What is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone is a supercharged oxidant treatment that is naturally occurring in the Earth’s atmosphere. Our ozone therapy, also known as Oxygen/Ozone Therapy, is generated by a machine that takes a 95-99% concentration of oxygen (O2) and adds an extra oxygen atom to each molecule, creating ozone (O3). This supercharged oxygen is a powerful antioxidant germ-fighter that helps boost the immune system. At Biological Dentistry of Albuquerque, we believe that ozone therapy is the key to achieving optimum health and wellness.
Is Ozone Therapy Effective?
Ozone therapy has been used for over 150 years with great success and offers a safe, natural way to promote healing, without the negative side effects of other treatments. Experience the power of ozone therapy and the difference it can make in your overall health today!
Ozone Therapy Research
At Biological Dentistry of Albuquerque, Dr. Supple is proud to offer ozone therapy to his patients. This powerful antimicrobial has been growing in research for over fifty years, and its promise as a form of treatment has been noted since the 1800s. While the experience of practitioners over the decades and anecdotal claims have been promising, proper use of oxygen/ozone therapy requires trained and certified practitioners, making the work of the American Academy of Ozonotherapy (AAOT) invaluable. Dr. Supple has taken the necessary steps to become one of the few certified AAOT practitioners, meaning he can offer his patients the highest quality ozone therapy available. By offering this advanced form of care, Dr. Supple is able to help patients in new and powerful ways, providing a holistic approach to their well-being.
How Does Ozone Therapy Work?
Ozone has been used for many years in dentistry and medicine to treat infections, reduce inflammation, and speed up healing. It works by introducing a precise dose of ozone into the area. This ozone oxidizes and destroys any microorganisms present, while healthy cells thrive in the environment created. The process causes a “transient oxidative burst” in the microorganisms, overstressing them and breaking them down, killing the pathogens. The left-over oxygen bathes and nourishes the remaining cells, improving blood flow, oxygenation, and detoxification, while decreasing inflammation and modulating the immune system. This process facilitates accelerated healing, reduced acidity, and other positive effects.
Do Dentists Using Ozone Therapy Need Training or Certification?
Currently, there are only a few organizations worldwide that provide training in ozone therapy. Dr. Supple has received training from Dr. Frank Shallenberger, former president of the American College of Integrative Medicine and Dentistry. As a result, you can be assured that he has the knowledge and expertise necessary to provide you with the very best ozone treatment.
What makes ozone therapy so appealing is that it is a non-invasive, natural way to treat a wide range of conditions without the need for drugs or surgery. Ozone therapy is a great way to boost your overall health and well-being. It has been used for decades to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, and even to treat various diseases.
Dr. Supple’s training was also overseen by Dr. Frank Shallenberger, known as the “Godfather of Ozone” due to his 25+ years of experience in ozone therapy. Dr. Frank Shallenberger is the former president of the American Academy of Ozonotherapy (AAOT), which is the premier training institution in America for certifications in oxygen/ozone therapies.
