Ozone Therapy


Ozone Therapy

Why Ozone?

Simply because ozone kills the source(s) of all oral infection.  When treating a cavity we are removing mushy decay, but the ozone will kill the remaining bacteria in an otherwise healthy tooth structure that can lead to a new cavity. Hence, “recurrent” decay. Ozone can also kill the viruses that causes canker sores and fever blisters, diminishing pain immediately. The healing starts NOW.  

What is Ozone?
Ozone is three atoms of oxygen stuck together instead of the normal two that we breathe.

What does it do?
Ozone kills all bacteria, yeasts, fungi, molds and parasites, our enemies. It is commonly used for disinfection and sterilization in a range of areas from water treatment facilities to operating rooms and making distilled water. Just check the labels at your local grocery store.
How do you make it?

Medical grade oxygen flows through an electric plasma field, “controlled lightning”.  The energy created by the device breaks the oxygen molecules apart, allowing them to re-bond as ozone (O3). Our ozone generator meets Canadian, US, North American and European medical device regulatory standards.
Is it safe?
As with any drug, inappropriate use can be harmful.  Dr. Ruefenacht is a founding member and Fellow of the American Academy of Ozone Therapy and follows the AAOT and  Madrid Protocols (ICOS). 
What do you do with it?

●      Desensitize teeth to hot and cold

●      Kill bacteria inside healthy tooth structure to allow for strong adhesive bonds

●      Kill the viruses that cause canker and cold sores (and the pain is gone too!)

●      Kill the bacteria in all of the microscopic places during root canal treatment

●      Treat gum infections such as gingivitis and periodontitis

Good Bye Bacteria, Hello Happy Nerve.
The healthy nerve has the potential to repair decay-damaged tooth structure if the bacteria are killed and the area sealed against further bacteria.  Bye Bye root canal!  I use ozone therapies to kill the bacteria and advanced bonding techniques to seal the tooth surface against new bacterial infection. Bacteria left in the healthy tooth causes new decay and an abscessed tooth.

Ozone Treatment for extreme sensitivity.

My experience with Dr. Ruefenacht has been phenomenal!! We just did some ozone treatments for my extreme sensitivity and the pain has gone down almost completely. A huge difference! He certainly has the experience and knowledge that will benefit even the most extreme cases like myself. We are also nearing the end of all my composite veneers and once again I can’t tell you how elated I am!! I smile all the time!!
