Medical-grade oxygen-ozone therapy creates a therapeutic oxygen-rich environment that induces a positive multi-factorial biochemical/physiologic change in affected tissues. Oxygen-ozone kills anaerobic bacteria, viruses and fungi. It is also a circulatory stimulant, wound-cleanser, accelerant for wound healing, hemostatic agent, and immune-activating agent.
Our practice routinely employs oxygen-ozone to:sterilize restorative sites in teeth, especially when decay was close to the nerve, prior to placing fillings
address localized gum lesions (viral, fungal, bacterial)
insufflate and sterilize infected gum pockets address bone infections
cleanse extraction sites and promote healing
promote bone integration for dental implants
provide supportive therapy for sinus infections
I had oxygen-ozone therapy done by Dr. Trovato this past summer. I decided to have this treatment after being diagnosed with oral cancer in April of 2007. Oxygen-ozone was not supposed to be a cure, but I believe it helped to make my body healthier. There was a growth on my tongue that went away with this treatment and for which I would otherwise have needed surgery. I have known Dr. Lou since I was 7 years old, and I used to work at Meetinghouse Dental Care. I trust him more than anything, and this experience just reinforced what I already knew about him. My treatment was 10 weeks long, 2 appointments per week. At each appointment I received injections in my tonsils, my tongue, etc. This seemed to be scary at first but with Lou it was easy. He explained everything to me before doing it and was extremely gentle. Who would ever think all those injections wouldn't hurt?!?!? With Lou in charge I felt very comfortable, and it really did not hurt. Lou always made himself available to answer any and all of my questions. Having oxygen-ozone therapy allowed me to avoid one surgery. I had four surgeries on my tongue, and they were very painful. The fact that this treatment saved me from one surgery is a miracle to me. Lou is a wonderful man and doctor, and I would not be getting through my cancer diagnosis as well as I am without him and the staff at Meetinghouse Dental Care.
