Services offered by the best general dentist in Central HK
General dentistry is a field of dentistry that is focused on prevention and conservative treatment when dental issues occur. Patients visiting their dentist regularly and taking good care of their oral health at home have a lower risk of developing concerns such as periodontal disease. This improves their chances of maintaining a healthier smile. Dr. Titania Tong, of Central HK offers a wide variety of services to her patients
When tooth decay occurs, fillings may be necessary to keep the condition from progressing. At Dr. Tong’s practice, she focuses on using tooth- coloured fillings which are more healthy than silver-mercury fillings and are more aesthetically pleasing.
Dental Crowns and Bridgework
Dental crowns and bridges are necessary when protecting or restoring a smile. Dr. Tong’s dental practice offers porcelain restorations that are made to correct dental issues and improve the overall appearance.
Teeth may be missing for a number of reasons, including extraction, disease, or trauma. Missing teeth can have a dramatic, negative impact on a patient’s smile, including the appearance and functionality. Patients can learn about the benefits that cosmetic full and partial dentures may provide in restoring the smile.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth that are impacted or have not fully erupted through the gums may require extraction. Dr. Tong can remove these teeth when necessary. Patients will need to undergo x-ray examinations to determine the exact anatomy and positioning of these teeth and then receive advise on the process of removal.
The temporomandibular joint, or the TMJ (jaw joint), is a joint that often causes problems for patients. There may be clicking, locking and other issues that may result in pain and discomfort. Patients diagnosed with TMD may visit Dr. Tong for treatment options using oral appliance therapy. Mouth guards are custom-made to fit into the patient’s mouth and realign the jaw, while protecting the teeth from wear and tear caused by grinding and clenching.
It is important to not only have a healthy smile, but a healthy body. Dr. Tong provides nutritional counselling to ensure patients understand that they will get the most out of their body when they pay good attention to their diet and exercise.Back to General Dentistry Page
