Ozone Therapy in Houston, TX
The mouth is a miniature ecosystem of vast amounts of bacteria that live in harmony with the human body’s natural balances. However, some microorganisms can increase in population and raise the potential for infection. Ozone therapy in dentistry allows treatment of infections without any toxicity, side effects or allergies.
How Ozone Therapy Works
Ozone (O3) is an energized form of Oxygen (O2) that has impressive antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. When introduced to the oral cavity by a qualified dentist, it causes an “oxidative burst” within the microbes that populate the mouth, effectively eliminating them. The benefit of this is that many different kinds of bacteria, fungi and viruses can be dealt with – without the need for pharmaceutical drugs and their associated side effects.
Is Ozone Therapy Safe?
Ozone gas is naturally present in the earth’s atmosphere, and ozone therapy has been recognized to be safe and effective by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT.) Our staff and dentists are trained in the proper administration of ozone for dental use, and our patients’ safety is our first priority.
We can use many different forms of ozone for different applications, including ozonated oils, ozonated water, and ozone gas.
Benefits of Ozone Therapy
Ozone therapy promotes increased blood flow and stimulates your body’s natural immune system response. This provokes a more rapid healing state within the body, which is essential to recover from oral diseases and return the mouth to a healthy state. Ozone can enhance the outcome for many conditions, including:
- Tooth Abscess
- Periodontal Disease
- Dental Cavities
- Infected Root Canals
