Smile with healthy teeth!


Do yourself, your family members or any friends you know had spend hundreds or thousand in braces or invisalign, teeth whitening etc?  I am 99% sure is yes!  More and more people are willing to spend money to beautify their smile with perfect teeth.

For this reason, this blog post is very very important ok!  Beautiful and healthy teeth comes together with healthy gums, but a lot of people only focus on teeth whitening but neglected the gums which is the foundation of healthy teeth.

If we contracted gum disease, our gums may be too weak to hold and secure our teeth, then we'll be "bo gay" (no teeth).  If you "bo gay", then you can only drool over my blog reviews on food, cos' you no teeth to chew any more!  Isn't it a tragic!?!

This is my son, Darren's baby photo, with a big smile showing his healthy gums.
He was (and is) really adorable, but I don't think grown ups will look adorable without teeth lolxxx....

To avoid putting ourselves at risk of being "bo gay", we have to look out for the following -

Symptoms of Gum Disease
Images from Wikipedia

* gums bleed easily even with gentle toothbrushing

* red & swollen gums

* persistent bad breath

* receding gums

* unstable teeth

The story doesn't end with losing your teeth, gum disease also may leads to other health issues such as Cerebrovascular (stroke), Cardiovascular disease, diabetes and pre-mature births.  Scary leh......  祸从口出,病从口入。(chinese idiom meaning trouble may caused by words from a person's mouth, illness enters through body by mouth).  So for the sake of both beauty and health we should take good care of our teeth and gums!


* Make regular visits to the dentist (no matter how much you dreads)

* Eat a balanced diet
- dairy products for calcium which are fortifying teeth and bones
- fruits and vegetables which are good source of vitamin A & C
- meat & eggs for proteins

* Good personal oral care
brush your teeth thoroughly at least twice a day
clean in between your teeth every day
- follow by mouth rinsing with anti-bacterial mouthwash
