Top Questions


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!

My baby is only 3 months old but I see that she has a little tooth bud emerging. Should I start now or is it too early?

My baby is a little over 1 year old now. I was wondering when is the appropriate time to get my baby to brush her teeth with toothpaste?

My boy is 2.5 yo. He still doesn’t know how to gargle, and the dentist did advise that there are signs of tooth decay. Not sure if it is ok for my child to use children toothpaste with fluoride content? What is the consequence if a child swallows toothpaste with fluoride?

My daughter has decay in her baby tooth now. I was wondering if this will affect her adult teeth after it falls off?

My child has cavities in his teeth and my dentist advised me to fix it. Is it really necessary since they are going to fall out?

My friends told me to be careful about baby bottle decay. I read a lot online but thought it would be better to ask a dentist direct. Could you please explain to me what is it and how can I prevent it?

I read that fluoride is beneficial to my baby’s oral health. What is it and why is it good? What is the right amount that my baby should be getting?

Would you be able to advise me on the order it erupts? I would like to know so that I know where to check.

I am very worried that my baby’s teeth will decay. What can I do to prevent decay?

Hi, just wondering when is a good time for children to get braces done for teeth alignment? My daughter is 10, and she is regularly seen by the school dentist every year. Her adult teeth has started to grow out. Thank you!

My 6 year old has an underbite. What are the early treatments I can consider for her?
My 6 year old has baby teeth that didn't drop. This has caused her 2 adult front teeth to grow out crooked. What measures should I take to address this? Are there any precautionary measures I should take for her future adult teeth?
