Bacteria is the number one threat to oral health and wellness in modern times. It comes from food and drink and remains on the teeth, eating through the enamel and damaging soft tissues. In the past, it was common for dentists to scrape and clean the teeth to eliminate plaque and decay. At the Julian Center for Comprehensive Dentistry, we offer cutting-edge ozone treatments in Ellicott City, MD.
Dental ozone treatment, also called ozone therapy, is a holistic form of care that eliminates plaque and bacteria from the teeth. During the procedure, our dentist administers a measured amount of ozone gas. The negative charge of the gas reduces inflammation, eradicates bacteria, and changes the oral environment, so the bacteria does not return.
Ozone therapy in dentistry utilizes ozone in many ways, including periodontal therapy. It is used to kill the bacteria in cavities, as opposed to the traditional drilling and filling. Ozone therapy is minimally invasive and reduces the amount of drilling and filling needed for teeth with cavities.
Ozone treatment is holistic and does not utilize chemicals or unpleasant scraping. There is no discomfort during the procedure, and it is non-invasive. It is, therefore, ideal for our patients who are unnerved by traditional treatments, prone to discomfort or have sensitive teeth or gums.
Ozone therapy is also ideal for younger children and older patients. No drilling during cavity treatment means dental enamel is not damaged and can recover without undergoing further drama.
In short, this treatment is simple, painless, noninvasive, and ideal for sensitive mouths.
Ozone treatment has been practiced for decades by holistic dental centers and generates no side effects. Because there is no drilling or scraping, patients also do not need to undergo a period of recovery.
