“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.
