What Is Ozone?
Ozone is 3 molecules of Oxygen coupled together. It is a naturally occurring substance produced by sunlight, and in plasma cells. It is a naturally occurring substance in the human immune system and leaves behind no toxic by-products. One molecule of O3 has more oxidizing power than 3000 molecules of chlorine and kills pathogens 3500x faster than chlorine with no toxic by products. It kills Bacteria, Viruses, is Fungicidal and promotes wound healing. It is effective in treating vascular and degenerative diseases. It also increases tissue oxygenation and signals healing pathways in the body.
At Bechtel Dentistry, Dental Ozone Therapy is incorporated into all of our dental procedures, including treating gum disease, restorative dentistry, and oral surgery to enhance our treatments for the benefit of our patients’ oral health. Dr. Bechtel provides patients with a consultation on Dental Ozone Therapy to help discover whether adding ozone therapy to your dental health care would be beneficial.
We are experiencing an increased demand from patients requesting Dental Ozone Therapy because its holistic, conservative, painless, minimally invasive, and can dramatically decrease healing time.

What Is Dental Ozone Therapy?
Ozone Therapy is an advanced and scientifically backed approach to dentistry with the ability to kill harmful bacteria that can lead to gum disease or cavities in your mouth. Ozone is a form of oxygen with the unique ability to disinfect. When used in dentistry this harmless, helpful gas is powerful enough to help us as a natural antibiotic. It has gained significant attention as bacteria become more and more antibiotic-resistant.
The Benefits Of Dental Ozone Therapy
Dental Ozone Therapy provides a safe and holistic dentistry treatment option for our patients who are suffering from a number of oral problems. We are able to remove harmful bacteria without resorting to the use of other products that can have toxic and unhealthy side-effects. Ozone’s therapeutic value over the years is vast, there may be more we have yet to discover. As time goes on, our understanding of ozone and its potential medical benefits continues to grow and progress. Many scientists believe that ozone therapy may have potential as a:
● Option for improving blood flow and circulation
● Neuro-endocrine system stimulant
● Virucidal and fungicidal agent

What Can Be Treated with Dental Ozone Therapy?
If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional dentistry, ozone therapy may be a good option. Dental Ozone Therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that can be used to help treat a number of oral health issues including:
● Tooth cavities and dental decay
● Gum disease/periodontal disease
● Tooth sensitivity
● Oral infections
● Root canal infections
● Other oral health concerns
During a dental cleaning, ozone can be used to irrigate the pockets and cavities and the mouth, in order to eliminate harmful bacteria. Using ozone therapy during dental surgery or a tooth extraction can help disinfect the area and may also possibly reduce the risk of scarring as well as expedite healing.
