Sterilization in Saint Paul, MN
At the Minnesota Center for Minimally Invasive Dentistry we utilize state-of-the-art sterilization technologies and protocols to keep you as safe as possible. Here are three sterilization measures that effectively neutralize bacteria:
Ozone water (O3) is the result of recombining oxygen molecules to create a new allotrope of Oxygen (O2). Ozone is an oxidizer; once it is introduced into an oral environment it destroys bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites, while keeping healthy cells intact. We use ozone in conjunction with fillings as an antimicrobial agent. We also use ozonated water to eliminate infectious agents in dental cavities and dental pulp.
Hypochlorous Acid Fogger
HOCl is an effective disinfectant used to sanitize surfaces in dental and orthodontic offices, as well as oral-maxillofacial surgeries. Hypochlorous acid works faster, and is safer, than traditional chlorine bleach; it is non-irritating, non-corrosive, and immediately effective.
Surgically Clean Air
Our office is outfitted with medical grade air purifiers to clean and sterilize indoor air. These multi-stage filtration systems pull pollutants like VOCs, mold, viruses, pollen, dust particles and bio-aerosols from the air we breathe. These powerful purifiers continuously circulate and filter air to ensure that the contaminants that we remove from your smile do not live on in the ether.
Sterilization is the cornerstone of the care that we provide at the Minnesota Center for Minimally Invasive Dentistry. Give our office a call at (651) 699-2822 to learn more and to schedule a consultation with our team.
What Our Patients Are Saying
After working with Dr. Malterud for a couple of weeks to get the right fit for my NTI, the results are great. I may still get a headache but only for a few hours and not severe.

It's hard to believe that something so small could change my life in such a big way. I have been pain free without drugs or surgery for years now. My teeth have been saved from more damage because I don't grind them any more.
