At Northwest Natural Dentistry, we believe the future of dentistry is in the healing of the teeth. Ozone (O3) is an energized form of oxygen that has been known as a powerful medicine for almost a century due to its ability to curb bacteria, yeast, mold, and viruses, all while potentially stimulating the immune system.
Northwest Natural Dentistry offers the top ozone dentistry services near Hayden, ID and beyond, with a skilled team that is dedicated to holistic treatments that preserve your total-body health.
How Does Ozone Dentistry Work?
Ozone dentistry allows us to treat many dental conditions in a safe, conservative manner.
At Northwest Natural Dentistry, we are currently using ozone therapy in the following ways:
Periodontal Disease & Gum Infections
Because gum disease is an infection and ozone can help eliminate infection, irrigating periodontal pockets with O3 water and O3 gas can be highly beneficial. Used in this manner, O3 can not only help arrest the progression of the disease but can also help prevent tooth decay on exposed root surfaces. For some patients, a custom tray that fits snugly over the teeth and gums can be made. O3 gas is then passed into the tray for a period of time every few months to help maintain periodontal health and prevent decay.
Treatment of Cavities
Ozone is mainly used in dentistry for the prevention of cavities. Certain types of cavities can be prevented by exposing them to ozone gas, thus eliminating the need for a filling. Cleaning teeth with ozonated water, just prior to restoring them, is an excellent way to sterilize the tooth and prevent sensitivity.
Cold Sores and Canker Sores
When exposed to ozone gas, cold sores and canker sores heal rapidly. Even better, our doctors have found that, when treated with ozone, the sores may not ever return to the same places again.
