Isn’t it nice to know that a natural, drug-free alternative exists for many dental procedures? The doctors at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills bring the benefits of ozone disinfection to patients at their Beverly Hills, CA practice.
Disinfecting with ozone
Ozone is a triatomic oxygen, containing three atoms rather than
two (as in air we breathe). Ozone molecules try to kick off the extra
atom, resulting in an oxidative burst. Ozone is one of the most powerful
oxidants known to man, capable of destroying viruses, bacteria, and
fungus. Yet healthy human tissues are not harmed by it.
Here is how it works:
- Bacteria and other pathogens have cell walls that help them maintain shape.
- As ozone contacts the cell wall, the oxidative burst occurs.
- A hole is created, causing the organism to lose shape.
- Thousands of ozone collisions (in the span of seconds) continue to damage bacteria until cells die.
- Because oxidation is a physical process, bacteria cannot build immunity to ozone, as they can to drugs.
Ozone dentistry in our practice
Because ozone can be infused into water or oil, or administered as a gas, it is extremely versatile. We use ozone therapy in:
- Cavity prevention and treatment – Tooth decay is the result
of acidic excretions from oral bacteria that break down tooth
structures. Ozone kills bacteria in tiny crevices, and encourages
natural enamel remineralization – without drilling or discomfort.
- Root canals – Ozone serves a similar purpose in sterilizing
the pulp chamber and canals, reducing the risk of sealing harmful
bacteria inside a treated tooth.
- Gum disease – The therapeutic properties of ozone are
extremely beneficial in getting periodontal disease under control and
managing it effectively. This is the least invasive treatment available.

Been researching a place to get the Air-Flow teeth cleaning near Beverly Hills and found Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness.
This is the very first time i tried the air flow polishing method and found that it is 100% better and faster than traditional polishing.
My teeth felt smoother and appeared whiter. Sandra, my hygienist at the office did a fantastic job. By the way, the dental chair gives you a massage while you are getting your teeth cleaned.
The staff is super friendly. I highly recommend this place!
I don't even know where to begin. This is an exceptional dental office that utilizes methods and equipment in a holistic manner that one can't find anywhere else. From the beginning, Leeshane answered all of my questions and explained the procedure from start to finish. She really eased my fears about everything which pushed me to finally schedule an appointment that I had been putting off. Not only was she professional, but also personable. I felt her positive energy as soon as she answered the phone. It was like I had known her for years! Leeshane really went above and beyond for me. Contact her for any questions or to schedule an appointment. The dentists and staff do an excellent job. I highly recommend!
The office staff is extremely friendly and helpful, Dr. Kanter is very knowledgeable and personable. She did a 3D scan which identified problems areas that are impossible to detect with the standard X-ray. Very happy with my visit and will be returning to the office and following up with a review post-procedure.
