Ozonated Water in Dentistry

Ozonated Water in Dentistry

Ozonated water is essentially water that is free from all impurities. When ozone is placed into water, it’s able to kill viruses, bacteria, and any pesticides that are situated in the substance.

Recently there has been strong evidence to suggest the effectiveness of ozonated water in dental treatments. The most common applications of ozonated water in dental practices include:


  • Treatment of dental unit waterlines to remove bacteria
  • Removal of biofilms
  • Decontamination for implant production and placement
  • Irrigation for pulp therapy
  • Oral fungal infection management

How does it work?

As well as being an antimicrobial agent, ozone dissolved in water has been found to be able to modulate pain and inflammation. Its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory actions can prevent infections and promote healing. Therefore using ozonated water rather than regular water for dental treatments can be beneficial.

For example, in a study where ozone water was used as an alternative to saline to wash the mouth after implant placement, the study demonstrated that using ozonated water decreased pain and inflammation and accelerated wound healing.

So how do dental clinics get access to ozonated water? In Australia ozonated water complies with Australian certification plumbing requirements, meaning it can be connected into normal plumbing and be delivered via tap. This means it can then be connected to the dental chair and be utilised in a variety of treatments to disinfect, decontaminate and irrigate as necessary.
