At Elevate Dental Wellness, Dr. Steinbach offers ozone therapy to patients who are in need of bacteria removal and treatment within the mouth. Ozone therapy is a part of our holistic, total-body-health approach to dental care.
How is ozone used in dentistry?
Ozone can be used as a gas, mixed with water, oils, and plant extracts to create therapies that Dr. Steinbach and Dr. Van Gorden use in a variety of ways. Often referred to as ozone therapy, this treatment focuses on treating oral infections, reversing decay, reducing pain, and accelerating the healing process. Ozone is a versatile substance, allowing our office to use it for everything from preventing cavities to disinfecting water lines.

Research has consistently shown that it’s safe and effective, with minimal side effects that are usually preventable.
