The combined injuries of maxillofacial region make up special place among the bones and tissues of the human body as a result of its functional and cosmetic importance. Soft tissue wounds of the maxillofacial injuries have number of distinguishing features that differs from traumas of the other parts of the organism. In this article the number of information given about physical, chemical features of the ozone and its influence for the healing of the combined soft tissue wounds of the maxillofacial injuries.
Purpose. Study the influence of the ozone for the healing process of the combined soft tissue wounds of maxillofacial region and assessment of the effect of the ozone for the epithelialization process of the soft tissue wounds of the maxillofacial region.
Research material. The essence of the research comprises the results of the investigation of the 62 examined and treated patients with combined soft tissue wounds of the maxillofacial region who is applied ozone and traditional methods of the treatment.
Results. A comparative evaluation of the results of the treatment of the combined soft tissue wounds of the maxillofacial region with the use of ozone and other ordinary traditional methods of treatment such as chlorhexidine bigluconate is carried out. This modified new method of treatment of the soft tissue wounds with ozone has following advantages: accelerates the period of healing process, improves phagocytosis activity of the defensive cells, increases migration of epithelial cells, activates fibroblasts and synthesis of the collagen. It is necessary to consider that intravenous infusion of the ozone with sodium chlorine is more effective than application of ozone gas itself to the injured region. In addition to this, the area receives even more oxygen in the process of application ozone water with ozone olive oil.
Conclusions. Thus, treatment of the combined soft tissue wounds with the use of ozone is more effective than traditional methods of treatment. The process of epithelization started earlier among the patients who received intravenous ozonized sodium chloride infusion and application of ozone olive oil rather than traditional ways of treatments.
