Citrus Heights area dentist offers revolutionary approach to treat and prevent dental problems: ozone therapy

dentist offers revolutionary approach to treat and prevent dental problems

You may associate ozone with the part of the earth’s stratosphere responsible for protecting the planet from harmful pollutants.

Ozone has been used for many decades for beneficial applications ranging from food preservation to water treatment. Ozone as a medical therapy can be traced back to the 1800s. Dentists first used it in Europe in the 1930s. While it may be a new therapy to you, it has a proven record as an effective and safe healer.

What is it exactly?

The term “energized” or “super” oxygen is apt, because ozone is a highly reactive form of oxygen containing three atoms. The “energetic” part comes from its wanting to kick off an atom, returning it to the more stable oxygen.

When this process occurs, wonderful things happen. The oxygen shed as part of this process is forced beneath the tooth’s surface. Bacteria behind early-stage decay are killed before progressing to cavities or other dental problems. It sets off a process that includes the removal of bacterial waste to halt the continued progression of existing cavities.

You don’t have to worry about the safety of ozone therapy. The Sacramento Natural Dentistry team can confidently say this approach is not toxic, because your body produces ozone naturally. White blood cells make ozone to kill harmful disease or infection causing pathogens.

This type of therapy harnesses an understanding of how the body heals itself naturally, so oxygen has been called the world’s most powerful medicine.

How is it used the dental office?

Energized oxygen in therapy comes in two forms:

  • Liquid
  • Gas

Ozone may be administered without anesthetic. It can be added to water and liquids such as olive oil or jojoba to create an antimicrobial compound, ozonide.

The gas may be delivered safely through a custom handpiece to treat one tooth at a time. Custom-made trays treat many teeth at once.

Since ozone is biocompatible, even the littlest patients can benefit.

How can it help oral health?

Name a condition and ozone therapy may help, a feature that makes it the perfect fit with a biological and integrative practice like Sacramento Natural Dentistry. Ozonated water as a pretreatment rinse disinfects the mouth. Gas may be used in periodontal pockets susceptible to gum disease. Custom trays may treat tissues and prevent or stop the progression of decay and cavities.

Ozone therapy’s wound healing and immune response attributes have been applied to root canal treatment, and the treatment of:

  • Sensitive teeth
  • Canker sores
  • Cold sores
  • Bone infections

New applications are arising all the time. One day you might even be able to get a “whole-mouth ozone treatment.” Imagine a natural remedy that beautifies teeth while maintaining gum health and reducing the risk of cavities.

It is used in other areas of medicine to treat conditions ranging from macular degeneration, diabetes, and joint damage to chronic pain, herpes, and hepatitis. As a holistic dentist, Sacramento Natural Dentistry knows some of the medical conditions listed here are linked to the inflammation and bacteria associated with gum disease. You cannot talk about oral health without addressing overall wellness.

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!
