Ozone in dentistry

Introduction: Ozone is a gas found naturally in the
atmosphere. This gas kills bacteria, viruses and
fungi within 5 seconds and because of this it is
often used to control infections in hospitals. That
also makes it very useful in dentistry for killing
the bacteria that cause decay and gum disease
