Bone grafting is needed when there is a defect in the bone which occurs after long term tooth loss or traumatic tooth loss. Bone grafts prepare the jaw bone to accept dental implants or enhance the support around failing teeth. The procedure may be performed after the extraction of infected teeth in order to preserve the site for future implant placement. There are also times that bone is grafted to offer improved support for dentures.Read More

It is a myth that children’s teeth are not important as they will fall out anyway. The early introduction of dentistry to young children is an important primer for the child; how he/she perceives and responds to dentists early will influence them into adulthood.
Maintaining our teeth is a lifelong commitment we should instil in children early in life. When children are equipped with proper life skills and educated on making the right dietary choices, we can be certain they will enjoy eating, smiling and maintain good oral health throughout their lives.Read More
The outer surface of our teeth (tooth enamel) is the hardest substance in the human body, even stronger than our bones. However, due to wear and tear and/or accidents, your tooth can chip, crack (fracture) or even break.
When this happens, there can be no pain, or possibly pain when chewing, or when your tooth is exposed to very high or very low temperatures. Extensive cracks can lead to infection of the tooth’s pulp tissue, which can spread to the bone and gum surrounding the tooth. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential if you want to save your teeth. A cracked tooth that is not treated could be further damaged or become infected, possibly causing you to lose the tooth.
From tiny cracks that only affect the outer enamel to a root fracture, the treatment and outcome for your tooth depends on the type, location and extent of the crack. Depending on your condition, our dental specialists will be able to customize a solution to suit your needs. Click on the below to find out more:

Fluoride, which helps in the prevention of dental caries, has been added to Singapore’s water supply since 1957.
