Efficacy of ozonated oils in odontogenic (oral) infections

Ozone has the ability to oxidize organic and inorganic compounds, reacting to them immediately. Thus, it is expected that it will oxidize the plasma membrane of various microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses and fungi and, consequently, destroy them.
Given the germicidal actions and its oxygenating power, which favor tissue regeneration, ozonated oils can be used in the treatment of alveolitis after extraction of the third molar[i].
Ozonated oils act against bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Ozonated oils are able to inactivate vital functions of bacteria, without them developing immunity to their action, being able to act on gram positive bacteria – which are more sensitive to their action – but also on gram negative, anaerobic bacteria, being especially useful in cariogenic bacteria, above all, Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus sobrinus.
Given its action on several unsaturated fatty acids (present in viral envelopes and capsids) it also allows the rapid destruction of these agents without harm to human cells.
The use of ozonated oils is so safe and simple that it can be used by the patient at home, after dental treatments in the clinic.
