Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Assure A Smile excitedly announces the arrival of advanced ozone therapy technologies designed to deliver a cleaner, healthier, and safer patient experience during the treatment of tooth decay, root canals, periodontal disease, and more.
Ozone therapy is one of the newest and most talked about developments in alternative medicine, primarily because it aims to more proficiently eliminate bacteria during routine medical procedures. In turn, patients receive more comprehensive protection against long-term infection and larger health conditions.
"By administering ozone during dental procedures, we are able to help the body naturally kill the bacteria that causes tooth decay, gum disease, failed root canals, and other long-term health issues,” explains Dr. Theodore Herrmann, DMD, founder and lead-dentist at Assure A Smile.
As Dr. Herrmann states, failure to eliminate bacteria can cause both short and long term issues for dental patients. In the short term, oral bacteria is known to produce an acid that causes tooth enamel to erode, leading to cavities, dental caries, and eventually periodontal (gum) disease. In the long term, however, the spread of oral bacteria can lead to more serious health issues throughout the body.
Because oral bacteria can so easily reach the bloodstream by way of the gums and soft tissues, scientists believe the bacteria might also play a causal role in the development of heart disease and stroke. This was made clear as early as February of 2007 when the Harvard Medical School released findings that supported such a claim. In a report titled Heart Disease and Oral Health: The Role of Bacteria in Heart Plaque, Harvard researchers present findings in which the bacteria from periodontal disease also appears in atherosclerotic plaque, which might ultimately cause heart disease and cardiac arrest.
In light of such studies, it’s easy to see how long-term patient health hinges upon the ability of dental professionals to be vigilant in eliminating oral bacteria while treating patients. Ozone therapy is poised to make a big splash in Miami for this very reason, aiming to provide an advanced method of eliminating oral bacteria before it can adversely affect long-term patient health.
