(businesspress24) - MARKHAM, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 10/20/15 -- Dr. Susie Ang, a and the Greater Toronto area, says advanced dental care at her practice is often based on the "Mouth-Body Connection" -- the notion that the health of an individual''s teeth, gums, and oral structures is connected to his or her overall health. Dr. Ang says this approach is often referred to as . "A holistic approach to dentistry is important because the teeth and their supporting structures, including the jaw joint and the muscles of mastication, are all part and parcel of the body. Therefore, problems that occur in the mouth can have implications on overall health."

In fact, Dr. Ang says there is evidence to suggest that common conditions such as gum inflammation and infection can influence the course of diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and even lead to a low birth-weight in infants. In addition, she notes that bite problems can lead to numerous dental and overall health concerns, including teeth breakage, migraines, , chronic pain, , and others. However, with a to oral exams and treatment, these and other wellness concerns are taken into account. "Patients with an airway problem that results in a constricted upper arch can benefit from upper arch expansion to improve the airway and enhance the appearance of the smile. Patients with bite problems that result in chronic pain can often eliminate that pain without the need for medication once the bite problem is corrected."

Dr. Ang says can also benefit from principles. For instance, she uses mercury-free filling materials to treat cavities, which provides the affected tooth with a more natural appearance and eliminates the patient''s exposure to mercury, not to mention the practice''s need to dispose of the material later. Thus, she notes, holistic sensibilities even extend to creating a "green" office. "By using mercury-free dental materials and embracing computer-based patient filing systems, we''re able to minimize the impact our office has on the environment. Plus, our use of digital x-rays dramatically reduces your exposure to radiation compared with previous dental x-ray techniques."

Ultimately, Dr. Ang says a holistic approach to , as well as to treatment and office technology, is about giving individuals an experience that takes their overall wellness into account and minimizing the impact on the environment. "Those are some of the ways we can continue to focus on providing our patients with the safest, most effective, and most convenient experience possible!"
