Give your smile the treatment with your mercury free family dentist in HK
What many people perceive when they think of the dentist is a person who is concerned about the state of their teeth and gums. This would seem accurate, since most of us grew up visiting the dentist to have our teeth examined and treated for cavities. In the general sense, most dentists do not move past the mouth in terms of health considerations.
Though the most common, this level of care was not and is not all there is to dentistry. Even general dental practitioners are becoming very aware, due to reports of ongoing studies, of the impact the mouth has on the body. It is now common knowledge that the risk of health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, strokes, even Alzheimer’s disease is increased in those with chronic dental problems like gum disease.
The oral-systemic connection is no secret to holistic dental practitioners like Dr. Titania Tong. In our practice, we operate from the standpoint that whatever goes on in the mouth can cause a reaction in the body, affecting general health and wellbeing. From our perspective, the best treatment of any smile comes from healthy mercury free practices. As your family dentist in HK, Dr. Tong uses only the safest, proven dental materials as she seeks to maintain and restore oral health for each individual patient.
Our patients are treated with outstanding care in which mercury is not a part of any treatment. In addition to avoiding this toxic substance, Dr. Tong has also received training in the specific protocol outlined by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology for the removal of existing amalgam mercury fillings. This protocol greatly reduces the exposure a patient may incur during the removal process.
The materials used in dental treatments are only one aspect of care. Your holistic dentist also sees the value in the provision of preventive, restorative, or cosmetic treatments using minimally invasive techniques as much as possible. When you choose a holistic dentist to handle your dental needs, you will be empowered as a collaborator in your own dental health care plan. Dr. Tong and her team treat patients with respect and compassion, explaining the details of oral health and treatment options. Together with your dentist, you can design the treatment plan that will best meet your dental needs.
