Oxygen / ozone is found in Earth’s atmosphere. It has been used for many years to
sterilize instruments and purify water. Ozone is a potent oxidant. Many gum infections
are caused by anaerobic micro-organisms. Anaerobes are killed by the ozone. Ozone
also kills the bacteria that cause tooth decay. Ozone therapy can be used in our battle
against dental disease, including dental decay and periodontal disease.
