Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) facilitates the transfer of oxygen to the tissues of the human body. By doing so, it promotes healing of wounds and minimizes the typical recovery time for patients.  At this juncture, strictly within dental medicine, HBOT indicates the distribution of comprehensive oxygen at pressures greater than 1.4 atmosphere absolute (ATA), often in a series of treatments. It has many uses such as patient care, and wound care within standard medicine and dental medicine.


How patients can benefit from your care?

This fuller impact of the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy within dentistry is taking greater notice with newer research findings. There are new advancements in research regarding post radiotherapy cases, osteonecrosis of the jaw, osteomyelitis, periodontal disease, and dental implants, HBOT can even be used in conjunction with other procedures such as bone grafting.

What are the benefits of HBOT?


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy improves the quality of life for the patient in many areas when standard treatment isn’t working

Can HBOT help you?


Yes. It can benefit conditions where low oxygen levels (hypoxia) and inflammation are present
