One of the many holistic treatments offered at Naples Family Dentist is ozone dental therapy. This holistic treatment naturally eliminates bacteria, viruses, fungus and other pathogens using energized oxygen. Dr. Paul Mabe uses the oxidative power of ozone to restore oral function for a happy and healthy smile!
How Does Ozone Therapy Work?
The ozone gas works as a natural disinfectant to eliminate bacteria in the mouth. The negative charge of the ozone gas is drawn to areas of infection it is exposed to. Ozone gas neutralizes the oral acidity bacteria thrives on by altering the pH levels. This process not only kills the bacteria that is impacting the tooth, but it also alters the environment surrounding the infection to a place where bacteria is incapable of surviving. Ozone therapy is strong enough to kill the most resistant bacteria and pathogens but gentle enough to leave your healthy cells untouched in the process.
A Highlight of Our Ozone Therapy Services
Ozone gas is used to eradicate cavity-causing bacteria when applied to specific areas of oral decay. The ozone gas can maneuver the smallest and deepest of crevasses to eliminate pathogens on contact. This aids in the recalcification process to strengthen the damaged tooth and rejuvenate the tooth’s enamel.
Ozone gas penetrates bacteria trapped in areas of damaged enamel that leads to tooth sensitivity. This aids in reducing tooth sensitivity to hot or cold.
Ozone gas kills bacteria responsible for gingivitis and aids in the healing process of the gum tissue to end the damage of the infection.
Ozone gas can be used to treat teeth in need of a root canal to repair and reverse the infection. Also, this process can be used to desensitize sensitive root necks by plugging dentinal tubules, stopping the fluid exchange through the tubules. Resulting in termination of root sensitivity.
