Saini R. (2011). Ozone therapy in dentistry: A strategic review. Journal of natural science, biology, and medicine2(2), 151–153. doi:10.4103/0976-9668.92318

Ozone (O3) is a triatomic molecule, consisting of three oxygen atoms, and its application in medicine and dentistry has been indicated for the treatment of 260 different pathologies. The ozone therapy has been more beneficial than present conventional therapeutic modalities that follow a minimally invasive and conservative application to dental treatment. The exposition of molecular mechanisms of ozone further benefits its practical function in dentistry.
