There are many uses for oxygen/ozone therapy in dentistry, including the treatment of gum disease. Bacteria can hide in the deep pockets around the tooth, which is an impossible area to reach with a toothbrush. The infective microorganisms have no natural defense when the ozone/oxygen is introduced. Applied oxygen functions as an antimicrobial agent to disinfect the treated area, and can facilitate better blood flow, enhanced immune response, and more rapid healing. Oxygen/ozone can be applied in a range of forms, including ozonated water, ozonated oils, or by placing oxygen/ozone directly into the infected gum pockets. Oxygen/ozone therapy offers treatment for gum disease without the use of pharmaceutical drugs and their associated side effects.
