How It Works/How to Use
An excerpt from Dr. Vinograd's website:
Using an Ozone Machine to Prevent Periodontal Disease
The O3 machine adds more oxygen to the water. Oxygen is something that the bacteria hate – ie, it kills them. It can be difficult to get the oxygenated water into gaps that are as deep as seven millimeters or more. This is where the following steps come in:
Get a water pick. It takes time to learn how to use this properly, as long as a couple of weeks, but it is worth this time.
Add a 1000mgh ozone machine. This can be irritating if just in the air, but it is safe to use with water (and more comfortable).
While two millimeters does not sound like a lot—and you will still need to clean them daily—it is a start.
It makes cleaning the bacteria and avoiding gum disease much easier.
How To Use An Ozone Generator To Prevent Gum Disease From Home
There are a few tips for using your ozone machine at home.
The machines must be used in an area that is well-ventilated.
Find one that has a Corona discharge.
Find one with power to avoid long hours using it. 1000mg per hour is perfect and you could finish the job in 15 minutes.
You will also need to buy the waterpik — a water irrigation device. This is very affordable and available on it’s own or within a container. Avoid the travel type where possible, since they do not allow enough water to get into them. As long as there is a reservoir of some type to put the water in and use the pick, you will have the perfect device.
Here are some pointers for using the water pick effectively:
Always stick to the middle pressure. The high pressure option is not better. It actually opens the pockets more and makes them deeper. Medium is the perfect amount of pressure to clean the bacteria out.
There is no need to wait until you have gum disease. Use the water pick as soon as possible to clean the bacteria and avoid periodontal disease ever becoming a problem.
Even if you have pockets just two or three millimeters in size, it is worth using the water pick.
Consult Your Dentist About Gum Disease
Even when you use the ozone machine and water pick for gum disease prevention, you will still need to visit the dentist regularly. This is the only way to make sure the bacterium is clearing, and your gum pockets are closing. It is best to visit your dentist twice a year. The dentist will also be able to check the overall health of your mouth, and diagnose any risk of periodontal disease. Find a professional who takes periodontal disease prevention seriously.
