In June 2016, I had sudden onset of lack of energy, weight loss and hip and sciatic leg pain. It was difficult to walk, play my sports and I felt agitated most of the time. Sleep was also an issue. I have been in the medical profession for more than 40 years. I combine a holistic and traditional approach in how I treat my body. I tried everything to resolve all my symptoms including a microdiscectomy (very aggressive for me) which did relieve the hip and sciatic leg pain. However, I still continued to lose weight and my energy level was not back to normal. But, an amazing thing started to happen which led to my recovery. My teeth began to literally fall out of my mouth around the beginning of Sept 2016. I called my daughter (who had a successful surgery with Dr. Cintron the year before) and obtained the phone number for the practice.
“The amount of metal, black roots, bacteria and toxicity were mind boggling. It’s no wonder that I was so so sick for eight long months. Who would ever think that it was related to my teeth?”
I called Dr. Cintron’s office and my healing journey began. I was given an appointment immediately due to the fact that my front bottom tooth flew out of my mouth the day and before. With Doctor Cintron, the entire experience is all about the patient. The environment of the practice is professional and every employee is caring, kind and supportive. Education is key and many hours were spent explaining to me how my treatment plan would flow. Joe was very patient and answered all my questions. My surgery was February 9, 2017. I had extensive work done and never had pain. The oral sedation was truly amazing. The next day, I awoke pain-free and felt a definite shift in my body. My energy is back, I am playing all sports and my appetite improves daily. Six days after surgery I had a post-op appointment. Dr. Cintron and Joe were impressed with how wonderful everything looked and truly excited for me that I felt so healthy. Dr. Cintron invited my husband in to see computer slides of my surgery. The amount of metal, black roots, bacteria, and toxicity were mind boggling. It’s no wonder that I was so so sick for eight long months. Who would ever think that it was related to my teeth? Not too surprising since I had spent many years in the dental chair.
Well, I am one of the lucky ones for sure. Not only did I have the greatest holistic experience with a focus on my overall health, I had the greatest dentist and staff. Now I see why patients come from all over the world to The International Center for Dental Excellence.
Thank you, Dr. Cintron and staff, for all the hard work you do helping patients to achieve greater dental and physical health.
P.S. Dr. Cintron will not take full credit for her excellent work. She humbly knows she has help on her side from up above. I love that. “Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits–who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:1-5
