Ozone Therapy In Dental Practice
Ozone in dentistry is widely accepted and used in daily dental practice in almost all dental applications. The irrefutable disinfection power of ozone, when compared with other standard antiseptics, makes ozone’s dental usage highly suitable.
Recent clinical and research studies on ozone’s utility in treating early tooth caries without cavitations are highly encouraging. In fact, they reveal that it is now possible to stop and reverse these lesions in a repeatable and predictable way without invasive intervention—making these findings revolutionary in dentistry.
Given its powerful advantages, Dr. Amy Khajavi, at Excellence Dental, uses ozone therapy while offering dental solutions such as dental surgery, dental implants, aesthetic dentistry, orthodontics, TMJ, and oral surgery.
Patients need to be aware that ozone can be used in dental procedures in three forms—water, gas, and oil. Though gas, till recently, was not recommended for intra-oral use due to safety concerns. Only ozone dissolved in water and ozonated oils were and still used regularly in various fields of dentistry. But with the advent of a foot pedal-activated dental handpiece, which has a suction feature, ozone gas can now be safely used in situations where diffusion is crucial such as for dental hard tissues.
Use Of Ozone In Clinical Procedures
In operative dentistry, ozone therapy is performed depending on clinical cases. The combination of operative and minimally invasive diagnostic equipment, and ozone, is valuable in treating dental problems.
Surgery And Extraction
In dental surgery, ozone’s use is recommended during and after the surgery to serve as a topical disinfectant and an agent for healing. In surgical procedures, following final debridement of the socket, dentists use large amounts of ozonated water for irrigation, and then apply gauze dipped in ozonated water to compress the extraction site.
Implant Removable Dentures
Among the wearers of full dentures, denture stomatitis is a common occurrence primarily due to Candida albicans. Ozone use, especially ozonated water and oil, is highly efficient in cleaning and disinfecting the dentures’ acrylic material.
Instruments Cold Disinfection
Ozonated water can be used as a cold disinfection solution for dental and medical instruments, and also for disinfection of countertops of cabinets. It can also be used as hands wash disinfectant solution, for contact lenses, fiber optic tips, and surgical loupes lenses.

Metal Free Dental Implants
When an all-ceramic dental crown is placed over an all-ceramic dental implant, it appears and functions just like normal teeth, and offers excellent reasons for ceramic to be used as a dental implant. Use of ceramic implants causes the least damage to the immune system.See more
CeraRoot Dental Implants
The CeraRoot Dental Implant is an efficient dental solution to replace missing teeth or tooth that may require replacement. The CeraRoot is made from zirconia oxide, which is a ceramic and has proven advantages over traditional metal implants.See more
Ceramic Zirconia Implants
The shape of CeraRoot ceramic zirconium dental implants is tooth-shaped, and they have a natural tooth-like flair and emergence profile—eliminating the food trap issue, which is a problem with titanium implants.See more
Sinus Lift – Piezotome
The Piezotome, which incorporates piezoelectric instruments, is widely and successfully used in dentistry. Numerous clinical studies support its effectiveness and behind its success lies the modulated piezo signal, which allows a clean cut, tissue relaxation, and ideal cell repair and healing.See more
Sedation dentistry uses medicines to help patients remain relaxed during the entire dental procedure. Sedation prevents the feeling of pain and the ability to remember the procedure once completed.See more
Bone Grafting PRGF Factors
PRGF is a breakthrough technique in bone and soft tissue regeneration as it encourages the body to use its full potential of the normal healing pathways—but at a vastly accelerated rate.See more
All-on-4 Dental Implants
The bone fusing feature of the All-on-4 not only ensures that your implants are perpetually fixed in place, but they also prevent future bone loss in the jaw. Both benefits provide a more youthful facial structure—and improved oral health.See more
