Ozone is a gas found naturally in the atmosphere. This gas kills bacteria, viruses and fungi within 5 seconds and because of this it is often used to control infections in hospitals. That also makes it very useful in dentistry for killing the bacteria that cause decay and gum disease. During this revolutionary new treatment, a small laser determines whether decay-forming bacteria are present in a tooth, and if they are, a small handheld unit delivers the ozone to the spot, where it kills the bacteria instantly. A special mineral-rich liquid is then applied to the area, helping to reverse the decay process. And that’s it – there are no injections, fillings, drilling or damage to your teeth! Research shows that in 96% of cases, the decay had stopped or reversed. With ozone treatment, the need for drilling and filling is drastically reduced, and may revolutionise dentistry.
