Hi there! The only time one may consider not to fill a cavity is when the tooth is rendered poor or hopeless meaning that it's not worth saving. So with that rule, we should always try to arrest the decay activity of any cavities. Arresting the decay activity could be having fill...

Hi there, It really depends on how bad the decay is. If it is fairly superficial, the dentist can fix it and retard the decay activity thus salvaging the tooth without any impact on her adult tooth that will be replacing it in the future. However, if there is a very deep deca...

Hi there! I can truly empathize with this struggle, being a father of 2 toddlers. I normally do advise parents that inculcating the habit of brushing starts as early as when they are a newborn. Introducing them a towel or a gauze to clean the bony ridges daily even before the ...

Hi, Your daughter looks like she has severe gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) so it would be most advisable for her to go visit a dentist who is experienced in seeing children. Hope this helps.

As with most orthodontic treatment, there is no age limit for Invisalign treatment. In fact, Invisalign has developed new features that work great on growing children to help to correct jaw size discrepancies in conjunction with correcting the overall alignment of teeth. Ulti...
29 May 2018
Hi Xue An, Thank you for your question. From what it seems based on your description at least, I would think that there is no urgent need to extract the shaky tooth at this moment, as it is the baby tooth that is exfoliating naturally. It should not hinder the eruption of the adu...

Hi Jayden Please take note that the centre of your lower jaw is shifted slightly to the right. This is caused by a cross-bite that has developed on the RHS. Usually the upper teeth will be covering the outer sides of the lower teeth, but in your case, the upper teeth are 't...
13 Sep 2018
It sounds like you have some concerns about your daughter’s upper tooth alignment which you suspect is due to a narrowed upper jaw (palate). Picking up this dental issue at her age is excellent because she is still growing. Expanding the palate may be a feasible option to m...
