Ozone – A Newer Path in Periodontics (Review)

Author: , CATHERINE JEAN S, SNOPHIA SURESH, UMA SUDHAKAR
Abstract: The word ozone was derived from a Greek word ‘Ozein’, meaning odour. It is heavier than air and is present in the Earths stratosphere. 1 molecule of ozone is equal to thousands of chlorine molecule and can kill pathogens 3500 times faster executing its antiseptic property. Because ozone is naturally present in the atmosphere it is more compatible with the human body. The therapeutic effect of ozone was identified and later introduced into various fields such as, medicine and dentistry, due to its chemical properties and its interaction with biomolecules. Ozone therapy is known to be a modern non-medication mode of treatment. Dentistry as such is a vast area and all the specialties have ample evidence of ozone being used to treat its own form of diseases and conditions. The unique combination of the useful properties of ozone such as antimicrobial, analgesic, anti-inflammatory etc. has been used to treat gingival and periodontal diseases. Ozone in periodontics is used as a subgingival irrigant after Scaling and Root planing (SRP), as an agent to eliminate gram positive and negative microbes, periodontitis and implant related problems can also be treated using ozone. This review will focus and summarize on the diverse forms, application, uses and mechanisms of ozone that is used in periodontics.
