Abstract:

Aim: The aim of this pilot study was to estimate the clinical efficiency of the ozone gel therapy in patients with dry socket.

Objective: the objective of this study is to investigate the effect of ozone on dry socket/alveolar osteitis as it has remarkable healing properties with its spontaneous and catalyzed breakdown of the molecule it is suitable for use in the mouth during surgical interventions

Method: 5 patients were chosen with ozone and 5 patients with alvogyl as a control. 1ml syringes were filled with ozone olive oil for the experiment. This Ozone was placed in the same way as alvogyl which includes placing alvogyl in the socket after irrigation and debris removal. After the placement, the socket was observed for 2 days and the patient is called for follow up. These patients will be medically fit, adult male or female in age range of 15-60 who have undergone non-surgical extraction, not taking analgesic, antibiotic or oral contraceptive, and who does not smoke.

Results: Fisher Exact Test was used to analyze the clinical signs and severity of pain.

Conclusion: Over the years little progress has been made in establishing firm conclusions as to how best dry socket should be managed. Our recommendations are based on a review of the literature, being the best available evidence on which to base our clinical practice.

Keywords: ozone therapy, dry socket, alveolitis, ozone gel
