One of the ways of maintaining a beautiful smile is to prevent damage and disease, including periodontal disease and dental decay. At Dentistry by Shane Nelson, patients in the Overland Park, KS area who are interested in ways to improve and maintain healthy teeth may want to learn more about the integration of ozone treatment into their next dental visit.
What is ozone?
Ozone is a type of gas that can be used in areas of medicine for the treatment of a wide range of conditions. Dr. Shane Nelson has had extensive training and education on the use of ozone therapy in dental procedures. Ozone is effective at promoting healthy gum tissues, eliminating infections within the mouth, and accelerating healing and recovery following dental surgeries. This makes it a wonderful addition to his practice for new and current patients.
How is ozone used in dentistry?
As a practice with a biological and holistic focus, Dr. Shane Nelson finds that integrating ozone therapy into routine procedures can significantly increase the speed of healing and recovery while reducing bacteria. Ozone is used for:
- Disinfecting the teeth for root canal therapy
- Reducing sensitivity in teeth
- Slowing down to progression of periodontal disease (gum disease)
- Addressing decay when placing fillings
- Addressing sensitivity from cosmetic whitening services
- Combating bacteria in the mouth
Is ozone therapy safe?
Absolutely! Studies continue to show the benefits of integrating ozone therapy into dental treatment ever since it has been used in the field of medicine years before. It is a conservative and biologically friendly method of treatment in improving a patient’s dental health and wellness while performing routine dental services. It can be integrated into most dental services in our practice and continues to be used routinely by our team.
