First of all, with pericoronitis, you are going to experience pain and swelling. What makes it worse is that you may accidentally bite on the swollen soft tissue, further traumatising the gum. You are expected to have difficulty in eating for that few days. Untreated pericoronitis ...

The history and photo suggests a wisdom tooth which lacks sufficient space to erupt. This is a frequent cause of gum swelling at the back. When there is insufficient space for the wisdom tooth to erupt, there is typically gum that covers part of it. This condition is called pe...

I am sorry that you are suffering from malocclusion. Unfortunately, insurance rarely covers orthodontic treatment as it is usually considered as an elective procedure. Cases that are deemed medically necessary include: cleft lip, difficulty in eating due to malocclusion such a...

Sometimes after braces removal, patients may notice that their tooth surfaces look slightly different. These discolorations are usually either a result of residual cement left on the tooth after braces removal or decalcification/decay. As the cement used to attach the braces on t...

A good friend of mine and periodontist (specialist in gum treatment), Dr Marlene Teo, wrote this excellent article on 5 ways to fix a gummy smile. Here's the link to the article - https://www.doctorxdentist.com/5-ways-fix-gummy-smile/ The treatment options would depend on the dia...

NO treatment is necessary for a true confirmed diagnosis of Epstein pearls/gingival cysts . These are harmless overgrowths of the cells that are involved in tooth formation. These usually disappear without any treatment within 6 months. Your baby should be assessed to see if ...

I have had a good look at the photograph. Yes you are correct. These are indeed 'mamelons' which are completely normal and are of no clinical significance at all. Mamelons are actually 3 round protuberances which are a result of how a tooth germ cells forms enamel. Typically we...
