Dr. Mark is one of the few dentists in America who is certified to conduct research utilizing medical-grade ozone. Many thousands of physicians have used ozone successfully for years. We are very excited to offer today what looks to be a future state-of-the-art treatment.
Ozone kills bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites on contact. There is also a healing reaction begun by the body upon exposure to ozone, which has proven to be very useful in many different dental situations, particularly:
Treating decay. Ozone can be used in deep cavities to avoid exposure of the nerve. Teeth so badly decayed that they were once candidates for root canal treatment or extraction now can often be repaired and the infection reversed with ozone.
Treating gum disease. Ozonated water, oil, and gas can be used in combination – in our office and at home – to kill the bacteria responsible for gum disease.
Treating infections of the jaw. Osteonecrotic lesions (cavitations) and extraction sites can be treated to help avoid the need for antibiotics and to promote healing.
