    Traditional braces at early age

    Hi, My child is in fifth grade. From childhood onwards, she was upset because of the shape of her teeth. All her teeth were misplaced. All her friends in school call her devil face because of those teeth. So my friend suggested me to take her to general dentistry in Brampton( https://www.lakeridgedental.ca/ ). She told they will suggest us to wear braces. Are braces advisable at this small age? Will this braces create trouble while taking? Will this braces cause discomfort for chewing and eating....

    Chronic bad breath

    I've dealt with chronic bad breath for least 10 years. Bad taste in mouth does also occur, but it's not chronic, usually on mornings (most likely caused by the massive bacterial overgrowth on tongue?). Salt gargling, tongue cleaning and few selected mouth washes do relief the symptoms, but not enough. I am pretty sure that all the smell comes from my tongue. However, as I've been cleaning my tongue and salt gargling for about 2 weeks, I've also had sore throat for about 2 weeks as....

    Bad Breath Problems

    Hi! I work at one of the fast-food chain outlets in Oshawa to earn money for med school. I have to deal with hundreds of customers every day. Apparently, I have bad breath and the manager kind of made fun of me in front of my fellow workers. It was so embarrassing. I am so cautious now while I talk to people and it is deeply affecting my performance at work as well. I tried using gum, mouthwashes and other products but none of these seem to help. I also started flossing, but the odor is strong. I....

    Masseter Muscle

    Three years ago I was doing a jaw exercise and the right side of my face got swollen but then it went away but I’ve had asymmetry since that incident. I’ve noticed my masseter muscle contracts when I bite down but not when I move mouth side to side. My chin is not straight and neither is my bite. What can this be?

    Teeth whitening treatment and cosmetic dental services

    Hey! I really want a solution to my problem. I am 20 years old girl. My problem is with my teeth. My teeth are extremely ugly. They are misaligned and yellowish. I don't know what to do. I have done bleaching for many times. But a tremendous change was not seen. Now I hate to go outside. Everyone stares at my teeth when I speak. It hurts me a lot. My friends always bully me. I told my problem to my parents. Actually, they were planning to tell me this. My mom discussed with the family doctor....

    Little White Bumps Inside my Mouth

    I've had braces for a year now. I went for an ortho check-up last week & the next day I got little white bumps on my mouth. The doctor didn't do much to my braces. He looked around my mouth & the dental assistant replaced a couple of tie backs. At the beginning it was only a few white spots & I thought it was maybe because my teeth moved. But there was barely any movement. Nonetheless, I've been putting dental wax everyday on the braces that rubs against the white bumps just....
