Using Ozone Therapy To Fight Gum Disease

There are different solutions to problems caused by gum disease. For someone who arranges treatment in time, preventive efforts can successfully reverse an infection and prevent long-term difficulties. If you already have problems with periodontal disease, more involved services can be required to protect you against further complications. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, Dr. Kania is prepared to help you undergo care that will protect your gums and prevent your infection from causing further trouble for you. One option we offer is ozone therapy, a more holistic approach to care that relies on oxygen to fight the buildup of harmful bacteria while preserving healthy microbes that are present in your mouth.

How Concentrated Oxygen Helps Manage Periodontal Disease

The presence of anaerobic bacteria under your gums can create long-term difficulties for your periodontal health. An infection is capable of damaging the tissues that support teeth, which is why many people with periodontal disease suffer tooth loss. You can also experience health difficulties when bacteria travel through your blood stream and affect other areas. Someone who is not managing their infection can be more vulnerable to particularly serious threats, like heart disease, and they can have a difficult time managing other health issues. Through the use of ozone therapy, we can fight the accumulation of bacteria that make trouble for your well-being while preserving those microbes that support a healthy ecosystem within your mouth.

Scheduling Ozone Therapy To Tend To Your Gums

Ozone therapy can rely on concentrations of oxygen in liquid or gas form. Through this treatment, we can fight the spread of harmful agents that cause problems for someone suffering from periodontal disease. The value of this approach is that it fights unwelcome anaerobic bacteria while leaving healthy microbes. This helps you preserve your mouth’s ecosystem, as these beneficial bacteria help you avoid oral and periodontal problems.

Other Services That Help You Protect Your Gums

Based on a careful study of your gums, we can recommend different services that will help you manage problems with periodontal disease. When necessary, we can recommend that a patient undergo laser periodontal treatment to remove diseased gums as well as bacteria on the roots of teeth. We can also discuss services like PRP therapy to encourage the growth of healthy tissues when damage to your gums is already a concern.
