Ozone Therapy

IV Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy is an alternative treatment for illnesses that has potentially powerful healing capabilities. Autotherapy (intravenous administration) is the most common, and in most cases the most effective way ozone is administered.

The patient sits in a chair and has from 6-12 ounces of blood removed into a sterilized bottle. Then, pure medical grade ozone is injected into the bottle, and the bottle is gently shaken, allowing the red and white blood cells to take up the ozone. The ozonated blood is then returned to the body. The entire procedure takes about 30-40 minutes.

Because of its many therapeutic properties, ozone can be used to treat many different dental issues. Our team is trained and experienced in the medical use of ozone. Give us a call today at (501) 843-5808 or click below to book your appointment!

what is ozone therapy and how does it work?

Ozone therapy refers to the process of administering ozone gas into your body to treat a disease or wound. Ozone is a colorless gas made up of three atoms of oxygen. In medical uses, ozone therapy gas is made from medical-grade oxygen sources.

Medical ozone has been used to disinfect and treat different conditions for more than 100 years. It may also help prevent infection in wounds. When ozone comes into contact with body fluids, the resulting reactions form more proteins and red blood cells. This increases oxygen supply in your body and stimulates your immune system.

Ozone therapy may also disrupt unhealthy processes in your body. Ozone therapy can inactivate:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Fungi
  • Yeast
  • Protozoa

benefits of ozone dentistry

Ozone therapy has proven useful in treating a number of different dental issues:

  • Tooth Decay | Ozone’s antibacterial properties may help prevent small cavities from growing larger in the pits and fissures on the biting surfaces of the back teeth. Additionally, ozone may be helpful in disinfecting areas of decay underneath tooth restorations.
  • Periodontal Disease | Ozone has shown promise in helping disinfect areas of chronic gum infection. A dentist can apply it directly to the gums as a gas or in oils or water, allowing the ozone to infiltrate the collar of gum that surrounds each tooth and any abscesses.
  • Endodontics | Endodontic procedures, including root canals, become necessary when the pulp tissue inside of a tooth becomes irreversibly infected. Ozone may help disinfect the canal inside the tooth, as well as the tissues around the tip of the tooth root. This can help prevent the infection from spreading.
  • TMJ Pain | The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can sometimes be subject to a group of disorders referred to as temporomandibular disorders (TMD). This condition can cause jaw pain and limit a person’s ability to chew comfortably or even open their mouth. Injections of ozone have been shown to help relieve symptoms in patients experiencing TMJ pain.
