A holistic dentist is a dental professional who focuses on ensuring patients have access to treatments and services that are most appropriate for their specific needs. This includes integrating treatment options into specific dental treatments, such as the ozone generator. Our team of professionals, including Dr. Judith A. Whitcomb, explain to patients the advantages and health benefits of ozone generators used with common dental treatments to achieve a healthy smile!
What is ozone?
When told about ozone, many patients immediately think of the ozone layer being affected by pollution. Ozone is a form of oxygen that can be used in dentistry to address issues such as:
- Healing after surgeries
- Periodontal disease
Our dentists at Nashua Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry, PLLC is here to help patients in achieving smiles free from disease and bacteria without the need for antibiotics whenever possible. With the use of an ozone generator, patients can enjoy ozone therapy right in the dental office with the guidance of our team to combat these issues. This eliminates the need for pharmaceuticals and provides a more holistic approach to oral health and wellness. Many of our patients love how easy and non-invaisve this treatment is as it is completed in the dental chair with our staff.
How does an ozone generator work?
The ozone generator provides the ozone gas that is then administered through to the mouth via a special mouthpiece that is worn by the patient. Patients relax in the chair as a specific period of time is used to provide the ozone gas and ensure treatment is successful. Our patients can have this treatment combined with most any dental services and can undergo ozone therapy even during their routine appointments for cleanings and examinations. Ozone has been used in dentistry for many years to achieve healthy smiles and maintain them for many years to come.
What are the health benefits of ozone?
The primary benefit is the ability to keep the smile healthy by treating issues such as bacteria and viruses. This is most important when it come stop patients who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a condition that can develop due to poor oral hygiene. It is an infection caused by bacteria that is found in the mouth. With the use of ozone therapy, patients are able to combat this bacteria in a way that has never been done before and bring the smile back to health over time with regular treatments. Once this has been achieved, then patients can continue using ozone therapy to maintain the results. Additionally, we find that offering ozone treatment after certain dental procedures and surgeries can also facilitate faster healing.
Who is a candidate for ozone therapy?
Ozone therapy is a natural substance, so patients will not experience problems such as allergic reactions to it. This holistic option is for anyone who wants to address bacteria or viruses within the smile, and for those who are interested in faster healing from certain dental procedures. Dr. Judith A. Whitcomb can walk patients through the health benefits of using ozone therapy and then explain the process of obtaining it in the dental office. There is often an additional cost for this treatment, and this can be discussed with our patients when they call for a consultation appointment and initial evaluation. We recommend patients ask about this treatment and learn more about it so they can decide if they would like to integrate it into their dental treatment plans. We encourage patients to learn more with our team of professionals.
