Due to its highly oxidative properties, ozone offers a natural means of eliminating bacteria and other pathogens that endanger oral health. Dr. Yani offers ozone therapy for a variety of dental issues. She also uses ozonated water as an effective alternative to fluorinated water. If you are looking for a holistic dentist in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Dr. Yani and the staff at General and Cosmetic Dentistry offer safe, biocompatible treatments that are free of harmful chemicals and dangerous metals. We also serve nearby Oakland Park and Hollywood.
How Does Ozone Therapy Work?
Dr. Yani is a strong proponent of delivering safe treatments that are free from chemicals, toxins, and dangerous materials. Ozone is a safe, natural substance that is sometimes misportrayed as a dangerous pollutant. This inorganic molecule has unique properties that make it an effective means of enhancing treatment for a wide range of dental problems. In some cases, the bacteria-killing qualities of ozone allow Dr. Yani to use less invasive treatments when addressing tooth decay and infections.
The key to ozone’s infection-fighting properties is the powerful oxidative effect it has on bacteria. The same microbes that cause gum disease and cavities lack antioxidant enzymes, which makes them an easy target for ozone treatment.

What Are the Benefits of Ozone Therapy?
Ozone treatments are highly effective when addressing a wide range of dental problems. The inorganic molecule is completely safe and easy to administer. Patients who undergo ozone therapy under the careful guidance of Dr. Yani can benefit from:
- Improve oral health
- A 30-minute treatment
- Elimination of dangerous microorganisms
- Improved blood flow near the gums and teeth
- A naturally boosted immune system
- Lower risk of post-procedural infection or other complications
- Improved healing
- No risk of an allergic reaction
By incorporating ozone treatments during root canal therapy, for example, Dr. Yani can more thoroughly eradicate harmful bacteria in order to save the exterior tissue of the tooth.
Treatments that Can Include Ozone Therapy
Ozone can be administered in multiple ways. One treatment method uses a special tray that is worn over the upper teeth and then lower teeth for around 10 minutes each. The trays connect to a machine that delivers therapeutic ozone. Ozone can also be consumed through ozonated water as an alternative to fluoride treatment. Ozonated water is known to eliminate bacteria, strengthen tooth structure, and lower tooth sensitivity. For children, ozone can be applied through a dental sealant.
Ozone may be used during one of your restorative treatments at our dental practice. Dr. Yani may incorporate the use of this safe and therapeutic gas for:
- Root canal therapy
- Gum disease treatments
- Dental cleanings
- Tooth decay treatments
- Treatment of infections
- Treating sensitive teeth
