What is ozone therapy?
At Holistic Smiles LA, Dr. Monempour builds a custom ozone station that makes fresh ozonated water, ozonated organic olive oil, and ozonated organic coconut oil daily. The use of ozone is incredibly beneficial, and the team incorporates ozonated water into all treatments, from cleanings to extractions and more! In addition, ozonated organic oils can be used for topical skin applications or as mouth rinses for oil pulling. The practice only uses medical-grade oxygen and organic oils.
Ozone therapy stimulates your immune system, oxygenates the cells in your mouth, and increases blood flow to your gum tissue. When combined, these factors can significantly reduce the risk of gum disease and other issues, preserving your smile for years to come. Ozone also helps kill anaerobic bacteria, the type that doesn’t like oxygen, and has been found in the oral cavity of patients with gingival and periodontal disease.

What does ozone therapy involve?
At Holistic Smiles LA, Dr. Monempour offers ozone therapy to every patient at no additional charge during treatment.
As a member of the American Dental Association and the International Association of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), he has extensive training in this advanced treatment technique.
During ozone therapy, Dr. Monempour uses an ozone generator and a handheld device to apply ozone gas, ozonated water, and/or ozonated oil to your teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues. The ozone fills your mouth, killing viruses, anaerobic bacteria, and other microorganisms. It also helps break down plaque –– a thin film of bacteria, saliva, and food particles that sticks to your teeth.
Afterward, Dr. Monempour rinses out your mouth. The process is quick, painless, and safer than traditional treatments like fluoride, oral rinses, and pharmaceutical drugs.
