Periodontal Treatment with Ozone in San Diego
Periodontal disease is mainly caused by an accumulation of plaque which is a sticky film of food and bacteria that forms around your teeth. Untreated periodontal disease can result in the loss of teeth. The definition of periodontal disease is a “chronic bacterial infection that affects the gum and bone supporting the teeth.” Also, it is a fact that the “infection” can be viral, fungal and parasitic. Since ozone therapy effectively kills bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites, then it can be effective in controlling periodontal disease. You can receive periodontal treatment with ozone in San Diego from Dr. Georgaklis. Dr. George initially has his hygienist do one quadrant of root planning, scaling and curettage per week with anesthetic. All pockets are irrigated with ozanated water which reduces the bacteria in the area.
After four weeks all the quadrants are treated with ozone gas using custom made trays. The trays allow the tissues to absorb the gas, which is very effective and enhances the immunological response to heal.
If you are experiencing symptoms of periodontal disease, do not hesitate to call holistic dentist Dr. Georgaklis’ office and schedule an appointment now.
NOTE: Gum disease may produce few obvious signs, even in the late stages of the disease and often progresses painlessly.
Periodontal disease symptoms may include
- Persistent bad breath
- Bright red, reddened or swollen gums
- Gums that are tender to the touch
- Bleeding gums
- Space between your gums and teeth (receding gums) that may cause your teeth to appear longer than normal
