Ozone Therapy in NJ

Dental Healing Arts is among the few dental clinics in NJ offering ozone therapy. This alternative dental treatment stands out in many ways. 

However, before we discuss Ozone dentistry in NJ, how we offer the service and more, it’s important to define some terms.

What is Ozone Therapy?

Most people think of the ozone layer when they hear the word “ozone”, which refers to a layer in the atmosphere that protects us from UV sun rays (known to be harmful). This layer, or its composition, happens to have an important application in dentistry.

The ozone layer is composed of 3-oxygen atoms (O3), creating a negatively charged particle that exists as a colorless gas. In simple terms, ozone is a form of oxygen but with three atoms of oxygen instead of two. When used in dentistry, ozone (in various forms) offers a non-invasive treatment option for many dental health problems.

For instance, Dental Healing Arts uses ozone therapy to safely kill microorganisms responsible for tooth decay and related problems.

History Of Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy in dentistry can be traced to the 1930s when Dr. E.A. Fisch (a Swiss dentist) began using ozone regularly in his dental clinic in Zurich, Switzerland, and authored many publications on the subject.

Close to a century later, the benefits of dental ozone therapy can be enjoyed in North America, South America, Europe, and beyond. 

Dental Healing Arts is proud to continue this history!

How is Ozone Therapy Done in Dentistry?

Our NJ Ozone therapy service is quick and painless. Many treatments utilize ozone directly. In some treatments, the gas is mixed with oil or water to create ozonated oil or ozonated water. We utilize ozone in three main forms namely, ozonated water, ozone gas, or ozonated oil

Treatment generally takes minutes. The ozonated water, oil, or ozone gas is applied to the treatment area to kill pathogens like bacteria. Ozone also serves other purposes, like reducing tooth sensitivity. 

In case you are wondering where the ozonated oil, water, or ozone gas comes from, Dental Healing Arts has invested in the latest ozone-generating machines that create ozone gas from oxygen.

Ozone therapy treatment is administered by our highly experienced holistic dentists assisted by other skilled dental professionals. They apply the ozone gas, water, or oil to a patient’s gums or teeth and let it do its job. Ozone works like a disinfectant. 

The oxygen atoms interact directly with pathogens in the gums and teeth known to cause tooth decay and periodontal disease. The oxygen oxidizes the pathogens, killing them in the process. The oxygen atoms also break down plaque biofilms responsible for causing tooth decay.

Dental ozone therapy doesn’t damage healthy tissue. While cells have antioxidants that may try to fight the oxidative effect of ozone, pathogens responsible for dental health problems aren’t strong enough to fight ozone effects.

Treatment is as simple as applying the gas, oil, or water to your gums and/or teeth. The process usually takes a few minutes (one to two minutes) for the ozone to work.

Step 4: Post Ozone Dental Therapy Treatment

After treatment, you should wait for a few minutes for the ozone gas, oil, or water to break down, after which you are free to leave. Treatment can involve follow-up sessions to monitor the progress of treatment.

Ozone Uses in Dentistry. Applications of Ozone Therapy

What dental health problems can ozone therapy treat?

At Dental Healing Arts, we use ozone therapy to treat the following dental care problems;

1. Tooth Decay

We use ozone therapy to treat tooth decay. Ozone’s antibacterial properties are perfect for managing and preventing tooth decay. Studies have shown that ozone can stop small cavities from worsening in fissures and pits on the surfaces of back teeth. Ozone is also great for disinfecting decay areas below tooth restorations.

We can heal small cavities using ozone. This may require several visits. Ozone is great at killing oral bacteria, which secretes acid which weakens teeth enamel over time to cause cavities. Most importantly, ozone therapy targets the harmful bacteria and plaque only. 

It’s worth noting that saliva can’t remineralize the teeth naturally and strengthen enamel without the presence of plaque and bacteria. Ozone destroys cavity-causing bacteria without damaging oral tissue or affecting remineralization negatively. In fact, ozone is a tooth-strengthening treatment.

2. Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease)

If you have periodontal/gum disease, you can also benefit from our dental ozone NJ services. Gum disease is a very common dental health problem globally. The problem begins as a gum infection that spreads over time to the jawbone supporting the teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease causes teeth and bone loss. Ozone therapy is effective for gum disease since ozone disinfects chronic gum infections.

Dental Healing Arts dentists apply ozonated water, ozonated oil or ozone gas directly to the gums. We let the gas infiltrate the gums and surround the tooth/teeth in question and any abscesses.

Some procedures may involve irrigating ozonated water for a few minutes per treatment session, for several weekly sessions to reduce bacterial count, plaque index, and gingival index.

3. Endodontics

We also use ozone therapy when conducting endodontic procedures like root canal. You need a root canal procedure when your oral pulp tissue (inside your tooth/teeth) becomes irreversibly infected. 

In the past, such tooth infections were treated by removing the infected teeth. However, it is possible to treat the infected tissue only while preserving the natural tooth/teeth. We apply ozone to disinfect canals inside the teeth and surrounding tissue on the tooth root tip. 

4. Temporomandibular Disorders

Our ozone therapy dental treatment in New Jersey can also treat temporomandibular disorders characterized by jaw pain and other symptoms, such as a limited ability to chew and/or open the mouth. There are studies indicating that ozone therapy can relieve temporomandibular pain.

5. Restorative Dentistry

Individuals seeking restorative dentistry services can also benefit from our ozone therapy service. The strong bacterial effect of ozone plays a critical role in disinfecting the treatment area during dental restorative procedures like installation of dental implants. Ozone also has many applications in restorative dentistry, requiring oral surgery. 

We use ozone therapy for simple tooth extraction procedures to severe jaw infections or osteotomy procedures. 

In dental surgery (such as implant dentistry or tooth extractions), ozone therapy will help in disinfecting and boosting oxygen release, which boosts blood supply and fastens wound healing.

6. Hypersensitive Teeth

If you have hypersensitive teeth, you could also benefit from ozone therapy. Some dental problems related to tooth structure loss occur due to many things ranging from erosion to trauma and abrasion. These dental problems are known to cause hypersensitivity. 

As mentioned, Ozone treatment can reduce sensitivity and pain linked to sensitive teeth. The therapy also makes typical dental procedures (such as teeth cleaning) bearable. We can apply ozone to hypersensitive teeth to get rid of sensitivity for a longer period than typical treatment modalities.
