Treatment of dental caries with ozone
Dentists spend most of their time givingtreatment of dental caries. This disease is one of the most common. Therapy depends on the form and extent of the disease.

Features of ozonotherapy
The essence of dental caries treatment with ozone isthe following: ozone itself is a strong oxidizer, it easily penetrates into the affected areas of the tooth without affecting healthy tissues. Treatment with ozone leads to the death of disease-causing bacteria. The substance sterilizes the dental tissues. Ozone also prevents the recurrence of caries.

It is useful to know that ozone therapy is effective not only in the treatment of the initial stage of caries. Ozone is often used for sterilization of the dental cavity after removal of damaged tissues. In addition, they can sterilize the tooth canals before installing the seal.

The essence of the treatment is the generation of ozone by the device. Using a tip with a silicone nozzle, it is fed to the cavity of the damaged tooth.

1. Absence of allergic manifestations.
2. Complete sterilization of the tooth.
3. The speed of the procedure. The process of treatment takes no more than half a minute.
A big plus in ozone treatment is thatpatients prone to allergies may not be afraid of this method. During the procedure, ozone is not released into the environment.

With the help of the device, successful treatmentcaries of teeth in the stage of stain, caries of the initial, as well as fissure caries. Ozone is also often used to treat medium and deep caries. Due to the effect of ozone, pathogenic microscopic organisms, fungal damage and viruses are effectively destroyed.
