Three oxygen atoms combine to form ozone, also known as triatomic oxygen or trioxygen. At the stratosphere, ozone occurs naturally in concentrations of 1 to 10 ppm as a gas. Ozone's molecular oxygen can quickly transform into atomic oxygen depending on environmental factors like pressure, heat, and short half-lives. Due to its chemical makeup, ozone is the third most potent oxidant that does not have radical characteristics. In comparison to atmospheric oxygen, ozone is more energetic, 1.6 times more dense, and 10 times more soluble in water. In 1840, Sconbein called this chemical "Ozein", which is Greek for "to smell". Dr. Fisch employed ozonated water in dentistry for the first time in the nineteenth century and shared it with German surgeon Dr. Erwin Payr. Modern science is applied in dentistry, but it is also evolving and changing throughout time. Ozone therapy can be used as a model to aid in healing and is an alternative to conventional methods. We now perform less invasive, more conservative work thanks to emerging technology.
