Ozone dental Treatment

Ozone treatment dentist

Ozone dental treatment is a procedure aimed at optimizing oral flora and thereby improving oral health.

Ozone is a gaseous molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms (O3). Its main property lies in its effective disinfectant effect.

Ozone holds significant value in Biological Dentistry. It can be effectively applied in various pathological processes such as cavities or periodontitis. Additionally, in dental surgery, ozone treatment can help prevent infections and complications.

Dental Ozone Therapy for Cavities

Cavities in which there is softening of the tooth but no penetration of the tooth surface can be treated with ozone. Ozone has the ability to penetrate deep into the carious tooth structure and kill the bacteria present. The ozone gas eliminates the cavity bacteria and initiates the hardening/remineralization process. As a result, a dark but hard tooth discoloration remains, which is not pathological. It can be likened to a kind of scar on the tooth.

Dental Ozone Treatment for Gum Inflammation and Periodontitis

Ozone can also penetrate deep into the gum pockets during gum inflammation and periodontitis, eliminating problematic bacteria. Consequently, inflammation of the periodontal apparatus can regenerate, leading to a reduction in gum bleeding and bad breath.

The improvement can be self-perceived by the patient and can also be demonstrated through periodontitis diagnostics.

Ozone in Dental Surgery

During oral cavity surgeries, wounds can be effectively disinfected with ozone, leading to improved wound healing and fewer postoperative complications.

The small, oxygen-containing molecules penetrate deep into the wound area, exhibiting various effects:

  • Disinfection of the wound. Anaerobic, pathological bacteria, viruses, and fungi are eliminated, significantly reducing the likelihood of postoperative wound infection.
  • Ozone breaks down into oxygen in the tissue, enhancing the oxygen supply to the surrounding tissue.
  • Blood circulation in the wound region improves, allowing more stem cells and essential building blocks to reach the surgical area.

To prevent postoperative complications, ozone can be very effectively combined with the application of A-PRF (Advanced Platelet-Rich Fibrin).

Surgical Procedures recommended for Ozone Application:

While ozone is generally recommended for all oral surgeries, there are specific procedures where it is particularly beneficial:
