Committed to continuing her education in order to treat her patients with the most up-to-date information and modern technology, Dr. Yolanda Cintron recently attended the spring conference of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) in Puerto Rico.
Dr. Cintron attended two days of symposiums focused on understanding new scientific discoveries in holistic oral health – like your oral health’s tie to eye disease, and biocompatible dentistry as treatment for adult onset cancers – and the continued benefits of the biological approach to dentistry, whether in the field of periodontics or the topic of the oral immune system and its effect on the rest of the human body’s immune system.
Presentations focused on topics such as: the symbiotic relationship between oral health and overall well-being, how chronic inflammation and disease can be better controlled, salivary immune function and digestion, airway-focused orthotropics (facial growth guidance), and, simply enough, ways to improve both general health and dental health.
There was a spotlight on mercury-induced toxicity, with presentations covering new research assessing dental amalgam safety concerns and discussing adult dental amalgam (ADA) Syndrome. Silver fillings, also known as amalgam fillings, contain mercury, which can play a role in the development of some diseases. In order to replace mercury-containing toxic fillings with composite alternatives, the mercury must be removed carefully in a controlled environment. Dr. Cintron participated in sessions about this matter, discussing intravenous push EDTA calcium and ozone detoxification therapy in the management of disease.
To discuss the replacement of amalgam fillings with non-toxic, non-mercury fillings, or to talk about holistic dentistry and its benefit to your total well-being, schedule a consultation with Dr. Yolanda Cintron at Fort Lauderdale’s International Center for Dental Excellence.
