My son is 5 years old. I discovered today that he has a growing tooth at the front upper gums, which I assume is abnormal because it is not aligned. I also requested for the dentist to remove the black tooth as in the photo, but he told me that the tooth shouldn't be removed because of his young age. Why is that so, and what should I do next for my child?
My child has lateral misalignment of dental arches. She is 8, and her top 4 adult tooth seems crowded. I heard of a procedure to 'expand' the jaw line. How effective and safe is the procedure? Can you advice on the range of costs please?
Hi I would like to find a kids/toddler dental clinic for my 3 year old girl for an overall dental check up. I would prefer a clinic that specializes in kids dentistry. What are some things that I should look out for?
Hi, I suspect that my child who is 1 year old has tongue tie or lip tie. He has always been more fussy and colicky. Now that he is on solids, I find that he hardly opens his mouth much to consume his food. I can't really lift up his upper lips to check his gums as well. How do I know if my 1 year old child has a tongue tie or lip tie, and what are the treatment options for this condition?
My son is 3 years old and he hates brushing his teeth. Recent dental check in his childcare revealed that he is free from decay but will need more brushing. He has slightly yellowish teeth and I brush it 1-2 times a day. Problem is that he hates brushing and it’s usually a quickie. He also has bad breath sometimes. Help!
