The problem of paradontium inflammatory diseases treatment is one 
of the most urgent problems in stomatology. In spite of an 
abundance of existing remedies and methods of treatment this 
problem is far from solution. It was noted periodontal pocket 
microflora accustomization to antibacterial preparations and 
allergic reactions and side effects to them. The importance of 
searching  new remedies becomes evident. The use of ozonized 
solutions for complex treatment of inflammatory diseases of 
paradontium is of great interest. For microbiological experiment a 
single irrigation of pathological periodontal pockets with 
ozonized solutions (water, olive oil) was performed. The pocket 
contents before and after irrigation were inoculated on a blood 
agar. Microscopic specimens were prepared simultaneously. In 18-20 
hours the grown colonies were counted. After comparison of the 
obtained results a substantial antibacterial activity of ozonized 
solutions was revealed. Number of colonies before irrigation was 
48.65.1 and after irrigation it was 6.20.3. the specimens show a 
significant decrease and qualitative changes of pathological 
pockets contents.
