The effectiveness of Ozonated water on reducing post extraction sequelae
Keywords:Ozone; Saline; extraction; complication.
Background: The goal of the current study was to determine if irrigation with ozonated water following conventional exodontia lowers post-extraction complications in contrast to irrigation with normal saline.
Methods: This prospective cohort study included 80 healthy participants, 40 males and 40 females 40 men who had routine closed tooth extraction. Two groups of participants were formed (Group A: irrigated with ozonated water and group B: irrigated with normal saline). The key research postoperative outcome measures that had been assessed postoperatively were the pain level experienced during the first five days after surgery, the degree of soft tissue healing, and the occurrence of alveolar osteitis.
Results: Both groups had an equal distribution of males and females. Gender and age characteristics did not significantly differ across groups (P=0.588 and P=0.104 respectively). Both groups saw a significant postoperative reduction in pin, which decreased from 1.9 on the first day to 0.3 on the fifth. Regarding the occurrence of alveolar osteitis or the rate of soft tissue healing, there was no marked difference between the groups.
Conclusion: Although ozonated water reduced the occurrence of postoperative sequla after traditional nonsurgical tooth extraction, the findings were not statistically different from the standard saline irrigation strategy.
