Ozone Dental Therapy in Carrollton, TX
Although relatively new to the Carrollton, TX, area, ozone dental therapy has been used for years in Europe and other countries outside the United States to effectively treat and prevent tooth decay and cavities. Also called “ozonotherapy”, ozone dental treatments in the hands of a highly trained general dentist like Dr. Sirishi Bhandaru at Carrollton Smiles can help regenerate healthy tooth and gum tissues, and prevent future lesions caused by harmful bacteria and other microbes normally found in the human mouth.

How Does Ozone Dental Therapy Work?
Each ozone (O3) particle has a negative charge. Potentially harmful microbes in your mouth, including bacteria, fungi and viruses, all have a positive charge. The negatively charged ozone particles seek out those periodontal disease-causing microbes, bind to them, and then quickly neutralize and destroy them. In fact, studies have found that ozone is up to 8,000 times more effective than chlorine in killing harmful bacteria!
In the comfort of our office, Dr. Bhandaru uses an ozone generator, ozonated saline, and dental instrument hose attachments, to safely and precisely deliver ozone particles to tooth and gum tissues where they will be most effective. The only bi-products of ozone are oxygen, so there are zero known side effects with its use. Within the past few years, we have seen some amazing tissue restoring and periodontal disease preventing outcomes using ozonotherapy!
