Damaged teeth - whether broken or fragmented, do not just look ugly. They may also severely impact your functional capacity to chew and digest food. Installing fixed prosthodontics such as dental crowns and bridges allow for your tooth to be salvaged, instead of extracted.

Friends and family often ask me how to find the best dentist and dental clinic in Singapore for their needs.

As a clinician who's headed a dental group over the last 10 years, I've also seen many patients who are frequently confused over their dental treatment options. For example:

  • How come dental treatment costs can vary so much from one clinic to the next?
  • What are the different "kinds" of dentists and dental clinics in Singapore?
  • When should you see a GP dentist, versus a specialist?

In addressing these issues, I hope to share some of my personal insights as an "insider" to help you receive the best dental care for your condition.

This guide tell will you all you need to know about Invisalign in Singapore, including perennial favourites such as:

  • How much you can expect to pay for Invisalign treatment in Singapore
  • The different types of Invisalign treatments available 
  • My opinion on the key differences between Invisalign and traditional braces (as someone who still uses both on a regular basis)

Dentistry. Welcome to the hardest undergraduate degree in Singapore. I’m not kidding you right here. Don’t take it from me, take it from professors who have been running the curriculum, even ones from the Faculty of Medicine in NUS YLLSoM.

Your road to getting a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) degree is going to be filled with countless hours of sweat and tears.

You will break down, you will cry at some point in time. It's not a matter of “whether” but “when”.

This article is a guest post by Dr T C Phua, President of the College of General Dental Practitioners (Singapore).

Looking to straighten your teeth? Perhaps you've come across cheap "teeth alignment kits" sold on Carousell that look similar to Invisalign, with prices ranging from $8 to $20.

You may also be confused as to whether you need to see a general dentist or an orthodontist for braces treatment in Singapore. This post will hopefully help to clear things up!

In the world of dentistry today, there's a whole lot of unknown factors where dental implant costs are concerned.

When you buy a car, you want to know exactly what you're paying for - be it the car make and country of origin, OMV/COE price, or fuel efficiency. A 4 series BMW coupe, for example, will naturally cost you much more than a Mazda sedan.
