A Protruding Jaw May Affect More Than Just Your Appearance, According To This Experienced Oral Surgeon
Our jaw plays an important role both aesthetically and functionally. Misaligned jaws (when a person’s upper and lower teeth do not perfectly meet) is a real condition, and they are usually due to genetics.
When your teeth don't fit together properly, you can develop problems not only in your teeth themselves, but also in the gums, the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) or the muscles that move your jaw.
DxD invited Dr Ho Kok Sen, an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon to answer readers' questions through a DxD Session on how jaw surgery can help to solve these issues.
Your Knee Pain Might Be More Serious Than You Think! This Orthopaedic Surgeon Tells You What To Look Out For
Nearly half of elderly Singaporeans suffer from knee pain, and 23.7% of Singaporean adults between the age of 18 and 50 are reported to be suffering from arthritis or chronic joint problems.
People often dismiss knee pain as nothing serious because it's just so common. However, it's important to realise that if your knee hurts, it's actually sending help signals to you. Don't ignore it for too long, as it might develop into something dangerous!
Here's what you need to know.
Involuntary hospitalisation is something that's rarely talked about in Singapore.
A DxD reader sent in a question to find out if he could be detained at IMH by force if they feel that his condition has worsened. 5 years ago, he sought treatment at IMH for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). However, he discontinued the treatment because he felt that the medication was not helping him.
Dr Ng Beng Yeong, a renowned psychiarist in Singapore shared his expert advice with our reader on this issue.
Hint: Yes, in certain cases, you can be forcibly hospitalised under Section 10 of the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) Act (MHCTA).
