Controlling Infections With Ozone Therapy

If you are not trying to keep problems with periodontal disease under control, you can find yourself dealing with tooth loss. You can also experience more difficulties controlling problems with your general health, including potential issues with your heart! Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice provides different treatment solutions for patients who are affected by a potentially serious infection. One option takes a holistic approach by using concentrated oxygen to fight bacteria. Through ozone therapy, we can destroy harmful microbes while preserving your mouth’s natural ecosystem!

Are You Struggling To Control Periodontal Disease?

If a problem with gingivitis is not addressed in time, bacteria can cause periodontal pockets to worsen, and your infection can become more difficult to address. Eventually, your infection can grow more serious. If this happens, you can find yourself looking at options for controlling the impact of periodontal disease on your life. This can sound alarming, but with the right support, this issue can be managed effectively. There are several steps we can take to protect your gums. One actually calls for liquid or gas concentrations of oxygen to fight the harmful bacteria while leaving healthy microbes unchanged.

Ozone Therapy Uses Oxygen To Target Harmful Microbes

The harmful bacteria that gather on our teeth roots and cause infections are anaerobic, meaning they thrive without oxygen. Ozone therapy introduces oxygen to areas where your gums are in poor health. This singles out the unwelcome microbes, but it lets you preserve your mouth’s healthy ecosystem by protecting good bacteria that you depend on.

Other Services That Address Poor Periodontal Health

Taking action against periodontal disease is important. Depending on your case and concerns, we can recommend several different treatment options. One approach directly targets harmful bacteria and disease gum tissues. With laser technology, we can more precisely work with your soft tissues while we perform this work. The treatment itself is less invasive thanks to the use of lasers, and you can also look forward to a shorter healing period. To help with tissue damage that is occurring because of your poor gum health, we can recommend PRP therapy.
