Your Austin biological dentist offers natural gum disease treatment that works
Statistics suggest that approximately half of the adults in America have gum disease. Insufficient dental care is a major problem according to research. There are a number of reasons why it may be difficult to maintain routine dental care. The fact is; however, that you can only neglect your teeth so long before consequences in the form of problems like gum disease begin to build up.
Gum disease is not to be taken lightly. This condition, due to its progressive nature, is extremely serious. In its early stages, the inflammation of this infectious disease looks so mild that it may be missed. A bit of soreness or bleeding may be easily attributed to brushing technique. This is not the case. What you do not see in gum disease is the plaque that has accumulated around teeth at the gum line. You may not even see the onset of periodontal pockets forming in infected areas. Certainly, you do not see the millions of bacteria or their acidic byproduct at work in the mouth or their entry into the body where infection can affect other organs and systems.
Bacteria that live in the mouth, when they infect the gums and enter the blood, the lungs, or soft tissue, cause an undue amount of stress on the immune system. This important aspect of health works hard to combat chronic infection in the gums and elsewhere. We are happy to assist the immune system by providing our Austin patients with natural gum disease treatment surpassing the current standard of care.
The fact of the matter is that deep hygiene and the application of topical antibiotics to infected gums produces only limited effects. Bacteria are becoming more and more resistant creating challenges to the treatment of chronic infection like gum disease. Dr. Griffin Cole has been practicing biological dentistry for many years. In this time, he has become familiar with natural therapies that have a powerful effect on adverse dental conditions. Treating gum disease with ozone, he has had a great deal of success helping patients manage oral health.
Ozone in dentistry
When you understand the role ozone plays in the reduction of pollution and pathogens in the environment, you can see why this natural substance is so beneficial in the treatment of disease. When applied to human tissue through injection, topical application, or rinsing, ozone achieves a number of goals:
- Due to weak structure, diseased cells cannot withstand the oxidation that occurs from contact with ozone. This substance has an almost instantaneous effect on viruses, fungi and bacteria through which these pathogens are destroyed.
- Cardiovascular disease
- Ozone promotes the metabolism of oxygen and also increases circulation to the area on which it is applied.
- Naturally, immunity is activated by the introduction of ozone into the body.
Dr. Cole offers patients numerous ways to improve their oral health, as well as, several reasons to actually enjoy visiting the dentist. Schedule your personal consultation in our Austin practice today.Back to Gum Disease Page
