Use of ozone in dentistry can enhance dental treatment outcomes. By using different forms of ozone (gas, water, and oils), and placing them directly into infected pockets, periodontal disease can be arrested without the side effects of antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals. The use of ozone in root canals sterilizes all parts of the tooth down to the tiniest canals and tubules. This allows a sterile canal and retention of your natural teeth. Tooth decay (caries) can be halted with proper exposure to ozone/oxygen therapy, allowing minimal drilling of the tooth.
