Immunological pre- and post-treatment

In harmony with the body

Every interference field represents a burden for the human body. As a rule, our patients have, for example, been so burdened by chronic centres of inflammation in the oral cavity or jawbone for years that their general health suffers. Surgical interventions also initially represent a burden for the body and the immune system.
As we follow a holistic treatment approach in our practice, in which we understand all areas of the body in close interaction with each other, we analyse our patients’ blood for possible deficiencies and concomitant diseases even before an intervention. On this basis, we draw up an individualised medication regimen, through which patients and their immune system are strengthened even before a planned intervention, so that the body and immune system can once again function well and our patients can use the full power of their own regenerative ability.

In years of experience, we have been able to observe very good healing results – and our patients can usually recover much faster after an intervention and, after a relatively short period of absence, participate in life again without restrictions.

What exactly is the immunological pre- and post-treatment and what happens during it?

Before any major surgical intervention, such as an implantation, sinus lift or NICO removal, we first have our patients’ blood tested for certain parameters.

The blood analysis

The values that we have tested in the blood include the following:

  • Mercaptans/thioether reactivity
  • Vitamin D3 value
  • Leaky good profile
  • Mannose-binding lectin (MBL)
  • Lymphocyte transformation test (LTT)
  • Measurement of the partial thromboplastin time (PTT)
  • RANTES value

These values can be used to detect hidden inflammation and to identify allergic reactions, concomitant diseases and deficiency symptoms.

One of the most common deficiency symptoms in our latitudes is a vitamin D3 level that is too low. However, vitamin D3 is particularly important for the healing of wounds and bones, but also for strengthening the immune system and the body’s own regeneration and is therefore essential, especially before an operation – but also for general health.

The blood analysis is carried out at our practice in Berlin Charlottenburg by taking blood samples via the arm vein.
However, it is also possible to bring along already existing blood values or to contact a laboratory physician or a specialist directly who will perform such an analysis.

Individual medication regimen before and after an operation

If values that are important for strengthening the immune system, regeneration and healing are too low, we provide our patients with an individual medication schedule weeks before the planned procedure. This enables us and our patients with an already strengthened immune system to perform a surgical intervention.
If the medication regimen is maintained after the operation, the healing results are much better and we also observe that our patients recover from the operation much faster. As a result, patient downtime can be kept to a minimum, but treatment results and healing processes are also optimal and surprise us again and again.

High-dose vitamin C infusion

If a patient is weakened, it is also possible to supply him/her intravenously with high doses of vitamin C and various minerals during and after the surgical procedure. Each operation can initially put additional strain on and weaken the immune system. The high dosage of vitamin C, which goes directly into the blood, directly stimulates wound healing and the strengthening of the immune system. At the same time, an increased supply of vitamin C also prevents possible inflammations.

What role does vitamin D3 play?

Vitamin D3 plays a very important role in healing and regeneration after an operation – but vitamin D3 is also crucial for our general health.

We have been observing for years that most of our patients have a too low vitamin D3 level and that they have been able to recover much faster and better with the adjustment by taking vitamin D3 every day – and the healing results after operations are also much better.

Vitamin D3 is essential and vital for us. A lack of vitamin D3 is the cause of many diseases. Unfortunately, vitamin D deficiency often occurs in the population of countries above the 35th parallel – and Germany is one of them. This can hardly be absorbed through food, but is produced by the body through the UV-B radiation of the sun on our skin.

Only the sun’s UV-B radiation enables the body’s own vitamin D3 to be produced. In spring, summer and autumn, sufficient vitamin D3 can also be produced in our latitudes as soon as we are in the sun for a reasonable period of time. Without sun protection and without covering the face, arms and legs, a short stay of a few minutes 2-3 times a week is sufficient to stimulate the adequate formation of vitamin D. Reddening of the skin should be avoided in any case. Half of the time in which sunburn could otherwise develop unprotected is usually completely sufficient. There is absolutely no need to sunbathe for too long and it only causes sunburn or even severe skin damage.

In winter, sufficient vitamin D3 formation is not possible in Germany and other northern countries. Most people living in the north suffer from a vitamin D deficiency, which can only be compensated for by taking sufficient vitamin D3 every day with appropriate preparations.

Solariums work with UV-A rays, which are responsible for a quick tan and do not stimulate the production of vitamin D3. Therefore, a vitamin D deficiency cannot be prevented by visiting a solarium.
