Dentistry & Hyperbarics

In the specialty of Dentistry and Oral Maxillofacial Surgery, hyperbaric therapy accelerates healing and decreases inflammation. In addition, it works synergistically with antibiotics to fight infection and will mobilize stem cells to the injured tissue, allowing it to regenerate and revitalize.

Common conditions where hyperbarics may be helpful include osteoradionecrosis of the jaw (plus its prevention), facial flap healing, nerve injury, dental infections, post-operative pain and swelling, facial infections, and many others.

Hyperbaric therapy has been demonstrated to substantially reduce inflammation throughout the body. It drives increased levels of oxygen into the body, which travels through the plasma, subsequently reducing inflammation and pain, improving long term outcomes, and reducing overall interventions.

Osteoradionecrosis of the Jaw

  • Hyperbarics in Conjunction with Penicillin Facilities a More Efficient & Longer Lasting Recovery
  • Promotes Angiogenesis
  • Promotes Overall Wound Healing

Mandibular Osteomyelitis

  • Relief of Pain
  • Decreased Swelling
  • Works Synergistically with Antibiotics to Fight Infection

Periodontal Disease

  • Hinders Growth of Subgingival Obligate Anaerobes and Facultative Anaerobes
  • Improved Healing of Infected Periodontium

Dental Implants

  • Prepares Bone and Adjacent Tissue for Implant Retrieval
  • Reduction in Biofilm Growth
  • Reduction in Long-Term Implant Failure Rate

Mandible Reconstruction

  • Promotes Overall Wound Healing
  • Leads to Epithelization of the Wound
  • Stem Cell Mobilization
  • Minimizes Pain & Discomfort
  • Reduces Swelling
