What is ozone therapy? What about ozone therapy for periodontal disease, is it an effective treatment method?
Of course, to form an answer for the latter question, you have to know the answer to the former one. We are going to cover both in this article. Whether or not you have periodontal disease right now, the information provided can help you prepare for that eventuality.
Ozone is considered to be a purifier for the air. It occurs with oxygen – O2 – combines with an O1 which creates O3. O3 is actually ozone. Yes, yes, it sounds like a lot of chemistry based medical lingo – and it is. However, its application is not quite so complicated. The main thing to remember is that ozone is able to oxidize any and all pollution with which it comes in contact.
To create ozone in a medical environment, medical grade O2 has to be exposed to simulated lightning. Typically, this occurs with the help of a generator which releases a field of electric discharge.
Ozone can also be created at home with a home ozonator.
Through various chemical reactions and such, when ozone is released into the body, it will quickly disappear. As it does so, it reverts back into oxygen. At that point, it will then increase the oxygen in your body, which turns it into an extremely powerful oxidant. That oxidant can jump start your body’s antioxidant system.
One of the things it can do through this process is kill bacteria – which is, of course, the primary cause behind periodontal disease. It can also boost your immune system, which also helps in fighting off the bacteria which causes all forms of gum disease.
It is believed that ozone therapy can be helpful with a number of other serious health problems as well, for much the same reason it is helpful in treating periodontal disease. Its effects are largely debated but there is a lot of evidence point to the fact that it can and will kill the various bacteria which leads to tooth and gum disease.
