Oxygen / Ozone

These biologic reactions result in a positive therapeutic response and outcome. Oxygen/Ozone is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic.  With proper application these pathogenic life forms can be controlled and eliminated with no toxicity or side-effects.

Training in Ozone/oxygen therapy is necessary before one uses this therapy in practice. Recently, the Academy of General Dentistry assigned a subject code for dentist to learn about ozone in dentistry.

Clinical applications are:

  • Ozonated water for rinsing, irrigation and topical application 
  • Ozonated olive oil for topical application
  • Oxygen/Ozone gas for infusion and insufflation to help resolve infections
Ozone Applications in Dentistry

Oxygen = O2 ... or ... 2 molecules of oxygen
Ozone = O3 ... or ... 3 molecules of oxygen

Oxygen/Ozone Therapy in Dentistry offers a non-surgical intervention for the treatment of osteonecrosis, infection, and inflammation of the head, neck, and associated structures. Ozone is a naturally occurring oxidant and when exposed to biologic systems induce multiple biologic reactions.
