Abstract

OZONE IN DENTISTRY- EFFECTS & APPLICATIONS

Dr. Sukriti Paul*, Dr. Lata and Dr. Mehak Tariq

ABSTRACT

The term ozone is derived from the Greek word ‘ozein’, (meaning to odor; named after its typical odor habitually perceived by human nose at 0.02 or 0.05 ppm.). It was first used by a German chemist named Christian Friedrich Schonbein (father of ozone therapy) in 1840. Ozone or O3 is a natural gaseous molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms. The stratosphere is composed of plenty of ozone which safeguards the living organisms from the harmful ultraviolet rays (UV). Oxone being heavier than air, falls downward towards the earth from very high altitudes. O3 purifies the air and conglomerates with any other pollutant and toxin that comes in contact with ozone. Thus, this proves to be earth’s natural and biological method of selfcleansing. Ozone has been used as one of the non-medication approaches of treatment modality for more than100 years. EA Fisch (1990) was the first dentist to use ozone therapy in his practice to facilitate disinfection and wound healing during dental surgeries. Ozone therapy can be outlined as a multipurpose bio-oxidative healing process wherein, oxygen/ozone is directed to the patient either in gaseous form, dissolved in water or oil base status; to achieve therapeutic profits.[1]
