Periodontal treatment with ozone
Most of people possess a fear towards dentistry. On account of this fear, they avoid the dental treatment. Infact, people fear injections and drills that are used in dental clinics. But, in recent time, dentistry has been experiencing a period of dynamic changes and growth, perhaps like no other time before. The use of ozone in dental treatment is the result of this dynamics and growth. Incorporation of ozone in dental clinic set-ups would eradicate the feeling of pain during dental treatment and also cut off the treatment time, significantly. Ozone has been shown to stimulate remineralization of recent caries-affected teeth after a period of about six to eight weeks. Scientific support, as suggested by demonstrated studies, for ozone therapy presents a potential for an atraumatic, biologically-based treatment for conditions encountered in dental practice.
Very recently, in dentistry, ozone has got its role in various dental treatment modalities. Interest in ozone use in dentistry is due to the infectious diseases associated with the oral cavity. Ozone therapy presents great advantages when used as a support for conventional treatments, for example, to dental caries, periodontal procedures, and endodontic treatment.
