Ozone therapy is a state-of-the-art holistic dentistry technique that uses ozone gas to disinfect your mouth and prevent common problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.
When your dentist releases ozone gas into your oral cavity, it’s attracted to areas of inflammation and infection. Certain types of oral bacteria rely on acid to thrive. Ozone neutralizes the acidity in your mouth and alters your pH levels. By restoring your mouth to a more alkaline state, healthy bacteria can thrive.
Ozone therapy is effective and natural. It’s also an excellent preventive option that significantly lowers your risk of tooth decay and other common problems in the future.
Ozone therapy has a variety of benefits. For example:
In addition, ozone therapy allows a weak or damaged tooth to heal and become strong again.
No. Ozone therapy is safe and well-tolerated. In addition, ozone therapy doesn’t require the use of drills, fillings, or injections. Ozone therapy provides a noninvasive and pain-free way to address tooth decay in its early stages. When performed by a holistic dentist like Dr. Ferguson or his team, ozone therapy may help you avoid further cavity treatment altogether.
When your dentist applies ozone gas to your teeth and gums, it goes to work removing bacterial waste from your mouth. Ozone therapy also prevents cavities from developing and accelerates the remineralization of your tooth enamel, strengthening them. Anyone experiencing the early signs of tooth decay or gum disease can benefit from ozone therapy.
Dr. Ferguson also uses ozone therapy for dental infections as an alternative treatment to antibiotics. If you have allergies or simply want to avoid the use of prescription medications, ozone therapy provides an excellent treatment option.
Following ozone therapy treatment, you can return to your normal routine right away. The treatment is minimally invasive and there aren’t any anesthetics or sedatives used. As a result, you won’t feel groggy or tired and can drive yourself home.
Don’t let gum disease or tooth decay negatively impact your smile. To learn more about the benefits of ozone therapy, make an appointment by calling the office of Jack E. Ferguson, DDS, LLC today.
