective bacteria and microorganisms are unable to defend themselves against the oxidative burst that is generated when ozone therapy is introduced into the living system. Therefore when we use this form of therapy, the organisms get stressed and die, allowing ozone to be used to disinfect treated areas safely and efficiently. As an added bonus, the effect of the burst also improves blood flow, increase your immune responses, and encourages healing to happen at a faster rate.
Ozone therapy is used for treating periodontal disease, as well as tooth whitening, and minimizing sensitivity in the teeth. It can also be used to improve the healing process of cavitations or abscesses. Children can particularly benefit from this form of treatment, as it does not involve much, if any drilling.
