Are you familiar with ozone therapy? You may immediately think of the ozone layer, but this type of therapy is also beneficial for your mouth. Ozone therapy is a strong approach to getting rid of oral infections by killing all types of bacteria.
When it is used for the treatment of cavities, ozone can kill any leftover bacteria in a healthy tooth so that a new cavity does not emerge. Furthermore, it can kill viruses that lead to those pesky, painful fever blisters and canker sores.
For dental purposes, ozone is effective against periodontitis and gingivitis. In a healthy nerve, it may be able to repair teeth with structural damage caused by decay if the bacteria is killed and the area is properly sealed against additional bacteria. This means there is less of a chance for having to take drastic measures such as a root canal. A dentist will kill the bacteria and use modern bonding techniques to seal the surface of the tooth against new bacterial infection.
