Orange County's Dental Ozone Therapy Expert
Dr. Angham (Ann) Abdulla, DDS provides Orange County patients with professionally administered dental ozone therapy, a safe, effective, and holistic treatment for oral infections. As a member of the American Dental Association and the International Association of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), Dr. Abdulla stays up to date with the latest in holistic dentistry practices and techniques. By incorporating ozone therapy into her dental practices, she is able to offer her patients improved oral health without the harmful side effects associated with antibiotics, antimicrobial rinses, and pharmaceutical drugs.
How Ozone Therapy Works to Treat Gingivitis, Periodontal Disease & Canker Sores
Also referred to by its chemical formula O3, ozone is created when an oxygen molecule acquires an additional O atom. While this process typically occurs in the Earth's stratosphere when oxygen (O2) reacts with ultraviolet light or encounters electrical discharges, we are able to create ozone gas in our Laguna Hills dental office using a clinical ozone generator.
When administered by a trained specialist like Dr. Abdulla, ozone gas or ozonated water effectively kills bacteria, viruses, parasites, mold, and fungi found within the human mouth. This makes ozone therapy useful in treating gingivitis, periodontal disease, oral candidiasis (thrush), and canker sores. Because ozone naturally desensitizes treated areas, treatment is virtually pain free. Additionally, ozone's powerful antimicrobial properties can help to disinfect gum tissue and sterilize a tooth prior to placing a crown or filling, which can help to prevent further decay or the need for a root canal.

*Although ozone therapy has been used in health care settings and studies since the 1800s,
it's important to note that ozone treatment has not been evaluated or sanctioned by the FDA.
