Ozone therapy puts the power of excited oxygen to work for Sacramento, CA patients

Dr. Azouz Darry in Sacramento Natural Dentistry explains how ozone therapy puts the power of excited oxygen to work

As a biological dental practice, Sacramento Natural Dentistry is committed to educating patients about healthier treatment options. Ozone therapy is a terrific example. Most people in don’t know what ozone is, how it is related to oxygen, or what makes it beneficial to patients in Sacramento, CA and across the world.

Understanding O3

 Ozone, with the chemical symbol O3, is a variant of oxygen (O2). Ozone is sometimes called excited oxygen, because ozone molecules are continually trying to kick off the extra atom. This results in the effect called oxidation.

Healthy cells in the body contain antioxidant enzymes, a protection against oxidation. However, pathogens – disease producing agents such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites – have cell structures lacking antioxidant enzymes. Thus, exposure to ozone destroys their cell membranes, resulting in disinfection.

Benefits of ozone therapy in dental treatment

Ozone therapy is ideal for treatment of periodontal disease, as well as many other oral disturbances. As just a few examples, Dr. Azouz uses ozone to sterilize an extraction site, reduce sensitivity when decay is close to a nerve, or eradicate infection in a pus-filled abscess.

Gum disease is a biofilm infection, a complex aggregation of harmful microorganisms (bacteria) growing on a solid surface (mouth tissues). The source of infection and inflammation is acidic, which carries a positive charge. Because ozone is negatively charged, infection attracts it. This chemistry makes application of ozonated water or ozone gas extremely efficient and effective.

  • Ozone therapy is painless.
  • Ozone sterilization leaves no toxic byproducts in the mouth.
  • Ozone kills pathogens 3,500 times faster than chlorine, with no side effects.
  • Healthy cells are not harmed by therapeutic application of ozone.
  • It treats the cause of oral health problems, rather than fixing a symptom.
  • Ozone can be used proactively to promote a healthy balance of flora in the mouth, instead of approaching dentistry as damage control.

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.
