Ozone therapy can be used for a range of dental applications, and we incorporate this advanced technology at South Ogden Smiles to enhance many treatments for the benefit our patients' oral health. Using a high-tech machine that creates ozone particles, Dr. Patrick Tanner can harden enamel, eradicate disease-causing bacteria, and sterilize our water, among other uses. Ozone is a safe particle that can be incorporated into a gas, liquid, or ointment, and we are proud to be one of only three dentistry offices in the state to offer this revolutionary treatment.

Ozone is used to treat patients in a variety of ways, including the ability to disinfect water lines without the use of chemicals. Ozone leads to residue, and is a great advancement in the medical field that allows us to keep water lines pure, safe, and sanitized. We can also use Ozone at our South Ogden, Utah, practice while removing cavities to stimulate new growth and promote optimal health.
When an oxygen molecule binds with a third oxygen atom, an ozone molecule is produced. The addition of an oxygen atom creates a negatively charged molecule that wants to bond with positively charged molecules. Many of the dangerous, disease-causing cells that exist within our mouths and throughout our bodies have a negative charge. Because ozone is drawn to these cells, it can effectively perforate their exteriors and destroy them.
At South Ogden Smiles, we harness the benefits of this process to help rid your body of substances like decay, periodontal disease, and more. Our specialized ozone machine uses oxygen to create liquid ozone, or ozonated water, and a gas. Ozonated water is much cleaner than distilled water, and can kill bacteria, fungus, and any other negative substances on our instruments, machines, and within the water that is used during treatment. The gas form may be used during root canal therapy or sinus treatment to kill bacteria in hard-to-reach places.
Ozone therapy has been safely used in many areas of medicine for nearly 100 years. There are many ways we can implement ozone, including:
Regardless of whether you are in need of restoration or a simple cleaning, ozone therapy can enhance your quality of care for a healthy, beautiful smile.
