Rating: 5 Dermatologist Walnut Creek - Five Star Reviews By James W.
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!

We offer our patients in NC the benefits of ozone treatment for periodontal disease
The word ozone is typically used in terms of the atmosphere and air pollution; however, it actually has powerful medical uses as well. Ozone is what protects the skin from the UV rays that can cause skin cancer; it can be used to sterilize water, in purification systems, and even in swimming pools.

The reason ozone is heard of most often in terms of atmospheric pollution is because it binds with pollutants, acting as a natural filter. Since it binds to the pollutants, ozone levels are measured to give an idea of pollution levels.

Recently there has been an influx of information about ozone uses in dentistry. This is because medical applications of ozone have been found to be safe with almost zero side effects. Our bodies naturally produce ozone in white blood cells to kill microorganisms. Ozone has a negative charge, which means it naturally attracts cells with a positive charge such as bacteria, viruses, and free radicals. This process makes ozone very effective to help treat the bacteria and infection that comes along with periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease has a direct impact on general health. As a biological dental practice, we want to make sure that our patients’ mouths and bodies are healthy. While our number one goal is to help prevent occurrences of periodontal disease, we also want our patients to have treatments that they can count on. Any time we treat periodontal disease we make sure that any steps taken are safe for the patient and minimize risks for future problems.

Periodontal disease can be a complicated issue and we always begin by thoroughly examining the teeth and gums before developing a treatment plan.

In most cases, one of the main forms of treatment for periodontal disease is a deep cleaning to remove infection and bacteria from the pockets around the teeth. While this is often a successful method, we also offer patients the benefits of ozone therapy.

Ozone can be administered in either water or gas form and can destroy the bacteria that cause gum disease. If you would like more information on ozone treatment and other forms of biological dentistry, contact our team today.
