Ozone Treatment for Oral Infections and More at Boston Dental Wellness
Iveta Iontcheva-Barehmi, D.M.D., M.S., D.Sc., of Boston Dental Wellness Advanced Concept Dental Care, in Brookline, has added oxygen/ozone therapy to her practice for treatment of oral infections and more. Iontcheva-Barehmi, who also performs periodontal medicine, laser and mercury-free dentistry and implants, says that oxygen/ozone therapy has a long history of research and clinical application with patients. “Ozone is a naturally occurring chemical compound and a powerful oxidizer that effectively kills bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites at a dramatically lower concentration than chlorine,” she says. “One molecule of ozone kills pathogenic microorganisms 3,500 faster than 10,000 molecules of chlorine, with no known side effects.”
Iontcheva-Barehmi says that oxygen/ozone therapy is used in dentistry to eliminate pathogens, restore proper oxygen metabolism, increase circulation and stimulate the immune system. “It can be used as an adjunctive therapy in the treatment of periodontitis and dentinal hypersensitivity, and for cleaning and sterilizing canals during root canal treatments with no toxicity or side effects,” she adds.
