OZONE - Globally revolutionising dentistry Recently featured on TV One News, this new technology is taking the dental world by storm.
HealOzone is a revolutionary new technology for the safe and effective, pain free treatment of decay with ozone.
WHAT IS OZONE?
Ozone is a form of oxygen. It is that fresh clean smell that you find at high altitudes and after thunderstorms
WHAT IS OZONE USED FOR?
Ozone has been used for many years to purify drinking water. It kills all bacteria, viruses and fungi within seconds. It is being successfully used in medicine to treat acne, eczema and many other conditions.
HOW CAN HEAL OZONE HELP MY TEETH?
With the use of a small laser called the DIAGNOdent, we can now identify decay in and under the enamel surface. If new decay is found, ozone is applied by placing a small rubber cup over the tooth. This procedure is painless.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Decay is caused by acid excreting bacteria living on the tooth surface. If they are fed carbohydrates, acid is produced, and this eats away at the tooth minerals. The ozone kills all the acid producing bacteria, and allows your body to heal the decay itself. This process is aided by the patient placing minerals that the body needs to repair decay, on the tooth. After four weeks, the decay should be completely healed. (The DIAGNOdent laser is used to verify this).
DO I FEEL ANYTHING?
HealOzone treatment is completely painless. Note that for large holes (ones that can be seen on Xrays) conventional treatment such as sandblasting may be needed in conjunction with HealOzone in order for ozone to reach the deeper areas of decay.
WHO IS GOING TO BENEFIT?
Almost everyone from children (who may now never need a real filling) right through to the elderly where ozone is used on exposed root surfaces that have decay.
IS IT SAFE?
Over one million treatments have been performed in Britain alone (where this technology was developed) with not a single side effect reported.
