NATURALLY, PROTECT YOUR SMILE & BODY AGAINST INFECTION
Ozone Therapy: A Minimally Invasive Technique for Simple or Surgical Oral Treatments
Modern dentistry is a marvel and leveraged throughout Aria Dental but with the case of ozone therapy, nature is used to provide the holistic & biological dentistry that makes a remarkable difference in oral and overall health.
As a certified holistic & biological dental office in Orange County, we proudly utilize different applications of ozone (O3) therapy during simple to surgical dental treatments to eliminate pharmaceutical drugs and their side effects.
WHAT IS DENTAL OXYGEN / OZONE (O3) THERAPY?
Some people have the misconception that Ozone is a pollutant and wonder if it is safe at all; they are often mistakenly referred to as a pollutant and think it is unhealthy. The opposite is true. Ozone (O3) is a naturally occurring and energized form of Oxygen; it is extremely safe, effective, and non-toxic to human cells but disintegrates the cell wall of pathogenic or “disease-causing” microorganisms what we call infection. These pathogenic microorganisms live together in what is called a biofilm. This biofilm supports a mixed type of infection made of bacteria, fungi, yeast, viruses, and parasites. The greatest holistic approach to ozone therapy is that kill “disease-causing” microorganisms without damaging any healthy tissues.
IS OZONE THERAPY SAFE?
YES. Ozone and oxygen therapy is proven for centuries to be a safe and natural treatment for the human body with no toxic or side effects associated with pharmaceutical drugs.
common facts about treatment with ozone
HOW DOES OXYGEN / OZONE THERAPY WORK?
Ozone has a chemical composition of O3; Oxygen has a chemical composition of O2. The extra oxygen in O3 makes ozone to be bioactive and a potent oxidant. The extra oxygen in O3 carries an electro-negative charge; all infection carries a positive charge, and healthy human cells are electro-neutral hence O3 is naturally attracted to the source of infection.
When ozone is introduced into a living system, it reacts with biomolecules (PUFA, antioxidants) present in the plasma; the reaction yields hydrogen peroxide (among other possible ROS) and liquid oxidation products (LOPS). The sudden rise in plasma concentration of hydrogen peroxide generates what is called a “transient oxidative burst”. The infective microorganisms have no natural defense against oxidative burst and as a result, they die.
The oxidative burst exhibits antimicrobial actions and induces a multitude of natural biochemical and physiologic reactions:
It stimulates better blood flow, amplifies immune responses, and speeds up more rapid healing responses while decreasing the risk of post-surgical infections.
BENEFITS OF OXYGEN / OZONE THERAPY?
infection and inflammation. Here are some of the benefits of ozone:
WAYS OZONE THERAPY USED
TOWARD INTEGRATIVEDENTALL APPROACHES
Staying within the accepted standard of care, with proper application, oxygen/ozone can naturally enhance the outcomes of many dental treatments without the use of pharmaceutical drugs and associated side effects.
Different types of applications of ozone therapy can be used to kill microorganisms naturally and non-invasively without damaging healthy tissues.

WHAT IS OZONE USED FOR?
Ozone therapy is used in dentistry in a variety of ways, including:
