That same year, Dr Teo was also awarded the North Carolina-AADR Turner Research award. She’s an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, and an ITI Fellow.

QUIZ: WHY DO YOUR GUMS BLEED?
February 1st, 2018

Gum disease happens when there's too much bacteria in your gums from improper brushing.

Combined with a weakened immune system due to stress, smoking, and lack of sleep, the bone and gum around your teeth start to melt away. As a result, your teeth become loose and shakey, and may eventually fall out.

Gum disease is insidious, and sometimes can be pain-free. I've noticed patients tend to live in denial for a long time, and seek help only when it is TOO LATE. By this time, their teeth will have lost all its surrounding bone, and extraction is the only solution :(

7 STEPS TO A HEALTHY AND ATTRACTIVE SMILE
February 1st, 2018

There's something about a bright, beautiful smile that makes a person really attractive. I know some people like the moody broody look in their partners….. but melancholy only gets you so far.

Imagine waking up to the glums every morning. Ewwww. It would feel like a Monday everyday. 😣

Most people are like me though! I like happy faces. RBFs or RAFs don’t quite cut it; as shown by studies.

I'M A PERIODONTIST, NOT AN ORTHODONTIST!
February 1st, 2018

I think it’s high time I spoke up for my specialty and discipline. I've been mistaken for an Orthodontist wayyy too many times. 🙄

I love my Orthodontist friends, but I need to tell the world that other specialities in Dentistry exist as well!!

Orthodontists are dentists that specialise in braces to align teeth, while we Periodontists specialise in treating gum disease. We're a fairly rare specimen in Singapore, but the numbers are growing.

Will my gums relapse after gum contouring treatment?

Hi tan57580,we can prevent chances of relapse if the dentist ensures that the bone underneath the gums is 3mm below the newly contoured gum margin. If there is too much bone underneath the gums, it will "push" the gums back to its original position, leading to relapse. The dentis...
