1.) A Brief History Of Ozone And Its Uses
It’s important to understand that ozone is not a poison and that it has been used to help human health for more than 100 years. To give you a little history, In 1785, the Dutch chemist Martinus van Marum was conducting experiments involving electrical sparking above water when he noticed an unusual smell, which he attributed to the electrical reactions, failing to realize that he had in fact created ozone. A half-century later, Christian Friedrich Schönbein noticed the same pungent odor and recognized it as the smell often following a bolt of lightning. In 1839, he succeeded in isolating the gaseous chemical and named it “ozone,” from the Greek word ozein, meaning “to smell.” For this reason, Schönbein is generally credited with the discovery of ozone. The formula for ozone, O3, was not determined until 1865 by Jacques-Louis Soret and confirmed by Schönbein in 1867. Some other historical uses of ozone demonstrating its safety include its use as a disinfectant in drinking water in 1893, its use as a food preservative for cold storage of meats in 1909 and in 1939 ozone was found to prevent the growth of yeast & mold during the storage of fruits.
Most people have heard of ozone because of the concerns with the holes forming in the ozone layer.
2.) Uses For Ozone In Dentistry
Ozone is ideal for use in the mouth. For example, I use ozone when I do fillings because it desensitizes the tooth I’ve worked on. In the last eight years, I can count the number of sensitive teeth I’ve seen after doing a filling on one hand. Prior to using ozone, it was normal for most of my patients to have a sensitivity to cold and chewing after fillings. This scenario alone is enough of a reason for all dentists to think about incorporating ozone in their dental offices. Who wouldn’t like less tooth pain after a filling? In this way, ozone can also help prevent a nerve in the tooth from dying because it’s usually bacteria entering the nerve that causes the tooth to die and the patient to need a root canal. Since starting to use ozone eight years ago, I can count the number of root canals a patient of mine has needed after doing a filling or crown on one hand. And this includes deep cavities that have gone nearly to the nerve. If the tooth is not dead when I first see a patient, there is a very good chance I can save a tooth by using ozone.
Ozone also offers incredible antimicrobial support. They say the human mouth is one of the infectious things on earth, so we use ozone with our gums therapies and cleanings and we use ozone when working with teeth that have a lot of deadly anaerobic bacteria, like root canals and cavitations. Before every dental cleaning, we have our patients swish and rinse their mouths for a minute with freshly made ozone water. This helps to bring down the number and types of dangerous bacteria prior to the cleaning and helps protect the patient. When you understand that most heart disease comes from the mouth and infected gums, having a safe, non-toxic way to lower the bad bugs in the mouth prior to the cleaning is a real health benefit to our patients! Because ozone demonstrates a property called “crawling,” we don’t have to force ozone gas painfully under the gums. We can place it gently at the gum line and the ozone will travel down
Ozone offers an incredible healing advantage in the pre-conditioning or pre-surgical treatment of root canals. I always use ozone prior to doing an extraction. Research has been done by a great ozone therapist named Lamberto Rey that shows that if a person has ozone introduced into tissue prior to surgery or trauma – on average the patient will experience 50% less pain and inflammation after the surgery! Is there anyone out there that wouldn’t like 50% less pain when they have a tooth extracted?
And it’s important to understand that ozone does not kill our cells like it kills a virus or fungus. Human cells are covered with little labels that tell
When ozone is introduced into the blood, it has a myriad of health benefits, if used correctly. I can’t stress enough that ozone can be harmful if used at the wrong dose, if too much is given, or if the patient has been chronically ill for a long time and their immune system is shot. People should not just start heavy ozone programs when they have had chronic health problems. Ozone can definitely help, but shouldn’t be the starting vehicle. Occasionally, it’s important for people to be supplemented before they start ozone therapies… with things like selenium, or zinc and copper. The best way to use ozone in these circumstances is to go “low and slow.” I have seen hundreds of chronically ill patients regain their vitality and health with the help of ozone. It’s actually a lot of fun.
