Petaluma, CA residents ask about dental ozone therapy using an IV drip method
Patients in Petaluma, CA are turning to Dr. Jurina Smida for her focus on holistic, biological dentistry practices that protect the health and safety of the patient. The use of dental ozone therapy is used to promote patient health in a safe, natural method. Medically, ozone may be administered in an IV drip, through injections, as a rinse, or topically.
Natural, effective, and safe
Ozone is already produced by our immune systems. It is made up of three oxygen atoms. In dental and medical procedures, it is completely safe when used in low doses. There are no side effects. In dentistry, ozone is used to cleanse, disinfect, and destroy bacteria.
Ozone supports the body’s own natural responses allowing it to destroy bacteria and then to heal on its own. Nothing foreign or potentially harmful is needed. Ozone has benefits for use in dental procedures.
- Cleansing a surgical site
- Deep cleaning teeth and gums
- Improving circulation and oxygenation
- Improving the body’s response to fight infection
Ozone stimulates the immune system
Medical ozone is known for its ability to stimulate circulation and activate the immune system. The body’s immune system produces messengers called cytokines which send messages to other immune cells. During ozone therapy, the cytokines set of a chain reaction to promote healing following procedures.
Major Autohemotherapy (MAH) involves intravenous treatment of the patient’s blood. A small amount of the patient’s blood is removed and infused with medical grade ozone. The blood is then reintroduced to the patient. The cytokines send messages to the immune cells activating the body’s own antioxidants and healing properties. The application of medical ozone stimulates the immune system to aid in healing following procedures.
Dr. Smida is fully trained in ozone dental protocols. She received her training the American College of Integrative Medicine and Dentistry. The ACIMD is the leading training organization for ozone in dentistry.
