Infant Dentistry

At Hello Dental, we see infants as young as 2 days old to access their oral motor skills including the necessary reflexes & tongue function as both affects feeding which is a vital aspect at this age. Our goal is to optimize development from infancy by accessing their oral myofunction & develop oral motor skills from birth.

We work alongside Lactation Consultant, Speech Therapist & Bodyworkers to address breastfeeding difficulties, speech or feeding issues.

Tongue Tie

Tongue tie, also known as ankyloglossia, is a condition where the tissue that attaches the tongue to the bottom of the mouth is unusually short or tight. This can restrict the movement of the tongue and cause difficulty with speaking, eating, & breastfeeding.

Not all tongue tie needs to be released. At Hello Dental, we provide laser functional frenectomy when indicated.

We access the tongue function, tone and coordination to ensure release is done functionally (not just a snip but also with exercises) to strengthen tongue tone.

Pacifier &
Drooling

Pacifiers are a common tool used to soothe infants and young children. While they can be helpful in the short term, prolonged pacifier use can lead to dental issues such as malocclusion (misaligned teeth), drooling and problems with speech development.

At Hello Dental, we can help you determine if pacifier use and drooling are impacting your child’s dental health and develop a plan to address any issues that arise.

Thumb Sucking

Thumb sucking is a common habit among infants and young children, and it is a natural way for them to self-soothe and feel comfortable. However, if the habit persists beyond the age of 4 or 5, it can begin to cause problems with the development of the mouth and teeth.

If you are concerned about your child’s thumb sucking habit, there are many way to approach including behavioral therapy and chewing appliance. In Hello Dental, we believe is important to approach the issue with patience and understanding.

Client Testimonials

We Value
your feedback

We were recommended to Dr Gin for a frenotomy procedure for our baby boy. She was very professional and patient in explaining the procedure so that we could make the most informed decision. There was also thorough follow up. Overall we were comforted by her competence and her compassion, would definitely recommend her! 🙂

My daughter (almost 2 months at the time) came here for a tongue release procedure. Can't say enough good things about Dr Gin, We especially love that Dr Gin ALWAYS spoke to my daughter as her own person, never speaking to her through mummy or daddy. This small habit told us that she loved and really knew how to communicate with children We have recommended many friends to Hello Dental, and will return in the future when the need arises for us, even though we stay so far away in Sg Buloh
