Ozone used in dental treatments improves patient outcomes at Citrus Heights, CA, practice

Ozone used in dental treatments

Patients at Sacramento Natural Dentistry are treated with biocompatible and natural substances. These are chosen because of the benefits that they offer to patients and their lack of harmful side effects. One method of treatment that is not common to all dental practices is oxygen or ozone therapy. Ever noticed the unique scent when visiting a waterfall, or even during a storm when lightning strikes? This is a sign of naturally-occurring ozone.

Dental ozone is produced with specialized equipment and used in dental settings to assist in destruction of harmful bacteria commonly found in the mouth. In household settings, diluted chlorine or bleach is effective when used as an antibacterial cleaning product. In comparison, one molecule of ozone takes less than one second to kill harmful bacteria, compared to 3000 seconds if chlorine is used. Ozone gives the dentist a safe way to destroy bacteria, which are the culprits for infections in the mouth. Instead of bombarding a person’s entire body with antibiotics that are not needed, ozone is targeted to the exact area of infection to do its work. This fits into holistic dentistry, as the patient’s entire body benefits.

We are always looking for ways to safely and effectively improve services for our valued patients. Ozone therapy provides an added dimension to traditional dental procedures. Ozone can be administered during root canals, for treatment of cavities, in dental surgery, and to improve outcomes in treating gum disease. Patients may also experience relief through ozone therapy for sensitive teeth and roots, as well as to speed healing for canker sores or cold sores of the mouth. It can be administered in the form of a gas or liquid. In these forms, it can reach into small areas and eliminate bacteria that would cause infection to spread.

The use of ozone also contributes to the cleanliness of the dental office environment because of its ability to sterilize. It also effectively removes bacteria, also known as biofilm, that could form in the hoses that deliver and suction water during dental procedures. Benefits abound without interfering with patient health or any adverse reactions to the natural product. Within a holistic dental office, everything is designed to be safe that touches the patient. Ozone therapy allows the patient an improved overall procedure because harmful elements are eliminated that would normally remain to cause problems. This is a safe and simple process that will lead to increased patient comfort and better outcomes from dental procedures.

Patients in and around Citrus Heights, CA, are encouraged to call us with any questions regarding our use of ozone therapy, or to schedule an appointment for the healthiest dental experience. We look forward to the opportunity to contribute to your oral health, and to have a positive impact on your overall health.

I want to give a recommendation for a natural dentist to anyone seeking a holistic leaning dentist, or any dentistry at all for that matter. I had a dental emergency due to several cavities that ended up being put on hold because of the virus shutdown. Living in Tahoe, the options of which dentists I had to choose from was short, and all of them were closed still. Over the last month I wound up with severe tooth pain from the bacteria in the cavities that very nearly became systemic. Two days ago I searched google for a natural dentist in Sacramento and the first one that was open and actually answered their phone was the good people at Sacramento Natural Dentistry. I explained to them my predicament and they got me an appointment yesterday at two o'clock. (Next day appointment after being closed for two months!) After taking x-rays and seeing the severity of the condition, I was offered a choice in treatment options. Yes you heard that right, a choice as to which procedures best fit my life situation. After a conversation about my options, some lidocaine was administered and 3 cavities were filled with precision and amazing efficiency followed by an extraction of a tooth that we determined was beyond being worth saving. The staff was helpful and kind and treated me with respect. The dentist who performed the procedure, Dr. Darryl Azouz who has twenty two years experience in dentistry, was patient and attentive, professional and very personable. I immediately noticed his authenticity and genuine care for others. Throughout the procedure we conversed and I really must say that overall it was the most pleasant time I've ever had in a dentists chair. Any of you out there who are looking for good holistic dental care at a fair price as well as a heart based approach, I can tell you that he and his team were well worth my drive from Tahoe for a visit. I am grateful to have found them and will return for future dental work without hesitation. Keep safe and many blessings.

I love this office! Dr. Azouz is the best dentist my family has ever had. I have had nothing but positive experiences every time I have had anything done in this office. I have referred several friends and family and all have been so happy with Dr. Azouz. My kids now love going to the dentist and I appreciate how good Dr. Azouz and the staff are with them. This is an office you will not be disappointed in, and is great for all ages!
