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
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.

6 Benefits of Ozone Therapy in Dentistry
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.
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.
