Oral disease is caused by bacteria that has infected the gum tissue or tooth enamel within your mouth. In many instances, your body may not be able to cleanse these oral infections by itself or the infection can easily return.
At Lynn Dental Care, we have invested in a state-of-the-art procedure that has been proven to be effective at eliminating oral bacteria—ozone therapy. Ozone therapy in North Dallas, TX, has proven to be successful because disease pathogens do not have anti-oxidants, which allows ozone molecules to attack and destroy oral bacteria. Ozone therapy has found to be able to neutralize 63 different bacteria, 15 viruses, 25 fungi and mold spores as well as 13 fungal pathogens, which is why our periodontist, Dr. Brock Lynn, has chosen to invest in this modern technology.
Ozone therapy is effective for a variety of procedures, but the most common periodontal treatments we use it for include restorative care and root canal treatment. Ozone can be used to reduce sensitive teeth and sterilize teeth and gums prior to or immediately after periodontal treatments have been performed. In some cases, we can even use ozone to prevent bacteria from infecting gum or bone tissue that surround a dental implant. 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.
Ozone therapy in North Dallas, TX, is a safe way to eliminate and prevent the return of bacteria to your mouth and specific treatment areas. Since harmful bacterial does not contain protective elements in their cells, ozone is able to 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 team. Our dental team can discuss if this would be a safe addition to your dental treatments.
