“The use of ozone in dentistry is gaining its place in every day’s dental practice and is used in almost all dental applications. The undisputed disinfection power of ozone over other antiseptics makes the use of ozone in dentistry a very good alternative and/or an additional disinfectant to standard antiseptics.”
The authors of this article bring good news for dental patients with more severe problems as well. Ozone is effective in treating gingivitis and periodontal disease. Gingivitis causes inflammation with redness and swelling of the gum around the base of the teeth. It can lead to the more serious gum disease of periodontitis that can lead to the loss of teeth. The research indicates these dental diseases “are reduced or treated with ozone in all its application forms (gas, water, oil).” In addition to being Nature’s powerful purifier, the research finds that ozone speeds the healing of tissue.

Dr. Majid Ali, author of the book Oxygen and Aging, resisted using ozone in his medical practice for many years because in a testtube ozone acts like an oxidant—takes electrons. He discovered, however, that the way the body uses ozone is different than the chemistry found in a test tube. Ozone acts in a beneficial way in the body by contributing to antioxidant processes—ozone turns on enzyme systems crucial to health. Ozone is good!
In “Dentists hail the end of fillings” the use of ozone in dentistry is described … not just to ozonate water to rinse your mouth. “The treatment, called Healozone, uses a blast of ozone gas to kill bacteria. The painless procedure allows saliva to strengthen damaged teeth naturally.”
Ozone has long been accepted in Europe as both a medical therapy and for use in industry. This report states: “Ozone has been used by the European food industry as a standard and as a sanitizer for their public water for over a century.”
While ozone has not been adopted in medical circles in North America, it is well-accepted in some European countries as well as Cuba. An article by Nathaniel Altman, “Ozone in Medicine: A Cuban Success Story (Part 1),” describes the use of ozone treatments in Cuba. Altman provides great information on the healing effects of ozone. June 1997.
Free radicals weaken cells which contribute to the disease of cells. No need to fear this process … oxygen and ozone to the rescue! “Oxygen Therapy: Free Radicals” explains how ozone supports an enzyme system that controls the free radical process.
While ozone concentration is used to report smog levels, this practice is questioned by Dr. Joseph Mercola with regards to environmental standards for ozone in air. Dr. Mercola explains that ozone “… is actually the way that nature cleans and removes pollutants naturally from the air outside.”
“Coming Soon: A Controversial ‘Ruling’ That Threatens Your Job AND the Economy” was posted in 2012.
“Where does ozone come from? Nature.” states Ed McCabe, author of Flood Your Body with Oxygen. Ed sums up the process Nature uses to create ozone:
Being heavier than the oxygen in the atmosphere, this newly created Ozone falls back to earth and is immediately replaced by more rising oxygen which is also soon changed into ozone by the sun. A constant natural cycle of up and down oxygen mixing.
“Ozone is Good and Natural” was published by Borderland Sciences in 1990.
A research report from Cuba, where ozone therapy is used extensively, recognizes that higher ozone levels in air are an irritant to the lungs. An experiment with animals is reported, however, in “Ozone Vs Ozone Therapy: The Paradox.” Inhaling low doses of ozone during long periods of time resulted in lung tolerance to higher levels of ozone. Apparently, ozone over time creates the necessary enzymes that prevent irritation of the lungs.
Ozone in higher concentrations is known to be an irritant to lungs. Merlin, a food scientist, made an amazing discovery about the effect of ozone on lungs. He used a sick mouse to start his research as he didn’t want to harm a healthy mouse. Merlin describes his surprise in “Ozone Toxicity” when he discovered the high concentration of ozone actually healed the sick mouse. Borderland Sciences, 1986.
