Dr. Stan Kovtun can help patients in understanding the many benefits of integrating ozone into treatments and how it can completely change the way patients look at dental care.
What is ozone therapy?
Ozone is a specialized type of oxygen known as O3. It is formed when oxygen splits and is then met with an electric charge. This makes ozone a powerful oxidant that can be used by dentists to address a variety of pathogens in the oral cavity that can contribute to the development of periodontal disease and more!
Over the years, many professionals in the medical community have been utilizing ozone for the treatment of wounds and found it to not only be natural but free from side effects and completely safe. Patients will not experience problems after ozone therapy, and they will not experience any allergic reactions.
Understanding the use of ozone therapy
Ozone therapy is administered to patients for a variety of purposes. It can help in:
- Healing wounds and lesions
- Reducing bacteria causing periodontal disease
- Improving results from root canal therapy
- Improving the health of the natural soft tissues in the mouth
- Facilitating faster healing from dental procedures
- Disinfecting many areas of the mouth when used as a mouth rinse

We do not reuse the mouthpieces for any other patients as they are customized for each individual to utilize. We provide proper disinfection before and after each use.
