Biomimetic Dentistry, ozone dentistry, avoiding root canal, Dr Alleman DDS
When he felt that the cracks had been eliminated and the bacterial count was sufficiently down he then applied ozone gas directly to the tooth at a 24 gamma for approximately one minute. It seemed that while this was being applied suction was also applied nearby to carry off ambient ozone gas. I did not smell ozone at all and if I did inhale any it was in so small an amount I could not tell and really consequential. Ozone will immediately kill off any trace of bacteria that may remain. There is also evidence that ozone gas will stimulate the growth of dental tissue. (see Julian Holmes) Since I had pulp exposed this could be critical to the success of the treatment. Dr Allemen said that ozone will penetrate up to 2 mm into the pulp.
Dr Allemen devotes considerable time to educating dentists across the nation. In October 2009 he will be having a seminar in Salt Lake City to teach dentists how to apply bonded composite fillings with this new approach. If you would like to contact Dr Allemen to set up a seminar in your city you may contact him through his email.Biomimetic Dentistry, ozone dentistry, avoiding root canal, Dr Alleman DDS
