Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

Ozone Therapy Dentist in Yadkinville NC

The modern root canal has developed into a painless procedure due to improvements in anesthetic, sedation, and techniques. However, that also does not mean you must rush into a root canal if viable options exist. One option is the use of ozone therapy in the procedure. Ozone is a naturally occurring molecule in the upper atmosphere that comprises three bonded oxygen atoms that create a negatively charged particle. The ozone molecule can be used in dentistry as gas, oil, or water in specific procedures and preventive measures.

How Does Ozone Therapy Work?

Ozone therapy consistently works with the human body. When an infection arises, white blood cells enter bacteria, which creates an oxidative burst. The reaction punctures the cell wall, and the cell dies. Ozone has the same impact on pathogens, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and other disease-causing cells. In dentistry, ozonated gas or water is used to insufflate micropores found on the tooth. Since bacteria are the heart of all infections and is destroyed through this process, there is no bothersome side-effect to the procedure.

When necessary, infections are treated by rebuilding each layer of the impacted tooth. The result is a tooth that is strengthened against the force of chewing and biting.

Ozone Uses in Dentistry

Dentists can use this procedure for several dental issues, including:


Endodontic procedures like root canals are necessary when pulp tissue becomes infected. Ozone dentistry can help disinfect the internal canal and tissue around the tip to prevent spreading.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal (gum) disease is one of the most common oral conditions that begin with asymptomatic infections in the gums that spread to the jawbone supporting the teeth. Ozone therapy has shown promise in disinfecting areas with gum infections.

TMJ Pain

Temporomandibular joints (TMJ) can be subjected to disorders that cause jaw pain and limit chewing capabilities. Ozone therapy can help relieve many of these symptoms.

Tooth Decay

Preventing and managing tooth decay is the primary concern of any dentist. Ozone’s antibacterial properties could help prevent small cavities from growing within the fissures and pits on biting surfaces.
