Your Wilmington biological and holistic family dentist would like to share with you some of the benefits to you and your smile that come with having dental ozone treatment with us. You might be wondering what it is and how ozone works, so let’s dive right in and take a deeper look into this groundbreaking treatment we have to offer to our family of patients.

What Exactly is Dental Ozone Therapy?

When it comes to breaking this all down simply, just think of ozone as a form of oxygen gas containing three oxygen molecules compared to two, otherwise referred to as O3. When used in dentistry this harmless, helpful gas is powerful enough to help us as a natural antibiotic. It has the ability to kill harmful bacteria that can lead to gum disease or cavities in your mouth. Dental ozone treatment leaves the good bacteria in our mouths to continue to do their job. Though relatively unknown by patients, this type of therapy has actually been used for hundreds of years but has made a big comeback recently because of issues with bacteria that are becoming resistant to various antibiotics. Your biological and holistic dentist in Wilmington will tell you that this type of treatment is changing dentistry because it’s:

  • Painless
  • Conservative
  • Minimally invasive
  • Able to dramatically reduced how long you’re in the dental chair

How Does This Help Me?

When the O3 gas is blown onto your tooth decay, it penetrates deep to kill bad bacteria that might be lurking there. Before the bacteria has a chance to return over the next several months, minerals that occur naturally in your saliva will do their job. They start to remineralize your tooth decay and help you regain a more healthy tooth structure. The renewed tooth is actually going to be more resistant to decay in the future. Sounds good, right? But that’s just one of the many benefits that dental ozone therapy can do for you. At All About Smiles, we use this revolutionary treatment to:

  • Clear away infection and bacteria to cure and heal gums, and ear and sinus infections
  • Kill dental infection that might be hard to reach during our holistic root canal treatments
  • Improve and restore circulation to your jaw muscles
  • Help to support bone regeneration
  • Inactivate or kill viral matter such as bad bacteria and fungi
  • Aid in healing your smile by improving its blood supply

As you can see, dental ozone therapy is pretty unique and quite effective at helping your smile heal and stay healthy. We have nothing but rave reviews from our patients who utilize this treatment at our biological and holistic family dental office in Wilmington.
