Ozone or Trioxygen (3 Oxygen atoms) has unique therapeutic benefits:
- Ozone works by enhancing our natural body defences and improving healing. Patients with chronic infections like chronic gum conditions have inflammation at the site, obstructing blood circulation, thus decreasing the amount of oxygen and consequently impeding healing. When Ozone comes in contact with tissues a phenomenon called “oxidative burst” happens, which induces natural and physiologic reactions like better blood flow, enhanced immune response, and a more rapid healing reaction.
- Oxidative burst also destroys all the nasty microorganisms including drug-resistant bacteria. It can therefore be used safely to disinfect anything from wounds and surgical sites to bench tops and floors.
