Naturally existing in our environment, ozone interacts with sunlight to protect us from harmful UV radiation. In recent years ozone has gained popularity in health industry for its many benefits. In dentistry, ozone can help with disinfection and healing of both hard and soft tissues during the treatment of variety of different procedures.
The action created by ozone is referred to as a “transient oxidative burst.” Since the harmful microorganisms bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites etc have no natural way to defend against such reaction, they become overstressed and die. This property of ozone allows us to eliminate or reduce the need of utilizing different medications to kill of different types of macroorganisms when treating acute or chronical conditions.
Aside from its anti-microbial property, ozone also provide multiple different benefits to our body at the site of administration.
1. Non invasive: does not require drilling, cutting or removing of any hard or soft tissues
2. Anti-inflammatory: Ozone Gas has anti-inflammatory properties so can reduce pain and swelling.
3. Stimulates Healing: Ozone therapy stimulates the body's natural healing processes by increasing blood flow and oxygenation to the treated area.
