I wrote not too long ago about the uses of ozone in root canal therapy. After the cavity has progressed too far and affects the tooth’s root, nerves (that’s the “ouch” factor), and sensitive life-giving anatomy, a root canal is required to clean out and seal off the damage. The highest level of sterilization is crucial to a successful root canal, as you are permanently sealing off the tooth and preserving its strength for the rest of your life.
Ozone makes the sterilization job easy… using ozone gas or ozonated water, we can continuously “wash off” the tooth being operated on in a safe, drug-less, bacteria/germ-free environment. Ozone even speeds up the process, providing us with health benefits enough to quicken healing and recovery. Less pain is experienced, and it will not cause any side effects.
But, still, brush and floss your teeth consistently so you can avoid cavities and the whole root canal scenario in the first place…
