Ozone is “Supercharged” Oxygen
Ozone (O3) is an unstable, colorless gas that is composed of 3 molecules of oxygen, unlike the air we breathe that contains 2 molecules (O2). Ozone is what protects our atmosphere from the sun’s radiation. It is also a byproduct of smog and is produced naturally by lightning. Medical ozone is manufactured with medical grade oxygen and a corona discharge generator. Ozone was discovered in the 1800s and has a long history in medicine and dentistry, primarily in European countries, Russia and Cuba. The Ozone molecule is very unstable and it wants to give off an electron as it returns back to O2. Our body’s cell walls are able to tolerate ozone but the cell wall of a bacteria, virus, fungus or even protozoa are instantly torn apart, making Ozone very potent against infection. There are additional biologic effects in the tissue where Ozone is used. It is commonly used to sterilize water and air systems all around the world. Our own body’s white blood cells manufacture Ozone in their fight against bacteria and viruses. We use Ozone in our practice in many ways. We ozonate of all of the water used in our drills, ultrasonics and dental units.
Ozone is used in a gas form in oral surgery, root canals, and periodontal treatment.
Ozone is also used in restorative dental treatment to make sure that all of the bacteria in decay have been killed. It is helpful in the desensitization of sensitive teeth.
Who wouldn’t want to fight bacteria and virus’ in a natural way?
