What is Healozone?
Healozone is a new type of advanced technology that enables dentists to target tooth decay with ozone. Ozone is a natural destroyer of bacteria, so it kills bacteria in decaying teeth wherever it comes into contact with it. So effectively, it stops teeth from decaying any further.
How does this help dentophobics?
Healozone can help stop teeth from decaying further. Therefore, you may not need anaesthetic or drilling in the future, as decay can be removed so much more easily. As injections and drilling are two of the most significant stimuli for dental phobics, this treatment is very suitable for patients with fear of the dentist and very young children.
What does the treatment involve?
The HealOzone is applied directly to the tooth in a period of 20 to 40 seconds. The application of the ozone kills the bacteria causing the decay. Your tooth will be stronger and less likely to succumb to decay in the future.
Does it hurt?
Not at all. Not only does HealOzone remove the need for injections and drilling, it is a totally pain-free treatment. This is why it is used increasingly to treat phobic patients and children, with huge success (and customer satisfaction) rates.
Is it safe?
Ozone, the gas, is formed from oxygen particles, so it is entirely harmless to people. HealOzone is not only harmless, it also helps teeth to become stronger in fighting decay in the future.
So does this mean the end of fillings?
Not necessarily. Amidst all the clamour about how fantastic HealOzone is, it is important not to forget that this is really a preventative treatment. HealOzone helps to prevent tooth decay and to remove the bacteria that cause tooth decay. If your teeth have decayed to the point where fillings are required, HealOzone will not remove the need for those fillings. In fact, cavities will need repairing otherwise the bacteria could return and the decay could start afresh.
As we said above, HealOzone is preventative. If it is used to combat decay early enough, it can stop you needing fillings and therefore remove the requirement for injections and fillings. On the other hand, it will only kill the bacteria, not enable your tooth to miraculously regenerate itself.
