Antioxidants and Oral Health

What are Antioxidants?

Antioxidants are a natural substance that prevents oxidation and removes potentially damaging agents in living organisms, and in your mouth.

In dentistry, we use antioxidants to help our patients heal naturally. Most often, they are used to help speed up the healing process when a patient is experiencing inflammation due to a number of causes. 

Topical Antioxidants and Dentistry 

Topical antioxidants are becoming a widely popular choice for dentists to help their patients deal with cold sores, ulcerations, and other oral issues. At Coshocton Dentistry, we offer AO ProVantage, a topical remedy that is made from natural ingredients such as apple skins. 

This antioxidant remedy is an alternative to your typical steroid treatments.
