Ozone therapy has been used successfully in dentistry for the treatment of numerous diseases for more than a decade.
Its unique properties include immunostimulant, analgesic, antihypnotic, detoxicating, antimicrobial, bioenergetic and biosynthetic actions. Its atraumatic, painless, non invasive nature and relative absence of discomfort increase patient’s acceptability and compliance thus making it an ideal treatment choice specially for pediatric patients.
Ozone therapy presents great advantages when used as a support for conventional treatments and is indicated for use in a wide range of dental specialties, such as treatment of oral pathogens, oral tissues, pit and fissure caries, root caries, as an antimicrobial in endodontics and in oral surgery.
