I had the unfortunate experience last month of having to have a root canal. I’ve heard horror stories and was very concerned about the pain and the after-effects, so I decided to do some hyperbaric oxygen before and after the procedure. I’m so glad I did. It’s possible that the dentist was just that good, but…outside of the ibuprofen that he gave me at his office after the procedure, I didn’t have to take any pain medicine or antibiotics.
We know that hyperbaric oxygen is anti-inflammatory and we know that bacteria don’t like oxygen, so it makes sense that it would be a great tool after dental work to prevent any complications and pain.
Of course, after that experience I went and looked at the research and we have information about the beneficial effects of hyperbaric oxygen on bone infection after a dental abscess. There’s also quite a bit of research on the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen after radiation to the jaw for other issues.
It’s so nice to continue to find more benefits for hyperbaric oxygen outside of the traditional use of brain injuries, strokes and wound healing. We continue to learn that hyperbaric oxygen is good for such a variety of things.
