If you are looking for the latest advancements in cutting edge dental procedures then look no further than ozone dental therapy. This latest dental treatment is available at The Smile Gallery in East Grinstead and uses ozone, which is a reactive oxygen molecule, to kill bacteria in less than a minute.
How ozone therapy works.
Ozone therapy helps promote and heal the remaining tooth. The therapy will firstly neutralise the remaining surfaces in the tooth and promote the tooth to heal.
High concentrations of ozone will kill bacteria very quickly, and the agent is around a thousand times more powerful than any other bacteria killing agents. Studies have shown that it only takes 10 seconds of ozone therapy to kill 99% of bacteria in a patient’s teeth including fungi and viruses.
Ozone dental therapy is an excellent preventative measure in combating tooth decay. Decay and bacteria are identified in the areas of the teeth. The soft decay is then removed and leaving the hardened tissue. A suction cup is then used to direct the ozone onto the desired area. With the bacteria completely eradicated the dentist will then place a special mineralisation agent onto the clean area that enables the healing of the tooth.
Ozone is said to prevent further decay in your tooth and maximise the life span of dental work you have minimising the need for costly further treatment in the future.
With the cavity prepped and clean the chosen restoration will be placed, in our case a natural looking restoration perfectly matched to your own tooth colour.
Does it hurt?
Not at all. Not only does Heal Ozone remove the need for injections and drilling, it is a totally pain-free treatment. This is why it is used increasingly to treat phobic patients and children, with huge success (and customer satisfaction) rates.
Is it safe
Ozone the gas is formed from oxygen particles, so it is entirely harmless to people. HealOzone is not only harmless, it also helps teeth to become stronger in fighting decay in the future.
