When we think of the term “ozone,” we often think of the ozone layer around the earth. However, ozone is a type of oxygen that can be used in many areas of medicine. Learning how to utilize ozone in a dental practice is what dentists are eager to learn. At The Center for Advanced Dental Disciplines, Drs. Griffin Cole and Robert Harris provide learning opportunities for dentists around the United States. Their Louisville, Kentucky area courses are designed to educate dentists on integrating ozone therapy into their dental practices. Our professional instructors also provide information on the history of ozone therapy in dentistry to better understand this and other biocompatible services dentists can offer to their patients.
Ozone consists of three oxygen atoms that create a colorless gas. This gas can be administered to patients to facilitate faster healing and offer antibacterial treatments. It is used in numerous oral treatments, ranging from tooth decay to periodontal disease, and everything in-between.
Ozone was first integrated into medical practices in 1932 by a Swiss dentist named Dr. Edwin Fisch. He patented a device called the Cytozon that administered ozone to treat cavities. Over time, more and more professionals saw the benefits of ozone therapy in dentistry and started integrating it regularly into many routine dental procedures. While not all dentists use ozone therapy, the ones who do see the tremendous benefits it provides in all areas of the field.
