Oxygen/Ozone In Dentistry
We are so fortunate to be one of the few dental practices in Los Angeles Area licenced and authorized to use Ozone treatment, and feel it is an important part of our Holistic and Integrative dentistry services.Oxygen/Ozone IntroductionOzone, (O3)
, is an energized form of oxygen which contains three atoms of oxygen rather than the two atoms we normally breath. Ozone is the second most powerful sterilizer in the world and has may uses. Interestingly, ozone occurs quite readily in nature, most often as a result of lightning strikes during thunderstorms.
It acts as a natural air filter to clean up the air we breath. In clinical setting, Ozone is created by using state-of-the-art equipment (Ozone Generator) that simulates lightning via an electrical charge.
Research studies on ozone have led to the discovery of various properties that make it an ideal inclusion in integrative therapies. This powerful oxidizer is capable of destroying parasites, viruses, fungi, and bacteria on contact. In comparison to chlorine, another anti-bacterial, ozone is non-toxic and far more powerful.
Ozone Therapy In Dentistry
In our office we use an Ozone Machine generator (Longevity Resource Inc) to produce the Ozone gas and ozonated water or ozonated oil for different purpose.
By using ozonated water in water supply bottle, we keep the tubing in
Dental Unit bacteria free.
