Discover The Ozone's Healing Power

Discover The Ozone's Healing Power

Ozone therapy has become a highly interesting new tool for dental professionals to employ in the cleaning and healing teeth, gums, and bones in recent years.

Ozone is made up of three oxygen atoms linked together as O3. When oxygen reacts with UV radiation from the sun, lightning, or our bodies’ immune systems, it is formed in nature. Medical-grade oxygen is artificially converted into medical ozone/oxygen (MOZO) in dental operations. This MOZO is produced using a device that has undergone extensive testing in the medical area and produces reproducible ozone levels at predetermined doses.

Ozone and oxygen combine to create the gas, typically containing over 99% oxygen and less than 1% ozone. The final oxygen/ozone gas can be collected in a syringe for immediate use, bubbled through water to provide a potent, non-toxic irrigant, or bubbled through different oils like olive oil to significantly increase the shelf-life activity of ozone and create a reliable commercial product. The ability of medical ozone generators to produce these precise, minute volumes of pure ozone has been independently and officially confirmed by government and third-party laboratory testing.


When oxygen or ozone is supplied to a living organism, it causes a phenomenon known as a “transient oxidative burst.” The infectious bacteria are overstressed and eventually die because they lack a natural defense against this reaction. As a result, the treated area is safely and effectively disinfected by oxygen/ozone.

This “oxidative burst” also triggers various normal biochemical and physiological processes. Some of these are better blood flow, an improved immunological response, and a faster healing response. Ozone is particularly helpful for treating the pathogenic biofilms that cause periodontal disease because it can penetrate and oxidize bacterial biofilms more effectively than virtually anything else.


With the right administration and adherence to approved standards of care, oxygen/ozone can improve results in all areas of dentistry. For instance, periodontal disease is characterized by an infection-causing expansion of microorganisms in the biofilm and chronic inflammation of the bone and gums. Periodontal disease can be controlled without pharmaceutical medications and their accompanying adverse effects by applying oxygen/ozone in various application forms, such as ozonated water and ozonated oils, and injecting oxygen/ozone gas directly into the affected gum pockets.

Following oxygen/ozone therapy exposure, tooth decay, caries, or a “tooth infection” can be stopped nearly quickly. Since little to no tooth drilling is required, this method is very helpful when treating children. The weakened substance may need to be removed, and a filling may need to be inserted, depending on how much of the tooth has been harmed by the decay.

Infection management is one of dentistry’s most challenging and confounding issues today. The mouth cavity is a sea of microbes that, in a perfect world, coexist with the human body. Infection results from pathogenic or “disease-causing” bacteria taking control of the environment under specific circumstances. These pathogenic microbes coexist in a biofilm, which is what it’s called.

This biofilm supports a diverse infection of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. The problem is that different medicine is required to treat these “disease-causing” kinds to undermine their dominance. What if a substance could sustain the surrounding healthy tissue without causing hazardous side effects and treat and eradicate the infection? Dentistry uses oxygen/ozone therapy currently.

Ozone therapy is a form of adjuvant treatment for jawbone cavitations. Dose-controlled oxygen/ozone gas can have a powerful disinfecting effect when injected into recognized lesions. Numerous anaerobic waste products of microbial metabolism are pro-thrombotic and tend to exacerbate the bone ischemia issue typical of cavitations. Numerous healing processes that lead to the development of new circulation can also be triggered by ozone.

Endodontics, a branch of dentistry that examines sick root canals in teeth, is another concern. The inflamed, diseased, or necrotic pulp must be removed as part of root canal therapy using specialized tools, and the pulp’s former home must then be thoroughly rinsed. In comparison to conventional irrigants like bleach, oxygen/ozone therapy has a greater potential for thoroughly disinfecting the interior of the tooth, even into the smallest canals and tubules, and thus provides a high level of disinfection, which is a key objective for this contentious treatment (see photo).

When used and applied properly, ozonated water, oxygen/ozone gas and oils are all safe. As with other medical procedures, only your healthcare professional can decide whether this operation is necessary.
