Ozone therapy quickly resolves issues for our Petaluma patients
In her extensive educational pursuits, Dr. Jurina Smida
has gained a great deal of insight into the most appropriate forms of care for teeth, gums, and for the body. She is a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology and she has received a degree in Integrative and Biologic Medicine as well. Patients who visit Dental Care and Wellness of Sonoma County
benefit from her wealth of knowledge and her understanding of the most health-promoting protocols, such as ozone therapy.
Ozone is a safe substance found naturally in the environment. Ozone cleans the atmosphere of unhealthy pollution. In the body, this energized form of oxygen has astounding power to promote healing. Through innovative technology, we are able to create ozone from medical-grade oxygen. This can then be applied to numerous tissues in the mouth, including both soft and hard tissue.
Why use ozone
Historically, it has been thought that the best way to treat cavities is to remove a good portion of tooth matter. Ozone, with its almost-immediate effect on disease-causing bacteria, gives us good cause to rethink what has been taught for over a century.
Ozone is oxygen. Rather than two molecules, however, O2, ozone has three molecules. This makes it a rather unstable substance, but one that can do immense good in the body. When the substance enters tissue or the blood, the third molecule, a free radical, attaches to certain types of cells. Due to cellular makeup, healthy cells are not affected by ozone. Diseased and unhealthy cells, however, along with multiple types of pathogens, are. Whether applied in gas form, in water, or by another method, ozone fights disease in the mouth and the body.
Uses of ozone in the dental office
Considering the health-giving power of ozone, it makes sense to incorporate this substance in a multitude of treatments. Ozone may be used to treat small cavities without a need to anesthetize the area. As the third oxygen molecule kills bacteria, a remineralizing effect occurs through which tooth structure is fortified. Diseased gum tissue responds wonderfully to ozone. Depending on the magnitude of infection in gum tissue, ozone may be applied topically, used as a rinse, or it may be injected into tissues affected by advanced disease. Ozone may even be injected into bone that has become infected or into cavitations.
One of the differences between us and the few other offices that use ozone is in our injections. We don't use JUST ozone, we mix ozone WITH naturopathic remedies: traumeel, zeel, lymprymetic, folic acid, b12, and procaine, which is a natural anesthetic. Other offices in the immediate area only use ozone, which is what sets us apart from the competition.
M.A.H Therapy (Major Auto Hemotherapy with UVV.)
We use ozone therapy right in our practice. MAH Therapy is a process during which medical-grade ozone gas is injected into an individual’s blood draw, allowing it to mix and become oxygenated blood. This is then returned to the individual via an IV. Blood that is oxygenated destroys pathogens in the individual. When the process is properly performed to strict protocols, the process is safe, comfortable, and effective for the treatment of infections.
