Conventional dental hygiene treatment includes professionally cleaning the teeth for the patient. This is usually called scaling and polishing.
Advanced dental hygiene includes additional deep gum disinfection with ozone. The medical ozone, not to be confused with the ozone in our stratosphere, is used directly at the focus of a disease and kills off the germs there. This kind of pain-free treatment is ideal for prevention of the bad breath, periodontitis and caries. With the supporting ozone therapy, even a serious infection can be treated effectively.
Persistent bad breath, bad taste in the mouth or bleeding from gums may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) infection. Gum infection is caused by pathogen (in most cases anaerobic) bacterias. Bacteria cause the formation of toxins to form, which irritate the gums. If gum disease continues untreated, it can damage the gums and jawbone.
A novel application technology allows the disinfection of all teeth and periodontal ligament in one treatment session within a few minutes.
