AIM:   To evaluate the effect of ozonated oil on palatal wounds.
METHODS:   Eighteen patients were randomized and allocated to either the ozone group (n = 8) or control (n = 10) group. Free gingival graft surgery was performed, and post-harvested palatal wounds were treated with either 2 mL ozonated oil or control oil daily for 1 week. A planimetrical analysis analyzed the digital image for the wound sizes and shape factor at baseline, at 24 h, and days 5, 7, 14, 21, and 28, postoperatively. A cytological analysis used the keratinization and superficial cell indices at baseline, 24 h, and days 3, 7, 14, and 21 and the second and third months, postoperatively.
RESULTS:   Planimetrical results showed a significant (P ≤ 0.05) improvement in wound size on days 5, 7, 14, 21, and 28, postoperatively, in the ozone group compared to the control group. Cytological results showed a significant (P ≤ 0.001) improvement in epithelial healing on days 7, 14, and 21, and the second and third months, postoperatively, after the application of ozonated oil compared to control oil.
CONCLUSION:   Our results showed significant improvement in wound size and epithelial healing after topical ozonated oil application compared to control oil on palatal wounds.
