Title: Clinical applications of ozone in dentistry


In recent years, ozone has gained attention in dentistry due to its broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity and potential therapeutic applications. Ozone can be administered in three different forms, in relation to the various fields of dentistry which are involved. Gaseous ozone can be administered for the management of dental caries and the remineralization of early carious lesions by promoting the deposition of minerals such as calcium and phosphate onto tooth surfaces. Moreover, it is used for disinfection and sterilization in dental settings due to its rapid action against bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It is an effective tool for disinfecting dental instruments, operative surfaces, and dental unit waterlines, contributing to infection control and ensuring patient safety. Instead, ozonated oils and ozonated water can be employed in the disruption of oral biofilms to promote periodontal healing as an adjunct to conventional mechanical debridement therapy, for the disinfection of root canals in endodontics, and for soft tissues healing. These benefits are supported by evidence, making it a viable treatment option. However, additional research is necessary to clarify the best protocols, safety considerations, and long-term effectiveness to fully utilize ozone in improving dental care outcomes.
