Dr. William E. Virtue DDS, NMD
I have been going to Dr. Virtue's dental office for many years after going to many other dentists in the area with no sucess. This practice is the TOTAL EXPERIENCE! From the time in walk in until you walk out you feel that not only are you in the best hands but that you are among experienced, caring friends. Not only do they care about their patients but about each other and it is apparent from the first visit. If you are looking for a dentist I strongly recommend Virtue Dental Care in Yadkinville. It is worth trying. Bet you can't just go one time!

Ozone dentistry in Yadkinville, NC can help with cavities and other dental problems

Ozone care is a beneficial part of dentistry. Ozone often gets a bad reputation because it is most commonly thought of in terms of the environment and air pollution, but the truth is that ozone is the Earth’s natural filter. It binds to harmful particles (such as pollutants) and that characteristic is what can make it so helpful in terms of medical and dental care.

For clinical use of ozone, the substance is made using medical grade charged oxygen. It can be used in either gas or liquid form, depending on the area and condition being treated. At Virtue Dental Care, we can use ozone when filling cavities and for gum disease.

Ozone treatment for cavities

When used in cavities, ozone works to strengthen the part of the enamel that protects the inner chamber of the tooth. This makes ozone an excellent option for treating the early sign of cavities, caused by bacteria. Bacteria are a form of microorganism that thrives inside the mouth. They are fed by debris left in the mouth (food particles and sugars). The bacteria secrete an acid that erodes tooth enamel and can damage the inner pulp of the tooth. Ozone can be used in treating dental caries and can be used in conjunction with a larger cavity that requires a composite resin filling.

Ozone treatment for gum disease

Ozone is great for treating gum disease because of its natural tendency to bind and destroy microorganisms. The symptoms of gum disease often include swelling, bleeding, inflammation, and tooth loss. For early stage gum disease, ozonated water can be used to clean out the pockets formed around the teeth where bacteria become trapped. It can also be used in a gas form along the gum tissue to kill bad organisms and stimulate healing.

Ozone therapy is just one way we provide safe, biological dentistry care for our patients. To learn more about how ozone is used in treatments, please give us a call today.
