While dental ozone is becoming more popular in the U.S., it has been successfully used in Europe for quite some time as a pain-free alternative to treating gum disease and tooth decay. So what exactly is ozone?

Ozone is actually one of the most effective ways nature destroys bacteria, fungi, and viruses. It is comprised of 3 atoms of oxygen and safely disinfects an environment by creating a “transient oxidative burst”. It is harmless to your body while preventing germ reproduction.

Our skilled dentist, Dr. Julia Gorelik, uses this powerful, anti-inflammatory treatment to treat gum disease, clean decay, and help with root canal therapy. She also uses it to help with tooth roots which are exposed and pain management (no injections!). Using dental ozone on our patients is both safe environmentally yet effective, and the body even produces it naturally.

Did you know that ozone has been used for many years in hospitals? Its diversity includes effectively sterilizing operating rooms, as well as food and water worldwide. Hospitals also use it to speed up the healing process in patients while also treating diseases. At Gorelik Dentistry, we are pleased to provide the benefits of dental ozone with all dental treatment. Ozone helps make procedures shorter, and best of all, it is less invasive than other treatment methods.

We look forward to helping you have the quality care you deserve in a healthy, safe environment. To schedule a visit with Dr. Julia Gorelik and our team in Charlotte, North Carolina, please call 704-553-1627 today. We look forward to bringing out your best smile!
