Ozone Therapy Can Treat and Prevent Dental Caries

img Dr. Azadeh Khajavi imgApril 11, 2019

We use ozone therapy as a powerful technique to stop, treat, and prevent dental caries. At Excellence Dental, we have treated deep lesions and have also reversed early lesions and healed teeth at our dental practice. Excellence Dental center uses ozone in an appropriate form—gas, oil, or water—to remove most kinds of caries lesions.

However, if dental caries causes a hole we use full dental restorative procedures to repair the damage and give back your oral health, smile, and confidence.

Why is Ozone Therapy Necessary?

Research indicates that there are 700 oral bacterial species and 19,000 types of phenotypes that are likely causative agents of periodontal infection. So with the help of the latest knowledge about the formation of biofilm and its protective elements and layering, there is a need to find new non-specific treatments.

Ozone therapy fulfills this requirement. Ozone, in the form of water, gas or ozonated oil, can be used on the abscess or directly into the area of chronic infection to control and remove bacterial population.

 What is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone therapy is a recognized, and highly effective dental technique to prevent caries and the mechanism is similar to the way physicians manage biofilm infections in other parts of the body. In ozone therapy, the ozone substance not only kills all the harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoans, it also eliminates their breakdown products and necrotic debris.

In dental caries, the waste produced is highly acidic, which causes the initial attack on your dental enamel. The infecting acidogenic organisms also leave behind different biomolecules that ultimately take over the biofilm and make the caries attack permanent. Ozone removes the germs and even the leftover biomolecules, leaving a significantly less damaging biofilm to predominate.

As part of the post-ozone therapy healing process, we create a period of 3-4 months in which your teeth remineralize with the help of supersaturated phosphate ions and calcium found in healthy saliva. Dentists promote remineralization using xylitol, probiotics, and fluorides.

Your dentist may also use full-arch trays, which cover all your teeth and gums and insufflate the area for a few minutes as a preventive measure every few months.

Physicians Warn About Caries

Physicians are as worried about dental caries as dentists because the germs that are known to cause tooth decay can also be seen in the plaques in the intima of arteries and can cause atherogenesis. The germs attack prosthesis, joints, and can trigger fatal brain infection.

Periodontal Infection Can Spread To Other Body Parts

Gum or periodontal disease is most often identified with halitosis, and its ultimate result is loosening and permanent loss of natural teeth. However, a gum infection is not just a dental issue.

An infection can result in a lesion that wraps around the roots of the teeth in a highly contaminated area. The pustulent and raw tissue can quickly swim up to the surface area of the palm and also the whole forearm.

We receive a significant number of patients with periodontal lesions with a continuous cascade of germs directly entering blood circulation. Apart from being a direct infection, the condition is also extremely inflammogenic and can attack the endothelium of all vessels among other consequences. A damaged endothelium admits pathogenic organisms into the intima and lays the groundwork for atherogenesis.

The only positive aspect of the lesion is that it is usually hidden with no fungating lesion covering the face inviting the immediate public and medical attention. Moreover, there’s no pain in a periodontal attack until the last stage. So, frequent dental check-ups, prevention, and early treatment are all the more critical.
