Biologic dentists, such as Dr. Mohammed Imam and Dr. Shafiulla Khan at the Maine Center for Dental Medicine in Skowhegan, ME, continuously push themselves to remain on the cutting edge of dentistry by offering natural, non-invasive treatments to patients. One such method biologic dentists is ozone dental therapy. Not every dentist utilizes this beneficial dental practice, so if you have ever found yourself wondering “Gee, I wonder where I can find ozone dental therapy near me”, then look no further than Dr. Mohammed Imam and Dr. Shafiulla Khan.
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 biologic and completely effective.
As mentioned, ozone therapy is incredibly efficient at fighting and killing gum and tooth decay causing bacteria. Biologic 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 is beloved by biologic dentists not only for its ability to ward off bacteria, but because it also promotes a natural healing of the body. Biologic 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!
Dental anxiety brought about by the thought of invasive treatments involving scraping and prodding is a significant issue worldwide that causes many individuals to delay dental treatment or neglect it altogether. Another wonderful aspect of ozone therapy is that it is completely non-invasive in its ability to prevent cavities and control plaque. With ozone therapy, there really is nothing to fear!
