Ozone Dental Therapy

Home 9 Ozone Dental Therapy
When most people hear the word “ozone,” they think of the ozone layer in the atmosphere that protects us from cosmic radiation. Well, ozone offers so much more than that, and it can be used by dentists to provide all kinds of effective treatments.

Ozone dental therapy has become a game-changer in the dentistry world. Many patients are making use of this unique molecule to access a range of effective dental treatments.

What is Ozone Dental Therapy?

Ozone is a molecule made up of three oxygen atoms bonded together. This creates a negatively charged particle in the form of a colorless gas. Ozone is now widely used in dentistry to help treat a number of issues.

Ozone dental therapy is the practice of applying ozone to the patient in the form of gas, water, or oil. This can be used to treat:


  • Tooth decay: Ozone has powerful antibacterial properties that can help to slow down cavity growth. This prevents small cavities from growing in the pits and fissures of teeth. Preventing tooth decay is one of the most important jobs for any dentist – something that ozone application can help to achieve.
  • Disinfecting: Ozone can also be applied to areas of tooth decay that lie underneath tooth restorations. This can help to effectively disinfect these areas.
  • Periodontal disease: Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is the most common oral condition that dentists deal with. Ozone can help to disinfect areas of gum disease, which can prevent the spread of chronic gum infection in the mouth.
  • Endodontics: Root canal therapy is a common endodontic treatment, where the dentist treats infected pulp tissue inside a tooth. Ozone can be used to help disinfect the pulp, as well as infected tissues around the tooth’s root.
  • TMJ Pain: Issues with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can cause serious jaw pain. Ozone injections have been known to reduce and relieve symptoms of patients experiencing TMJ pain.
  • Other: Ozone is also used in a variety of other ways to treat oral infections. This includes treating infected tissue in the mouth, treating sinus infections, and treating viral or fungi-induced lesions.
