Dentist Greenville SC - Five Star Reviews
Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

Dental ozone ideal for gum therapy and other dental treatments offered by your Greenville, SC dentist

Ozone is an element that many people have a certain impression of. This element is actually oxygen with one additional molecule, a substance that has been proven not only safe but also extremely beneficial to oral health. In nature, ozone has somewhat of a negative connotation due to the fact that we measure ozone levels as a sign of environmental pollution. The reason this is effective, however, is because ozone is a natural filter, binding to pollutants as a form of removal.
Ozone’s natural tendency, with its negative charge, is to neutralize those elements with a positive charge. Examples of substances with a positive charge are bacteria, free radicals, cancer cells, viruses, and other “bad cells”. In the body, these bad cells attract ozone, which will penetrate the cell and destroy it with the opposing charge. Good cells are not affected by ozone, as the anti-oxidant content in their cell membranes inhibit oxygenation on the surface.

Dental Ozone Therapy from Dr. Palmer in Greenville SC

Oxygen and ozone – how they differ

Dental ozone has been used for several years. An excellent holistic dental therapy, ozone is a regular part of our practice in Greenville, SC. This substance can be used in gas or liquid form, allowing for its use in various forms of treatment. To treat periodontal disease in the most non-invasive way, ozonated water or gas may be applied to affected areas below the gum line, where it can be absorbed into supportive tissues for the elimination of bacterial infection. Healing of infected tissue is also promoted in this treatment.
Additional uses for ozone in the holistic dental practice include:

  • Cavity treatment. Ozone has anti-bacterial properties. In gas form, ozone can permeate below the gums, and also into the grooves of teeth where bacteria lie, effectively destroying these organisms. In instances of minor cavities, it may be possible to treat with ozone alone, with no additional restoration. Areas of deeper damage can be treated with ozone, and then filled with a mercury-free dental filling, inlay, or onlay, as needed. Treating cavities with ozone leads to the recalcification of tooth structure, which means a tooth will be stronger following this treatment.
  • Effective fluoride alternative. The conventional treatment aimed at remineralization of teeth is to apply fluoride. Ozone, a healthy alternative, creates stronger, more durable teeth without any of the side effects of fluoride.
  • Sensitivity, which often presents as a result of softened enamel, can be effectively eliminated with ozone therapy, due to its enamel-hardening effect.

Ozone is suitable for most dental guests, as it is a substance that does not react with medications, nor does it produce an allergic response, as it contains oxygen. To experience the highest level of holistic dental care, contact Palmer Distinctive Dentistry.
