Neutralize Oral Disease
At Lynn Dental Care, we have invested in a state-of-the-art procedure that has proven to be effective at eliminating oral bacteria – ozone therapy. Our patients seek ozone therapy when they have been affected by bacteria from oral disease. Oral disease is caused by bacteria that has infected the gum tissue or tooth enamel within your mouth. In many cases, your body may require assistance to cleanse this bacteria, otherwise the infection can easily return.
Ozone therapy is successful because disease pathogens do not have antioxidants, which allow ozone molecules to attack and destroy oral bacteria. Ozone therapy has been able to neutralize 63 different bacteria, 15 viruses, 25 fungi and mold spores, and 13 fungal pathogens, which is why our periodontist, Dr. Brock Lynn, has chosen to invest in this modern technology.
The Uses of Ozone Therapy
Ozone therapy is effective for a variety of procedures, but the most common periodontal treatments we use it for are restorative care and root canal treatment. Ozone therapy can be used to reduce and sterilize teeth and gums both before and immediately after periodontal treatments. An ozonated oil can also be used for periodontal maintenance thanks to its bacterial-killing ability.
We can even use ozone therapy to prevent bacteria from infecting gum or bone tissue that surround a dental implant. Pre-procedural rinsing is carefully performed to reduce bacterial loads. Specifically, ozone water is useful for killing bacteria and other pathogenic microorganisms by rapidly rupturing cell membranes.
After root canal treatment, we can disinfect the tooth with ozone therapy, but a filling will still need to be placed to restore the structure of the tooth. If amalgam fillings were previously placed, we can use our SMART technique, or our Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique. The purpose of this procedure is to drill out amalgam fillings, avoiding further harmful exposure to mercury.
Safely and Gently Eliminate Bacteria
Ozone therapy at Lynn Dental Care is a safe way to eliminate bacteria and prevent it from returning to the specific treatment areas in your mouth. Since harmful bacteria does not contain protective elements in its cells, ozone therapy can destroy them without harming healthy tissue. If you are interested in receiving ozone therapy for your periodontal or dental care, schedule a consultation with our dental team. We can discuss if this would be a safe and effective choice for your health.
