What is Ozone Therapy?
When you think of the term ozone, you probably think of the air and about the earth’s ozone layer. Ozone is actually a naturally occurring gas which medical professionals are finding a litany of uses for. When this charged form of oxygen is introduced into the body, wonderful things begin to happen including improved blood flow, a stimulation of the body’s immune defenses and quicker healing. When ozone is applied, a transient oxidative burst occurs. It is harmless to the patient, but effectively and quickly kills many microorganisms which could be causing infections including:
Ozone also kills parasitic protozoa, which are known to cause dental issues such as tooth decay, periodontal disease and other dental pains. Ozone therapy really opens the door to a whole new world of dental care that is holistic and completely effective.
Ozone Therapy vs. Bacteria
As mentioned, ozone therapy is incredibly efficient at fighting and killing gum and tooth decay causing bacteria. Holistic dentists who employ this method of dental therapy believe it to be even more effective than fluoride in the fight against bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and viruses. Ozone therapy achieves this through its ability to stimulate the circulation of blood as well as the immune system. Ozone therapy is being used in place of more traditional methods which required the scraping of teeth or the use of antibiotics. Ozone therapy is also amazingly effective for post-operation because of its ability to disinfect the area where work was performed making it much less vulnerable to infection.
Ozone Therapy and Gum Health
Ozone therapy is beloved by holistic dentists not only for its ability to ward off bacteria, but because it also promotes a natural healing of the body. Holistic dentists can take ozonated water and apply it below the gumline to stimulate a natural healing of the gum and supporting tissues. The delivery of oxygen to gum tissue and increased blood circulation are also results of this therapy. It is truly a jump start to your immune system!
