Ozone Therapy

Bacteria can cause tooth decay and infections. A medical treatment called ozone therapy can kill bacteria and promote healing.

The dentists at Enlighten Dental in Vancouver, BC, use ozone therapy to support the oral health and general wellness of their patients.

Learn how our dentists use ozone therapy during treatment to kill microorganisms in your mouth, fight infections, and aid recovery.

Ozone Therapy Can Make Dental Treatments Safer

Restorative or cosmetic dentistry results such as these can transform the appearance of your smile, but some patients put off treatment because they fear post-procedure complications such as infections. Ozone therapy can greatly reduce the risk of bacterial infections after oral surgery, and can even aid in other procedures like dental crown placement or root canal therapy.

What Is Ozone and Ozone Therapy?

Also known as O3, ozone is a colorless gas that contains molecules made from three atoms of oxygen that are bonded together. The bonded oxygen creates a negative charge that can kill various kinds of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. 

These potentially harmful microorganisms can cause serious oral infections and tooth decay. Unfortunately, they are often found in our mouths. In fact, recent discoveries show these microorganisms are present in plaque, the biofilm that builds up on our teeth.

This means ozone has many exciting medical applications when it comes to patient health. The negatively charged oxygen in ozone can both boost your immune response and sterilize wounds, preventing disease and promoting safer, faster healing after oral surgery procedures or cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Is Ozone Therapy a New Medical Treatment?

6 Benefits of Ozone Therapy in Dentistry

number 1 icon

It Can Strengthen Teeth

Molecules of ozone can help harden your tooth enamel. Since many parents do not want fluoride treatments for themselves or their children, ozone therapy is an excellent alternative to keep teeth strong, protected, and healthy.

number 2 icon

Tooth Decay Prevention

Antibacterial treatment with ozone can stop the growth of harmful microorganisms in the tight crevices between and around your teeth, especially in hard-to-reach back molars. This therapy can prevent chronic dental issues like cavities and toothaches.

number 3 icon

It Helps Fight Infection

Therapy involving ozone can fight off bacterial and viral infections by stimulating your body's immune response. When treatment with ozone boosts your immune response, it becomes easier to prevent diseases and other medical issues from affecting your oral health and overall well-being.
number 4 icon

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Millions of people around the world suffer from chronic gum disease. Our Vancouver, BC, dentists use ozone therapy to kill the bacteria in periodontal pockets that form between the teeth and gums. This helps treat gingivitis and periodontitis and prevents health conditions related to gum disease.
number 5 icon

It Promotes Healing After Oral Surgery

Treatment with ozone can be used to sterilize surgical sites during tooth extractions, dental implant placement, and procedures to treat cavitations (sites of jawbone infection). This allows our dentists to promote faster healing and prevent future infection.
number 6 icon

More Effective Root Canal Therapy

Our Vancouver, BC, dentists can use treatment with ozone to sterilize tooth infections during root canal procedures. This can stop a painful bacterial infection within the root canal of a tooth. This prevents the infection from spreading to surrounding tissue or into your bloodstream.
"Helping every patient who walks into our Vancouver, BC, practice achieve optimum health, regardless of age, is our number one priority. By supporting one another by growing and learning together, we hope to improve your overall health."

Our Ozone Therapy Treatments

We use several methods to deliver ozone to areas of your mouth where disinfecting or healing is needed. These include:
 
  • Ozone gas
  • A concentration of ozone infused into water
  • Olive oil with a high concentration of ozone
  • Ozonated water to rinse with or ingest

We Use Water Lines Sterilized With Ozone For Your Health and Safety

The use of ozone to help eliminate harmful microorganisms has far-reaching dental health and general wellness benefits for our patients.

Our Vancouver, BC, practice uses ozone-sterilized water during dental procedures. The use of ozone-sterilized water can neutralize harmful microorganisms that could travel through the water lines into your body. Water that’s been sterilized with ozone can also potentially neutralize bacteria and viruses that may already be present in your mouth.
