Holistic Therapy to Combat Periodontal Disease
Because the driving force behind periodontal disease is an excessive accumulation of oral bacteria, controlling these bacteria is vital to preventing and treating the disease. The most harmful oral bacteria are anaerobic, meaning they grow weak and die in the presence of oxygen. Ozone therapy is the use of oxygen (or ozone) to oxidize harmful microbes that lead to and exacerbate periodontal disease. When combined with a consistent schedule of good hygiene and preventive care, ozone therapy can significantly improve your chances of successfully protecting your periodontal health.
How Ozone Therapy Works
Ozone can be administered as a liquid or gas, depending on your specific needs and preferences. As a fluid, it can more thoroughly neutralize bacteria and free radicals in both soft periodontal tissues and harder tooth structure. Because ozone specifically targets harmful microbes, it doesn’t affect your mouth’s ecosystem by attacking healthy ones, which boosts your ability to fight off oral and periodontal infection.
