Using Ozone to Prevent Periodontal Diseases
There are many studies currently being run to investigate how the bacteria from periodontal diseases work inside the human body. There is enough reason to believe that the bacteria causing gum disease could cause a lot of harm to the entire body.
It is fundamental to brush the teeth with keenness. Using a smooth brush and warm water or some homemade toothpaste where possible, make sure to brush in the gum region in order to eliminate all bacteria. After this, brush the teeth using some toothpaste. The last step is to apply dental floss so as to get inside the areas where a normal toothbrush won’t get into.
Alleviating gum disease using conventional methods
Some of the patients seeking assistance from dentists have gum diseases that have gone too far and for extended periods of time the pockets that have developed, usually between 5 and 8 mm, have begun showing on the gums. Such patients require scaling treatment to stop further gum damage.
Tips for patients when employing the Ozone machine
- Only use the Ozone machine in an area that is properly ventilated.
- Make sure the Ozone machine in use has corona discharge.
- Get an Ozone machine with an internal power source. One with a capacity of 1000 milligrams/hour is quite ideal. This type can be used for about 15 minutes until the process is completed.
Gum disease warning signs
It is no surprise that most people are unaware that they contend with gum disease effects. It is important for at risk patients to know exactly what to look out for. In order to promptly identify gum disease signs and ensure overall gum and body health, look out for these signs:
- Swollen, tender, and bleeding gum
- Missing or loose teeth
- Sensitive teeth
- Some sour taste inside the mouth
- A persisting foul breath
- Red gums
- Gum recession
Ozone therapy defined
Periodontitis and Gingivitis are the most pronounced inflammatory diseases of the teeth supporting tissue. Periodontal and gingival diseases are established to be influenced by Microbial etiology and a number of host responses. Ozone is also established as having a number of biological effects owing to the immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. Ozone is therefore recommended for periodontal and gingival disease treatment.
Ozone is quite useful in the process of killing bacteria. This is the reason it is applied in medical sterilization and gum disease treatment.
Protective qualities of Ozone
Ozone has a negative charge and is made up of three oxygen atoms. The outer wall of bacteria has a positive charge. Ozone will naturally combine with bacteria. This is how Ozone attacks bacteria. It is, however, true that bacteria could be the good type and the bad type. The objective is not to eliminate every bacterium in the mouth. Good bacteria have antioxidants fashioned to repel Ozone therefore maintaining their health effects on the mouth. This will help eliminate gum disease agents hence becoming an optimal solution for diseased gums.
