Using Ozone Therapy To Manage Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease occurs when the bacteria that gather on teeth make their way underneath your gum line. When this occurs, they can create problems with inflammation and tissue damage as they continue to grow, and they can cause serious oral and general health concerns. The damage done by periodontal bacteria can lead to tooth loss, and the potential spread of bacteria can cause you to experience additional health troubles! At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we offer several treatments that can control the threat of periodontal disease. One treatment we provide is ozone therapy, which uses concentrated doses of oxygen to eliminate harmful bacteria without hurting beneficial microbes.

The Importance Of Controlling The Growth Of Periodontal Bacteria

Periodontal bacteria will continue to grow underneath your gums once they have gathered. If that growth is not controlled, you face a greater risk for experiencing difficult symptoms of the infection. This is why we make the control of bacteria growth a priority. One reason we recommend ozone therapy for this is that the procedure can target those unwelcome microbes that are responsible for your condition, but leave healthy bacteria. This better preserves your mouth’s ecosystem, which can help with your natural recovery.

Ozone Therapy Targets Unwelcome Microbes That Cause Problems For Your Gums

We offer both liquid and gas treatments to fight your unwanted periodontal bacteria. These concentrated doses of oxygen work because we want to eliminate bacteria that are anaerobic, meaning they react poorly to oxygen. This is a safe and effective way to remove unwelcome agents. These treatments, along with preventive periodontal procedures, make it possible to limit the harm that periodontal disease can do.

You Can Also Use Perio Protect To Fight Unwelcome Bacteria At Home

Your periodontist is not the only person who can help you fight bacteria – you fight these microbes through your oral hygiene routine. To help you with this, we can provide you with Perio Protect. Perio Protect consists of antimicrobial agents and customized trays. The trays help you easily administer the antibacterial solution directly to your gums, so you can take on those concentrations of bacteria that are creating trouble for your periodontal health.
