The benefits of oxygen ozone therapy in dentistry is seen in gum treatments in our Austin practice
Oral health is not only related to our teeth, but to the soft tissues in the mouth as well. We have learned from research that the health of our teeth and gums is associated with general health. One of the priorities of our biological dental practice is preserving oral health through the early detection and treatment of conditions such as gum disease. When treating this infection, we are careful to do so in a manner that minimizes the risk of problems in the future while promoting safety and comfort for each patient.
Gum disease is not a one-size-fits-all dental problem. When treating this condition, we begin with thorough diagnostic testing that identifies the pathogens at work on gum tissue. Testing for gum disease is simple and comfortable, as well as invaluable to our treatment planning process.
The most common treatment protocol for gum disease is deep cleaning. This treatment is performed by an experienced dental hygienist and it may include local anesthetic for total comfort. Teeth with periodontal pockets around them are cleaned below the surface of the gums, removing accumulated plaque and bacteria, as well as smoothing the surface of tooth roots to help gum tissue adhere and prevent bacterial buildup. While deep cleaning and the application of antibiotics may be the standard of care, your biological dentist knows there is more to optimal healing. When treating gum disease, Dr. Cole may incorporate the benefits of ozone.
Oxygen ozone therapy in dentistry
In our Austin dental practice, we use ozone in a number of procedures and treatments. This element is essentially energized oxygen, made using state-of-the-art equipment that charges medical grade oxygen with electricity. Applied in one of several forms, ozone has immense healing power, improving blood flow and encouraging healing in damaged tissues.
Ozone is a non-toxic, non-allergenic substance that destroys various microorganisms, including forms of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. While effective at killing these harmful microorganisms, ozone is safe to the human body.
Dentistry may be a field focused on oral health, but your biological dentist understands the immense impact the mouth, including dental treatments, has on the body. Contact us to take advantage of extraordinary dental care.
