How Integrative Dental Arts Uses Ozone Therapy in Dentistry
Modern dentistry is a marvel and leveraged throughout our dental practice but with the case of ozone therapy, nature is used to provide holistic dentistry that makes a marked difference in how invasive and how effective treatment options are.
Ozone therapy in dentistry leverages dental technology that provides a highly effective way to kill oral bacteria with some additional benefits as well. Oxidation lets Dr. Kathleen Carson of Integrative Dental Arts in Agoura Hills, CA, help you in a number of ways. It’s considered safe and patients love it because it’s pain-free and highly effective, often lessening the time in the dentist’s chair and with the positive effect of fewer fillings and less dental drilling, faster healing, and stronger less sensitive teeth.

Ways Integrative Dental Arts Uses Ozone Therapy
Ozone therapy is used in dentistry in a variety of ways, including:
- Restorative dentistry
- Cosmetic dentistry
- Preventative dentistry
- Treatments for Periodontitis (gum disease).
Killing Oral Bacteria
Infection control can be difficult in the mouth. Because we continually produce saliva, it can be difficult for medication to have an opportunity to work before it’s washed away. There are also places in the mouth and under the gum line that could be infected but difficult to reach, making topical medication delivery a complex problem. Ozone therapy can help significantly. Ozone therapy kills oral bacteria on contact and this can have far-reaching effects, particularly in the area of gum disease.
Gum disease is a dangerous disease that impacts about 75% of the population and it often goes undetected and untreated. Gum disease is an ongoing active infection and it has many systemic links. It can exacerbate risk of heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, as well as complicate diabetes, put a pregnancy at risk, and more.
Ozone therapy has been found to be highly successful by Dr. Kathleen Carson and the Integrative Dental Arts team, in treating oral bacteria. If you have signs of gum disease or haven’t had a gum assessment in several years or longer, contact us for a consultation.
Ozone therapy strengthens and re-calcifies teeth. This means that after ozone therapy your teeth will be stronger.
Eliminating Sensitive Teeth
Ozonation can help lower or even eliminate dental sensitivity. If you have sensitivities to hot or cold or if you’ve had sensitivity due to a dental procedure, talk to us.
Arresting Tooth Decay without Fillings
Because ozone therapy arrests infections on contact, small cavities can be treated with ozone therapy and this therapy can help with tooth retention in the case of root canals, as well. In the case of fillings, this can mean that decay is stopped early enough that a filling might not be necessary. Many dental practices that use ozone therapy use it with children with small cavities. Parents appreciate that their child’s cavity can be reversed and often without fillings.
Faster Oral Healing
Ozone therapy helps the mouth heal faster. It boosts the immune function, making it an excellent non-invasive dental treatment that can complement other dental procedures.
