How to Use Ozone at Home for Healthy Teeth and Gums

Many years ago I had a dentist use a microscope to show me what types of bacteria I had living under my gum line. That same dentist suggested that I use a water flosser once per day to flush out the bacteria and spirochetes. After using the water flosser for one year I was retested and found that there were no more visible spirochetes and the amount of bacteria under my gum line was greatly reduced.

A few years later my dental hygienist told me that I had a few small spots where there were pockets beneath my gum line that were not 100% healthy. She suggested a deep cleaning. After understanding that a deep cleaning was a painful, time consuming and expensive process, I decided to do some research for alternatives. I learned about using ozone in a water flosser to kill the bacteria under the gum line that are difficult to access.

I discovered that anyone can purchase an ozone machine made to send ozone gas into a water tank or sauna and as long as you have an air pump to push the ozonated air into the water, it can be used to infuse ozone into a water flosser. Then simply follow the instructions for using a water flosser and send the ozonated water into the gum line.  I made a video on how to do that and you can see it at this link:

Important suggestions for ozone use in a water flosser:

  • Don’t let the sweet taste of ozonated water fool you. High concentrations of ozone can be a potent respiratory hazard and can also damage mucus membranes. I don’t suggest infusing your water flosser for more than 10 seconds with ozone gas.
  • Don’t use this type of ozone generator in a bathroom after a shower where the air is steamy. There are two reasons for this. 1- The moisture in the air will cause the ozone generator to create nitric acid which is corrosive to human skin and turns our skin yellow. 2- The moisture in the air will shorten the life of the corona discharge unit. Only use the machine in a dry room.
  • Don’t turn the pressure on the water flosser up too high. You want to gently clean the gum line, not power wash it. I use my Hydro Floss at 50% power. One Hundred percent power might damage your gums.
  • Check with your dentist. Unless your dentist suggests it, don’t do this every day. I do this two or three times a week at most.
  • Do not swallow the ozonated water. It should be spit it out.

The following bullet points are copied from the National Institutes of Health: 


  • Disinfectant.
  • Anti-inflammatory.
  • Activation of intracellular metabolism of oral mucosa and dental wounds.
  • Improvement of regional circulation.
  • Stimulation of regenerative processes.
  • Hemostasis in capillary bleedings.
  • Painless procedures.


  • Ozone toxicity if the level increases at 0.0007% per application.
  • Instability.
  • Not readily available.


  • Chronic or recurrent infections in the oral cavity.
  • Prophylaxis and prevention of dental caries.
  • Remineralization of pit and fissure caries, root and smooth surface caries.
  • Bleaching of discolored root canal treated teeth.
  • Sterilization of cavities, root canals, periodontal pockets, herpetic lesions.
  • Desensitization of extremely sensitive tooth necks.
  • Pre-washing of surgical sites.
  • Plaque control.
  • Contamination control.
