O3 is a powerful oxidant.
Bacteria, viruses, and fungi are very vulnerable to oxidation, while healthy cells have antioxidant protection and they are not affected by the therapeutic levels of ozone.
Ozone's ability to safely disinfect tissue and encourage regeneration is unparalleled and we can reduce the need for the generally overused antibiotics.
In our office OZONE, in gas or ozonated water form, is used for:
-pretreatment rinse to disinfect the oral cavity
-staff protection from contaminated aerosols produced by high-speed instruments
-treatment of incipient cavity areas, dental sensitivity, disinfection of teeth before restorations are placed, gum pockets and root canals.
