What is ozone therapy?
Ozone therapy is a safe, noninvasive treatment the team at Ueno Center Dental Specialists uses to improve oral health. Ozone is a gas that has three oxygen molecules. Your body needs oxygen to fight off infections and heal wounds.
Dental ozone therapy works by inactivating harmful germs in the mouth, increasing the production of red blood cells, improving oxygen delivery to the cells to stimulate healing, and boosting the production of the germ-fighting cells that your immune system makes.
What can ozone therapy treat?
The Ueno Center Dental Specialists team uses ozone therapy to maintain and improve oral health. The team may recommend the noninvasive therapy to:
Maintain oral health
Routine dental exams and cleanings are essential for maintaining good oral health. Dental ozone therapy is a safe, noninvasive treatment that supports the health of your teeth and gums by killing cavity-causing bacteria.
Treat bacterial infections
The Ueno Center Dental Specialists team uses ozone therapy to treat bacterial infections that lead to cavities and gum disease. They also provide ozone therapy to assist in managing mild-to-moderate tooth decay.
If you have sensitive teeth, the team may recommend dental ozone therapy to improve your tolerance to hot and cold food and drinks.
Reduce the risk of infection
Ueno Center Dental Specialists may also use ozone therapy following periodontal treatments like a root canal or dental implants. The painless treatment speeds up healing and may reduce your risk of infection.
Brighten your smile
Ozone therapy whitens your teeth by delivering oxygen under the enamel, similar to the action of teeth whitening agents.
Am I a candidate for ozone therapy?
Schedule a consultation with the team at Ueno Center Dental Specialists to see if you’re a candidate for ozone therapy. The team may recommend the noninvasive, painless therapy to improve oral health, treat cavities or gum disease, or prevent problems following periodontal treatments.
The team may also consider you a candidate for ozone therapy if you need oral health care, but your dental anxiety keeps you from seeing the dentist. Ozone therapy may stop tooth decay, strengthen your teeth, and serve as the first step toward improving oral health.
