[Ozone therapy in treatment of local sluggish suppurative inflammation of maxillofacial soft tissues].

[Article in Russian]


Combined local and general ozone therapy was used in 30 patients with local sluggish pyoinflammatory diseases of the maxillofacial soft tissues. The results were compared to those in 33 patients administered no ozone therapy. Ozone therapy decreased the duration of treatment more than 2-fold due to antibacterial effect and stimulation of nonspecific and immunological reactivity. Lack of obvious contraindications and selective activity and universal immunocorrective effect recommend ozone therapy for wide use in this patient population irrespective of the type of inflammatory reaction.
