Oral Healthcare: Foundation for healthy life-A A +A
Monday, March 11, 2013
"Aside from brushing your teeth, flossing, and using mouthwash, we should also replace our toothbrushes every three to four months, follow a healthy diet, and limit our between-meal snacks," shared Dr. Jayme Concepcion, a Metro Dental resident dentist.
But the most important thing is to have a dental plan with your dentists to avoid complications including diabetes, chronic kidney disease, inflammation of the arteries, blood clots that lead to clogged arteries resulting to heart attacks or strokes, and worsening of respiratory diseases (when mouth bacteria reaches the lungs, therefore causing infection).
Metro Dental, the only dental center in the country that is dedicated to providing only the best oral healthcare, is devoted to giving dental care which can prevent these complications.
Using cutting-edge technology, Teeth Whitening, Orthodontics, Cosmetic Dentistry and Pediatric Dentistry, Metro Dental is able to provide these cutting-edge services. Led by the country’s top professional dentists, there is no doubt why Metro Dental is at the forefront of oral health care.
With 16 branches nationwide in major shopping malls, it is no surprise that Metro Dental is able to contribute to the oral healthcare of most Filipinos. Customer accessibility and convenience are given great consideration in setting up Metro Dental’s branches.
"Whatever your dental problems are, you have Metro Dental to give you the best dental treatment possible. We give you unparalleled convenience such that we strategically chose the malls for the location of our clinics. For as long as the malls are open, our clinics are open too, seven days a week," said Frederic Peignon, Metro Dental chief operating officer.
Metro Dental adheres to the highest standards when it comes to patient care investing in a complete line of state-of-the-art equipment that makes dental visits shorter and less painful. It has a spacious and welcoming reception area that is comparable to a spa and a roster of friendly staff that promptly assists you in whatever it is that you need. You can definitely feel its world-class service the moment you step into their clinic.
"Not only that. Our treatment rooms are designed to give our patients a delightful experience. While seated on our state-of-the-art dental chair, you may choose to view a blockbuster movie or listen to your favorite music because our treatment rooms are equipped with a flat screen monitor and ultra-modern sound system. They are designed to give our patients a delightful experience. So no more dreading your next dental appointment," Frederic added.
Having good oral hygiene is comparable to being thoroughly equipped for battle. It does wonders for boosting one’s confidence and general aura. That is why together with the Philippine Dental Association, Metro Dental rallies behind the promotion of good oral healthcare and the establishment of good dental hygiene for children, a good start for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
With this year's theme, "Ngipin Pangalagaan, Sakit Maiiwasan," Metro Dental revealed the direct link between oral healthcare and overall health and well-being.
To reiterate, oral healthcare can be a huge determining factor for overall health. As the age-old adage goes, "Prevention is better than cure." Even a simple toothache, when ignored, can be the cause of deeper medical problems.
Everyday habits that people deem harmless, such as consuming sweets, soda, and drinking coffee may have adverse effects on one’s oral health.
Metro Dental understands the importance of these factors and aims to raise awareness about proper oral health care, which is why Metro Dental is one with The Philippine Dental Association in celebrating Dental Health Month in promoting the value of Dental Health as part of keeping good overall.
It is never too late to get started on proper dental care. Let this be an occasion to begin our awareness of the merits and significance of practicing good oral healthcare. With Metro Dental, you can improve our health and your life, one smile at a time.
