Hong Kong dentist explains the impact of dental care on your overall health

Oral health care is critical. Not only does it lead to a happy and healthy smile, it has also been linked to the overall health and wellbeing of patients. As a holistic dentist, Dr. Titania Tong understands the link between good oral care and good health and helps to ensure that her patients have both.

According to Dr. Tong, the key to good oral care is to follow the basics. While many patients understand that brushing and flossing should be a daily habit, many tend to go through the motions of brushing instead of taking the time to do it effectively and thoroughly. Further, many patients skip flossing for a few minutes of sleep. If this sounds familiar, it's important to note that patients who practice good brushing and flossing habits every day tend to have fewer dental problems than those who skip the practice. Brushing removes food particles and bacteria from the surfaces of your teeth, while flossing removes the same particles from in between the teeth where your brush simply cannot reach. Left alone, this bacteria can quickly grow and cause damage in the form of gum disease and tooth decay.

Along with good at-home care, visiting your dentist every six months is critical to keeping your mouth healthy. These visits provide you with a professional cleaning by a trained professional using advanced equipment to better clean your teeth, remove any built up tartar, and address those hard-to-reach areas. It also gives your dentist a chance to examine your mouth to identify any trouble areas that need to be treated early.

Additionally, patients who want to make sure that the health of their mouth is in top shape, should also watch their nutrition habits. Foods and beverages that are high in sugar content can damage the teeth leading to cavities and gum disease. On the other hand, foods that are high in water content such as crunchy vegetables are good for the health of your mouth and your body.

With the health of your mouth, and your body, at stake, remember the importance of dental care. Call the Hong Kong office of Dr. Tong today to schedule an appointment and be on your way to a happier, healthier smile.

After many consultations, she continues to be committed to achieving my desired functional and cosmetic results and I have no hesitation in recommending her services for all manner of dental treatment.
