How does ozone therapy work?
Ozone therapy works by sterilising an area of decay in a tooth. Ozone gas, which has high oxygen content, is initially applied to the affected tooth. This gas penetrates the tooth and eradicates the bacteria, neutralising harmful plaque acids that may otherwise lead to potential erosion and decay. Sealants can also be used to prevent decay in the future.

Ozone therapy has many advantages:
- Painless procedure
- Beneficial for patients with a phobia of the dental drill
