We don’t mess around when it comes to staying on top of all of the latest advancements in dentistry, specifically when it comes to practicing holistic and biological dentistry in Wilmington. One of the treatments that set us apart is Ozone Therapy. We’ve talked about it before, but we wanted to share how effective and easy it can be to help rid your mouth of unwanted bacteria or infection.

I’ve Heard About Ozone Therapy Before: What is It?

While it might seem like Ozone Therapy is some new, ground-breaking thing, the truth is, it’s been around for about a hundred years. However, it wasn’t until recently that it was applied to dentistry, and it’s truly life-changing for some patients. It’s another tool we use to:

  • Heal and prevent mouth infections
  • Improve your oral and overall health
  • Give your body tools to help itself

Ozone Therapy has antibacterial properties that cause a biological process to occur throughout your mouth. Some patients say Ozone has helped diminish their TMJ or jaw pain and tooth sensitivity. You’ll be clean and free from decay or infections that lead to larger health issues.

Using Ozone Therapy to Benefit You and Your Smile

There are so many reasons why more dentists see the true value in offering something like Ozone Therapy to patients. It can:

  • Help to stop tooth decay
  • Treat gum disease
  • Keep your body free from harmful chemicals
  • Improve blood circulation and oxygen delivery
  • Enhance general metabolism through improved oxygen delivery
  • Activate your immune system
  • Enhance the release of growth factors
  • Activate systems that protect your neuronal integrity
  • Induce a feeling of overall wellness
  • Stimulate your neuroendocrine system

One of the other reasons why Ozone Therapy is so great is that it can help improve your immune system, something that’s essential to all of us these days. Since this treatment has been used for so many years, it’s recently regained popularity as bacteria become more and more antibiotic-resistant. It is conservative, painless, minimally invasive, and can dramatically lessen treatment time.
