How Ozone Therapy Targets Harmful Bacteria

When bacteria on your teeth begin to gather on your roots and attack your periodontal tissues, the infection that results can cause serious issues. Over time, that infection can lead to tissue damage that causes instability and makes tooth extractions necessary. You also need to be aware that accumulating bacteria can enter the bloodstream and affect other parts of your body. Through ozone therapy, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist can help you manage your condition by directly targeting harmful anaerobic bacteria while leaving healthy microbes alone. This makes it possible for us to control your condition while still preserving your mouth’s healthy ecosystem!

The Importance Of Effectively Fighting Harmful Bacteria

At first, you can experience gingivitis as bacteria start to gather below your gum line and affect your health. When this occurs, the problem should not be taken lightly, but remember that this condition is still reversible. If you let the infection worsen, it can be more difficult to manage, which is why you may need to have a specialist evaluate you and recommend different treatment options. Simply put, the sooner you act on concerns about your gums, the less likely you are to need more involved services. When a patient does require them, we can perform a detailed review before we recommend beneficial options for care.

How Ozone Therapy Helps You Preserve Your Mouth’s Ecosystem

Through ozone therapy, you can have harmful bacteria under your gums targeted without disrupting the healthy microbes that are present in your mouth. The preservation of your mouth’s natural ecosystem helps you maintain your health over time. We are able to selectively deal with unwelcome microbes by using concentrated oxygen in either a liquid or gas form.

They include services that rely on laser tools to carefully fight bacteria and remove unhealthy tissues.
