Integrative Medicine and Dentistry Using On-Site Vitamin C IV Therapy
For the last two decades Dr. Vladimir Gashinsky of the Holistic Dental Center of New Jersey has transformed his practice to primarily focus on integrative and biological therapies…
Partnering with medical providers, the Holistic Dental Center of New Jersey is the first in the state to offer patients specific IV therapies and infusions for dental procedures, such as oral surgery and safe removal of silver mercury amalgam fillings.
IV Vitamin C has demonstrated incredibly positive effects. The ascorbic acid drastically reduces discomfort and pain experienced by patients while improving the healing of the wound and significantly enhancing recovery time. Through a high-dose vitamin C infusion, the vitamin C enters the blood circulation directly and does not have to be absorbed by the intestinal mucosa first. Especially individuals with a reduced intestinal absorption capacity benefit from this.
IV Infusions for Oral Surgeries
For many individuals oral surgery is a feared experience – whether it be the surgical procedure or the process of post-operative healing. Because these types of surgeries involve deeper bone structures, our team of biological wellness professionals offer patients an infusion to optimize recovery and healing.
Over the course of treatment an infusion is administered intravenously the day prior, during the dental surgery, and for two days following the procedure. The IV infusion is a combination of Vitamin C, anti-inflammatory vitamins, B12, D, and E. All have demonstrated anti inflammatory properties, aiding in both recovery and wound healing.
In addition, IV antibiotics are used. Unlike oral antibiotics, the IV antibiotics bypass the gut avoiding disruption and damage to the guts flora keeping it healthy and reducing a need for supplemental probiotics.
While IV antibiotics are administered directly into the bloodstream, the combination of vitamins – particularly Vitamin C is inherently utilized by the body to make more connective tissue, thus naturally boosting healing and recovery time.
IV Therapy using Vitamin C During Mercury Amalgam Removal
Mercury is a powerful oxidant and the use of IV Vitamin C during mercury amalgam removal can be very beneficial. Safe mercury amalgam removal is performed at the Holistic Dental Center following the SMART protocol and for an additional level of protection we offer the ability to have a Vitamin C Infusion during treatment. Since Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, it can assist in preventing any free-radical formation in addition to boosting the immune system.
