Dr. Ratna Indah of Dental Arts of Mountain View is one of only a couple of hundred dentists in North America that uses ozone treatment. Her specialized approach to holistic dentistry is designed to prevent the need for complex treatments and costly procedures!
The Ozone Revolution in Dentistry
Ozone protects our skin from harmful rays and is also effective at fighting bacteria, viruses, and disease. Our own bodies produce ozone to fight off illnesses. In holistic dentistry, ozone is used to kill the bacteria that cause dental decay, also called cavities, naturally and without harmful side effects. Ozone treats dental disease without pain, for comfortable treatments and healthy outcomes!
Ozone is made up of three oxygen atoms (O3). In nature, it is simple to produce ozone. When sunlight meets air, the result is ozone. In dentistry, it requires an energetic reaction to join an oxygen singlet (O) with an oxygen molecule (O2).
While ozone treatment is considered a “new technology,” it has actually been used in dentistry since the 1930s. The reason it is becoming more popular today is that ozone delivery systems are safer, more effective, and quickly advancing.
Dental Ozone Therapy in Mountain View, CA
Ozone therapy is used to treat a variety of dental conditions, including:
- Treatment of periodontal disease
- Cavity prevention and remineralization of enamel
- Healing promotion of cold and canker sores
- Removal of pre-cancerous lesions
- Removing infection during root canal treatment
With regular dental checkups, cleanings, and x-rays, we can detect conditions in their earliest stages when ozone dental procedures are particularly effective. As with all types of dentistry, Dr. Indah's goal is to prevent disease or treat it while it is still in the early stages. This benefits your health and your wallet. Minimally invasive dentistry is typically the healthiest and most affordable option.
How Dental Ozone Therapy Works
Dr. Indah has a special dental hand piece fitted with a suction cup at the end. Once the suction cup seals to the tooth, ozone is released to eradicate bacteria and begin the remineralization process. In cases of periodontal disease, a full arch tray will fit over teeth and gums and ozone will treat the entire area at once.
Ozone is a therapeutic treatment, and multiple visits might be necessary to achieve the best results. For advanced caries (decay), ozone is used with a tooth filling or dental crown to seal the tooth and protect it from additional decay.
