Ozone Dentistry at Center for Holistic Dentistry, Los Angeles

Healthy and white teeth with ozone treatment

Ozone is among the most misunderstood elements. It is often mistakenly referred to as a pollutant, and many people think it is unhealthy. In fact, the opposite is true. Ozone is a variation of oxygen, which has many therapeutic uses. Its benefits have been researched and documented extensively.

Why ozone?

Ozone is a natural substance, which can often take the place of caustic chemicals and invasive techniques.

  • Kills infective microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi on contact
  • Improves blood flow
  • Amplifies immune responses
  • Speeds healing and decreases risk of post-surgical infections

The procedure

We create customized trays, which connect to a machine that directly delivers therapeutic ozone. The upper tray is worn and connected to the machine for about 10-12 minutes, then the process is repeated for the lower tray. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes.

Your trays are reusable and will be kept here in our office for future use, so you won’t need to have impressions taken every time.
