It was a lovely experience coming back to my appointments with Dr Sylvia Tan.

She as well as the nurses there were super patient with me and had always been welcoming. Definitely a wonderful experience :)

I come here for braces treatment, and get along very well with Dr Sylvia. She understands me, as a person and not just my teeth. Would like to spend more time having my dental hygiene monitored/ cleaned and talking to her during follow up.

This Is What To Expect During Your Braces Journey, According To An Orthodontist

This post was written in conjunction with Dr Shiming.

Wearing braces can be rather daunting due to the amount of commitment required and time involved. The average treatment can range from 12 to 36 months (this varies due to the complexity of each case).

11 Things You Wish You Knew Before Invisalign

The consent forms have been signed, your scans are done and the money’s been paid. Your super-organised smart-phone gently reminds you that this day next week, your orthodontist will finally be fitting your Invisalign aligners. A sudden panic drains you.

Yes, you've heard all the horror stories from friends – no snacking, no selfies, no social life! You ask yourself, what have I signed up for?!!

Invisalign: 6 Questions You Were Too Afraid To Ask An Orthodontist!

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.

Dear Mee Soto; There are normally two phases to treat children with crowded teeth. The first phase is what we call the 'interceptive' phase where children are seen as young as 8-9 years old to determine if an expander is needed to expand the jaws and encourage teeth to erupt in a better position. ...

Dear Xin Ying; These are my instructions to my patients when I fit their clear retainers for them: - Rinse them with cold water every time you take them out of the mouth, if you wear them during the day time, you have to clean them after every meal too - Use a medium toothb...

Dear Sammy, Thank you for your query. It depends on what you mean by improvement of the nasio-labial lines. If the nasio-labial line is deepened because there is lack of support from your smile and your teeth are collapsed inwards, then braces may help improve these lines. Braces can be used to s...

Dear Samm; Flared teeth can mean two things: 1. Teeth are flared out because the position of each individual teeth are protruding forwards. In this case, orthodontic treatment will be able to correct the position of the protruding teeth by bringing them backwards. There must b...

Majority of patients will feel some sort of discomfort during the first few days of Invisalign treatment. Thereafter, the 'pain' will tend to subside before the next set of aligners. I wouldn't be completely surprised if you do not feel any discomfort. First and foremost, some p...

Dear Lynne; You have asked a very interesting question and I am afraid the answer is yes and no! I will try to explain it as best I can. Braces CAN change profiles: only when the orthodontists and the patient plan to get it changed from the START of the treatment. A good examp...

Dear Cherie; May I know how old your little girl is? You are absolutely right. In most cases, the adult teeth will cause the milk teeth to be mobile and subsequently lost, making space for the adult teeth. In this photo, it looks like the two side adult teeth are erupted but t...

Dear Amdrph, It sounds like you may have some temperomandibular joint disorders, and it is best to get it checked by a dentist. Jaws are meant to open straight down (like a door hinge) and not diagonally, unless you have jaws that are not symmetrical. The clicking sound m...

Dear Faith, It is better to get your braces done first before your crown. This is because the tooth and gum position will move and it may affect the final crown work. The crown surface may also be damaged during braces work (risk is small) which means that you may need a new crow...

Dear Margaret; It is very sad for the patient (and the dentist) when first molar teeth have to be extracted. These teeth are extremely important to ensure a proper bite when the child is older. However there are certain times when extraction is better than keeping the tooth. ...

Dear Bladers, if the other half of the decayed tooth is still in the gums it is better to get it extracted. Permanent teeth can sometimes improve its position on its own providing there are no blockages. The best thing is to get an xray done to check that there are no blockage...
