Clearwater Family Dental Employs Magic Potions
There are some natural elements that can be used in a dental treatment that will not only enhance your teeth and gums, but your overall healing and health. Clearwater Family Dental employs the use of generous amounts of ozone to clean teeth, gums and extraction sights. Ozone consists of three oxygen atoms which, when bound, create a powerful therapy for controlling bacteria, virus, fungi and even parasites. Clearwater Dental’s hygiene department uses ozone water when cleaning their patients’ teeth and ozone gas to flush out periodontal pockets. Ozone is also used when a tooth is being restored after the cavity has been cleaned out. This ensures all bacteria in the tooth are eliminated before placing a filling. If a tooth is infected and needs extraction, the extraction site is flushed with ozone to clean out all infection.
The second magic potion utilized by Clearwater Dental comes from the patients themselves. Every person holds their own unique healing capability within their blood. When a patient needs surgery, the dentist will often draw a vial of blood from them and spin it in a centrifuge. The blood divides into several layers, the middle of which contains the patient’s white blood cells, platelets, healing proteins and stem cells. Placing that concentrated potion (called platelet rich fibrin or PRF) into the surgery site enhances healing and bone growth from within one’s own body. There are physicians who have been successfully using PRF for years, but only a few dentists have joined this biological way to heal the body.
Dr. Paul Rodeghero, a 1983 graduate of Ohio State Dental School and a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry as well as the International Congress of Oral Implantology, has completed thousands of hours of continuing education, providing his patients with the latest in leading edge technologies for not only oral health but overall wellbeing.
