The use of oxygen in complementary therapies has been gaining momentum in recent years, particularly in the area of dentistry. While ozonated olive oil has many practical and effective uses, such as supporting skin health, research has shown it to be especially helpful for supporting gum health. Gingivitis, typically caused by diets laden with sugar and refined carbohydrates, is a growing issue today. One recent study is revealing just how powerful ozonated therapy can be in the area of teeth and gum health. If you’re currently suffering from any type of dental issue, you may want to continue reading.

Olive Oil: A Potential Complementary Approach

Ozone therapy isn’t an entirely new concept in dentistry. Previous research and medical reviews have discussed the importance of ozone in replacing antiseptic agents used against gingival infections. [1] A study published in Tanta Dental Journal evaluated 30 subjects with gum issues, each receiving standard approaches to gum issues. [2] Half of the group was subjected to both standard treatments and ozonated therapy. These patients received ozonated olive oil gel applied to the main site of gum damage.

The group that received the complementary therapy in addition to conventional treatment saw longer lasting improvements in symptoms. As a matter of fact, the ozonated therapy combined with root scaling resulted in sustained improvements for up to six months, while the benefits from the standard treatment alone only lasted about a month. Although the size of the study participants is relatively small, it is one study among dozens that indicate the effectiveness of ozone therapy in complementing standard medical applications.

Using Ozonated Olive Oil

One of the main uses for ozonated olive oil is in the area of skin health. Ozonated olive oil, like O2-Zap®, contains antibacterial compounds that may support the skin’s defense against bacteria and other compounds that cause acne. Olive oil itself is also an excellent moisturizer, providing a nourishing smoothness to the skin. Many people also brush their teeth with ozonated olive oil in addition to fluoride-free toothpaste to get a deep clean.

    Can olive oil be ozonated by me?

  • Not without the equipment. It’s much more cost effective to just buy a good brand.

    So how would you suggest applying O2Zap to the gums? By using it as a toothpaste?

    All in your head my friend.

    That’s what I do. After I brush my teeth like normal, I dip my toothbrush into the olive oil and get a gumball sized amount on there. Then I just lightly brush my teeth and gums for several more minutes. I think it’s important to emphasize and then reemphasize the “lightly” part. The idea isn’t to use it as a scrubbing agent but to just apply it to your teeth and gums. Mere contact is enough, this wondrous stuff does the rest
