Courses For Dentists

The Use of Ozone in Dentistry - Clinical Course and Workshop

ACIMD – American College for Integrative Medicine and Dentistry
Your Instructors: Dr. Robert Harris DDS, Dr. Phil Mollica DDS, Saddlebrook NJ USA

Dr. Robert Harris DDS and Dr. Phil Mollica DDS have been using ozone in clinical practice since 2002. Both of these experienced clinicians are Professor Emeritus from the Departments of Dentistry and Integrative Medicine at Capital University of Integrative Medicine Washington D.C. and both are on the Board of Directors of the ACIMD – American College of Integrative Medicine and Dentistry. They are the lead investigators in a national outcome study on the use of oxygen/ozone in dentistry. Their Clinical Course and Workshop on the Use of Ozone in Dentistry is restricted to only 10 students to provide each individual an outstanding ‘hands on training’ experience; each course therefore understandably sells out (i.e. register early). This is an outstanding opportunity for licensed Dentists to obtain intensive training on the use of ozone in dentistry, in an intimate gathering that enables one on one instruction. Practitioners are sent home at the end of the course with a complete understanding regarding the Ozone Protocols that are essential for Oral Dental Medicine.

What if you could use just one, highly effective, non-toxic agent for any and all infectious processes in the oral cavity? What if that same agent not only eliminated all pathogens (not just bacteria and viruses, but ALL pathogens)? What if this agent not only eliminated pathogens, but also stimulated natural healing processes in soft tissue, bone, and teeth?Selective elimination of pathogens while supporting healthy cells and stimulating bone and wound healing. Would you be interested? Of course you would!

Would it surprise you to know that this is not a new technique? Ozone / Oxygen gas has been used in dentistry and medicine around the world for decades. It has a safety record that exceeds that of any pharmaceutical agent. There are hundreds of professional studies documenting safety and effiicacy. If you are still reading this, you are interested. If you are interested, you owe it to yourself and your patients to attend this course.

Dentists who have taken this course and embraced ozone / oxygen have jumped to the forefront of dental care. How? Even if you just choose one of the dental applications from the list below, you and your patients will benefit. If you choose to perform them all, you will be on the leading edge of dental medicine.

This course will teach you how to use ozone for the following applications:

Periodontal Appointments:
a. Patient uses ozonated water as a pretreatment rinse (eliminates all surface pathogens)
b. Ozonated water is used in the unit water supply bottles (eliminates biofilm and pathogens)
c. Ozonated water is used in the Ultrasonic water reservoir (eliminates pathogens)
d. Ozonated water is used to irrigate periodontal pockets (elminates pathogens and supports tissue healing)
e. Ozone GAS is used to insufflate ( blow gas into) the periodontal pockets (eliminates pathogens and supports normal tissue healing)
f. Ozone Custom Trays are used for total saturation (microbaric therapy) of all periodontal tissues AND carious lesions, precarious areas, occlusal grooves, interproximal areas and margins of existing restorations. This can prevent caries and aid in recalcification of areas that have minimally invasive caries

Operative Dentistry Appointments:
a. Patient uses ozonated water as a pretreatment rinse
b. Ozonated water is used in the unit water supply bottles
c. Ozone GAS is applied to cavity preparations and crown preparations to sterilize the prepared tooth by oxidizing the remaining pathogens and organic materials in the enamel, remaining caries, and dentinal tubules. This produces a pathogen free oxidized surface that enhances bonding strength and decreases or eliminates post-operative sensitivity.

Endodontic Appointments:
a. Patient uses ozonated water as a pretreatment rinse (eliminates all surface pathogens)
b. Ozonated water is used in the unit water supply bottles (eliminates biofilm and pathogens)
c. Irrigate canals with ozonated water to debride the canals and remove biofilm
d. Insufflate canals with ozone GAS to eliminate pathogens and oxidize organic materials in the dentinal tubulesaccessory canals and lateral canals

Biomimetic Dentistry?  Tell me more…

What is biomimetic dentistry?

Biomimetic dentistry treats weak, fractured, and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong and seals them from bacterial invasion. Careful sealing against infection removes the need for 60% to 90% of the crowns and root canals of traditional dentistry.

What is wrong with traditional dentistry?

Traditional dental techniques haven’t taken advantage of the advanced ceramics and adhesives developed by modern engineering. These new technologies allow dentists to use small onlays that work more like your own teeth than the large porcelain crowns used in traditional dentistry. Old techniques can cause your teeth to eventually crack and leak, allowing bacteria to rot your teeth away from the inside. Biomimetic dentistry locks out the bacteria, for safer, more durable dental work.

Who invented biomimetic dentistry?

The principles of biomimetic dentistry were developed by researchers at prestigious universities in Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Italy, Turkey, The United States, and many other countries. Groundbreaking work by Gary Unterbrink, Didier Dietschi, Pascal Magne, Urs Belser, and J-F Roulet in Europe, and Ray Bertolotti, John Kois, and John Kanca III in the United States, have promoted these advanced adhesive dentistry techniques for the past 25 years. Dr. Alleman and Dr. Deliperi have refined biomimetic techniques for more than 12 years and have seen a dramatic improvement in their patients’ dental health.

What’s different about biomimetic dentistry?

Instead of simply filling cavities as though they were potholes, biomimetic dentistry keeps the patient’s long-term dental health in focus. By using advanced adhesive techniques and properly fashioned onlays, dentists can make sure that dental work will fail in a repairable way, before your teeth suffer any biological failure. By sealing the tooth against infection and bonding the tooth strongly to prevent fracture, biomimetic dentists make sure they don’t make dental problems any more serious than they already are.
