  • 3 Benefits of Scaling You Didn't Know About

    No matter how well you take care of your teeth, plaque and tartar buildup are inevitable for everyone. Bacteria colonies form in our mouths every time we eat or drink, and while brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash are an effective strategy for getting rid of most of these particles, some always...

  • Is water-flossing as effective as regular flossing?

    The water irrigation system is a great way to replace flossing. Generally speaking, airflosser (Sonicare) and most water irrigation system can replace about 80-90% effectiveness as the good old flossing, providing you are flossing correctly with your techniques. Since flossing is quite technique sensitive, and not everyone is flossing the right way, airflosser is a great way to help you improve your daily oral care if using it consistently....just like flossing. However, I still recommend my clients to try flossing once a while even you are using an airflosser daily. READ MORE

  • What if only one tooth is crooked?

    It's very hard for me to judge without looking at your current occlusion. Also even with a single tooth malocclusion, it really have to depends on the degrees of rotation, the location of the tooth and also which tooth it is?? Therefore, I cannot fully answer your question. I highly recommend you to ask your dentist for an assessment to give you a better advice. Also braces is not the only option for correcting mal-alignment anymore. Discuss with your dentist if clear aligners, removable appliances or braces will be the most suitable option for you. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • What can I eat or avoid eating to reduce plaque?

    I understand it can be quite frustrating for you when you are trying to do everything you can, but still getting unsatisfactory results. The amount of plaque accumulation can depends on various factors. Including the mucous consistency of your saliva, the pH balance in your mouth, your personal habit (smoker or not?), and of course, diet and oral hygiene habits. So try to make sure you keep yourself always hydrated, and consider always rinse out your mouth after a meal or snack. Maybe consider getting an air-flosser or water irrigation system to help with your flossing routine, especially if you have any sort of orthodontic fixed retainers in the back of your teeth. I hope this helps. Good luck. READ MORE

  • What is a dry socket?

    Hello, sorry to hear about your friend as a dry socket can be very painful and uncomfortable. A dry socket is a break down of the blood clot during the healing process. When the blood clot is dissolved or dislodged prematurely, the exposed bone and nerve ending can be irritated by the surrounding environment. It is a self resolvable process, however, it can be quit painful in the meantime. Usually about 10-14 days. If it gets really bad, please go to your dentist for medical dressing to place in the socket till the area is healed. Also OTC Advil or Tylenol as needed for the discomfort. Hope this helps. Good luck. READ MORE

  • I can't fix my teeth sensitivity. What do I do?

    Sorry to hear about your issues. As tooth sensitivity can be really uncomfortable and can starts to affect your day to day life. What to eat, what to avoid. However, without a more detailed examination, it is hard for me to judge what will be the cause of your sensitivity. Is there a cavity, or just recession and generalized sensitivity. Is there any abrasion/abfrection involved. As the appropriate treatment and recommended will be different depending on your clinical condition. Please contact your dentist again to rule out other potential causes of sensitivity and go from there. Thanks READ MORE

  • Bloody painful gums, what should I do?

    When is the last time you have a proper hygiene/cleaning appointment done? Healthy tissue should not bleed. Such as the palm of your hands. It will be quite concerning if you wash your hands and your hands start to bleed right? So please go visit your dentist at your nearest convenience. Bleeding gum is usually an indication of inflammation. Do not stop flossing because of the gum bleeds, it usually gets better once the tartar or the source of the issues are taking care of. But please go see your dentist as most inflammation of the gum is treatable. However, if left untreated, your surrounding bony structure can also be affect and at that point (periodontitis), it will be an irreversible process. Good luck. READ MORE

What do you attribute your success to?

  • I will not be where I am today without the unconditional support and love of my mother.  I was raised by a single parent, my mom.  She was a hard working woman with an incredible heart.  Ever since I was a kid, I have always looked up to her about how hard she worked in order to support the family.  I have always wantede to make her proud and be like her someday.  

    So my dream did not come from nowhere, as my mom is a dentist herself!
