Dentist near San Marcos, TX offers ozone therapy for gum disease

Dr E. Griffin Cole Providing Ozone therapy for gum disease from dentist in Austin

About 64.7 million Americans – half of the adult population – have gum disease. It is the leading cause of tooth loss in our country. Gum disease is also linked to grave systemic illnesses such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. For many patients in or near the San Marcos, TX area, painless ozone therapy from Dr. Griffin Cole achieves healthy results.

About oxygen/ozone therapy

Ozone is sometimes called “excited oxygen” because it contains three oxygen atoms rather than two (as in atmospheric oxygen), rendering it chemically unstable. This property has tremendous therapeutic benefits.
 
Ozone is a powerful antimicrobial agent. A single ozone molecule equals up to 10,000 molecules of chlorine in ability to kill pathogenic organisms, and it works thousands of times faster. Used in a dental setting as a gas or liquid, it destroys fungi, viruses, and bacteria that cause gum disease. Yet human cells remain undamaged because they have the natural capacity to resist oxidation.
 
Further benefits in combating periodontal disease include immunostimulation – biologically accelerating the body’s own wound healing responses. Ozone fights inflammation by increasing blood oxygenation levels. It triggers cellular level changes that help tissues regenerate.

How it is used

In an appropriately equipped practice with trained staff, ozone is quite versatile.

  • In treatment of gum disease, we direct a stream of ozone gas at diseased tissue using a special dental device.
  • The mouth can be irrigated with ozonated water after deep cleaning, to sanitize root surfaces.
  • An ozonated oil application, repeated weekly at home, soothes inflamed gum tissues, helping to manage periodontal disease on a continuous basis.

While ozone therapy is extremely effective in treatment of gum disease, there are many other dental applications. Schedule a visit at E. Griffin Cole, DDS, NMD to learn more about this innovative approach to oral health. The number is (512) 472-3565.
