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.

Having worked as a dental surgeon in the public and private sector for a good number of years now, I've seen a lot of strange practices in the dental industry.

In particular, social media platforms have seen an explosion of irresponsible dental marketing. Examples include:

  • Smile therapists offering teeth whitening at beauty parlours

Is Invisalign for everyone? Why is it so expensive? Will I get a good result? These are some common Invisalign-related questions I get, be it in the dental surgery or whilst having coffee with friends.

Gone are the days where patients come into the clinic asking for those awful metal steel braces. As Dr Meow mentioned in her previous post on various types of braces treatment in Singapore, Invisalign is all the rave these days.

We live in an aesthetically-driven society and moving with times, orthodontic treatment has certainly evolved. Orthodontists are now able to provide patients with good outcomes using more "invisible" braces.

I'm a firm believer in walking the talk.

  • Undergoing orthodontic treatment later in life than most people (mid 20s) despite the stigma of being an adult adorned with conventional braces.
  • Having all 4 wisdom teeth surgically removed in one sitting under local anaesthesia without sedation.

These are just some examples of how I've put myself out there to experience dental treatments first-hand so I can reassuringly tell my patients with full confidence “I did it too, and it's really quite alright.”
