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...

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...

Tongue ties are pretty common: basically they are bands of soft tissue which tether the tongue down to the floor of the mouth. They don’t usually cause much of a problem but if t then the baby may have some problems feeding/breastfeeding, or the younger child may have a slight spe...

You are right to be concerned because unfortunately, tooth decay is a very real issue for our children in Singapore today. More than half our preschoolers are victims of tooth decay. Establishing tooth friendly habits right from the start is the key to preventing tooth decay. ...

I agree with your dentist that your son should be using a fluoridated toothpaste to help with your decay prevention efforts. There are specially formulated children's toothpastes with different levels of fluoride depending on age group. A good example is Elgydium. To minimize the risk of swallow...

Tooth decay is a contagious oral bacterial disease. These bacteria produce acids in the presence of sugar and these acids soften the teeth. When cavities appear in the mouth, it is a signal to paediatric dentists that the mouth is in imbalance. The amount of bacteria and the ...

I am sorry to hear that your son injured his tooth in school. There can be many causes for tooth discoloration but from what you have described, your son's tooth has most likely started to turn grey as a result of the trauma from the knock. Trauma to the tooth may cause the ...
