Hi all,

I just back from visiting my friend in NM.  My main reason for the visit was to get my teeth worked on in Mexico.  My friend was on her 3rd visit to Mexico to get her teeth fixed.  She had many recommendations made to her by people in NM who went to this place in Mexico to get their teeth worked on.

Well i got more work done then i was anticipating and in a very short period of time.  I went on Saturday the weekend before last.  I was only going that day but they said that i would have to come back because i had alot of infection in my mouth, so i went back last Wednesday.  Well not a short drive (10 hrs.) but well worth the trips.

After both times i got worked on people were amazed that my mouth wasn't blown up like a balloon.  I also didn't have much pain after the procedures.  Another great side effect is how great i feel now!.  My friend suggested that maybe because i was fighting off all that infection is why i haven't felt good in awhile, the dentist put me on antibiotics for the mouth infections.  Before i had my teeth worked on i was really fatigued all the time and now i pop out of bed ready for the day.  Maybe the infection is why despite all of my attempts (BTD and exercise), i just was not feeling well.

Well i guess this is sort of a testimonial, but i thought i would put it here because i have more questions.  I have also been fighting candida, does anyone know if the candida could of been caused by the mouth infections or vice versa?.  Is there anything else i should be doing to fully recover besides taking antibiotics and probiotics?.

Thanks!
Mickey

how about the surgery recovery protocol?
glad to hear you are feeling better already, and yes, bad teeth do wreck havoc to your immune system.

Mickey,
Do you mind telling us which town in Mexico you went to?  Many people cannot afford the prices in the USA, and therefore get NO dental work done.  Very sad situation.  Teeth are a major factor in health.

Candida and oral health can be very closely related.  As far as which comes first, it's hard to say.  :-)

Just work on them both!!

Thanks Lola and Victoria,

Victoria, I know what you mean about not being able to afford getting dental work done.  I went to the dentist here about a year and a half ago.  He told me then that i needed extensive dental work done.  I have not been able to get anything done until now.  I was at the point that i couldn't wait anymore.  I was planning on going to a dentist here, but knew i would only be able to afford to get a couple of things done.  Then i thought about my friend in NM who has been going to Mexico to get her dental work done.  If i would of had the work done here it would have cost me around $4,000.  In Mexico i paid $1,000, with the travel expenses it was 1,500, saved by staying with my friend.  

I am still amazed on how much better i feel in general!.  I did a candida spit test this morning to see if it's improved.  Well there was hardly anything, just a couple of very short tendrils.  Last time i did the test, as soon as i spit there were numerous tendrils and they sank within minutes.  It's been half an hour now and nothing has sunk to the bottom, everything is staying at the top.  

The place i went to is called Fierro Dental Clinic in Las Palomas, Mexico .  It is only 2 1/2 blocks from the border.  They have a parking lot just before the border, then you can just walk in.  I think it is the cleanest dental office i've ever been too.

The phone number is 1-800-292-0981.  The girl who answers the phone speaks english.  Alot of the dentists don't speak very good english, but they use a translator.  I am very impressed about how thorough they are, they had 3 different dentists observe my x-rays, including the owner.  I think all of the dentists have been trained at the New Mexico College of Dentistry.  

If you need any other info. just PM me.

Mickey, Could you tell me the name of the city closest in this country?  Is it near El Paso?  Thanks for sharing.  My husband needs lots of work done also, and has been talking about Mexico.....

Trish,

I think the closest city is Las Crucas, New Mexico.  There are other little towns closer, but i can't remeber the name of them.  Las Crucas is a couple of hours away from Las Palomas, Mexico.  If you need more specific information let me know, i can ask my friend.

Good Luck!
Mickey

That is fine.  Just one more, you said it is right across the border, so it must be to the west from Las Cruces, right?  I don't have a map, but will get it out tomorrow.  I do thank you!!

Trish,

I'm not sure if it's to west of Las Cruces or not?.  Since i don't live there i didn't really pay attention to what direction we were going.  If you can't figure it out with the map let me know.  I can ask my friend, she's been to the dentist a few times.

Mickey, you said this dentist is 2-1/2 blocks from the border. Is there much "action" present, as in border patrol, violence, etc?  Reason I ask is, a friend of mine's sister went to Mexico for cancer treatment and said she was a nervous wreck the whole time she was there from the above mentioned goings on. Thanks.

Italybound,

There are street vendors that may approach you, but they are pretty good about backing off if you say your not interested in their stuff.

I didn't notice alot of police presence.  Their are alot of americans that visit there, not just the dentist but the stores.  There is a store before the dental office.  It is called the Pink Store, alot of americans hang out in the store and they also have a restaurant.  Alot of older people go there to get their dental work done.  Last time i went to the dentist there was a lady (probably in her 70's) who came by herself to the dentist.  I think most of the americans hang out in the stores, you won't see alot of them on the streets.  I would not recommend you take your car over the border, that's why we parked it before the border patrol.  I feel like it is pretty safe, but i didn't go by myself.  I would definitely keep a tight hold onto your purse.  I don't think about this stuff too much, sometimes i think because i'm soo tall that people wouldn't mess with me.

Mickey
