Ozone Generator

Many people are aware of the use of ozone in swimming pools and hot tubs to kill bacteria and algae without the use of harmful chemicals, but most are not aware that ozone has come to medicine and dentistry. Medical uses for ozone have primarily been developed overseas, but the dental uses for ozone have been pioneered in the United States and are now being taught worldwide.

Ozone is “energized oxygen”, created by passing a current through medical-grade oxygen. Because ozone is O3, and the only ingredient is oxygen, there is no one who is allergic to ozone, and this appeals to biologic dentists and doctors. Also, because of the extra energy carried in the ozone molecule, ozone has dynamic properties:

  1. Ozone is bactericidal, fungicidal, virucidal, and kills parasites. It also penetrates the biofilm that these organisms live in.
  2. Ozone is a powerful circulatory stimulant.
  3. Ozone induces immunologic up-regulation.

We are pleased to have an ozone generator in our office. Dr. Bloss incorporates the use of ozone into daily dental care. It can be used to treat: cavities, infections, periodontal disease, root canal therapy, and soft tissue lesions.
