Oxygen Therapy – A Breath of Fresh Air

The Las Vegas dentists of Wagner Dental know that no two patients are alike. Everyone deserves a personalized approach to oral health – but what is something no patient (or even human) can live without? Air—or more specifically, oxygen.

The Power of Ozone in Dentistry

Oxygen is essential for your cellular health and has an overall positive effect on your body. For that reason, it can be utilized to improve your dental experience. Some dental offices use oxygen therapy to create a calm environment during treatment of acute dental issues or even preventative visits.

Oxygen therapy delivers 100% pure, medical-grade oxygen. When three atoms of oxygen bind together, they form ozone, the same matter that protects and nourishes our environment. Oxygen can be applied as ozone gas, ozonated water, or ozonated olive oil.

This completely painless treatment works with your body’s natural functions to achieve a multitude of benefits. Increased exposure to pure oxygen has been found to:

  • Speed healing time for wounds
  • Increase blood flow in soft tissue and bones
  • Stave off infection
  • Preserve healthy tissue
  • Reduce the effects of toxins

Oxygen Therapy for Stress Relief at the Dentist

Have you ever experienced the calming side effects of a slow, deep breath? Imagine incorporating that relaxing experience with your next dental checkup. Some dentists and other healthcare providers use oxygen therapy to make a peaceful and serene environment. Whether you get a bit anxious at the dentist, or you’d just like to make your visit as comfortable and beneficial as possible, consider asking about oxygen therapy. Many patients feel more energized and clear-headed after increased exposure to oxygen.

Oxygen Therapy for Acute Dental Healing

If you have an injury to or infection in your mouth or are recovering from a major dental procedure, oxygen therapy could greatly improve your healing. Oxygen is essential for cellular metabolism and renewal and can expedite your body’s natural healing process. Body tissues heal fastest when they are exposed to fresh air and abundant oxygen. Your body makes new cells all the time, particularly when you have a wound or infection.

Oxygen therapy gives your cells the fuel they need to heal and can create a secure environment for prolonged healing. Because water and oxygen are already natural components in your body, the effects of oxygen therapy are long-lasting.

It’s very important for oxygen to be used in addition to conventional procedures and treatments because it’s not proven to treat any health problems on its own. If you have gum disease, have just had oral surgery, or have any other dental health problems, consider adding oxygen therapy to reduce healing time and boost immunity. Be sure to talk with Wagner Dental about recommended treatment for any dental needs you have and how oxygen therapy might benefit your outcomes.
