Do all wisdom teeth get extracted?

Wisdom teeth emerge in late adolescence or later in life. It is well documented that wisdom teeth can be difficult to remove, however, you may be surprised to learn that not everyone needs them removing.

Key takeaways:

- If wisdom teeth emerge and cause no problems, they may not need to be removed.

- When wisdom teeth become impacted, causing pain, bleeding and infection, they may need to be extracted.

- Always see your dentist regularly to discuss any complications when they arise.

"Many people still have wisdom teeth even though they’re not needed."

Do You Have a Dead Tooth?

People can suffer from a 'dead tooth' until it is too late. A tooth is declared dead when all blood vessels around it are cut off and can no longer supply blood.

Key takeaways:

- You might have a 'dead tooth,' if you have bad odour, metallic tastes, discolouration, swelling, redness, pimples on gums and headaches.

-  Causes are an injury (like a fall) or a severely decayed tooth.

- Your dentist will do an x-ray to diagnose and root canal therapy or extraction to treat.

Regularly clean your teeth and see the dentist for checkups to prevent these complications.

Understanding the different types of dental implants

Nowadays, people with missing teeth have a wider variety of options for dental implants. Your dentist should advise you on which of these options is best for you.

Key takeaways:

- Endosteal implants are the most common and are for people with an adequate amount of jawbone.

- Mini-dental implants are for people with a weak or inadequate amount of jawbone and are more budget-friendly.

- Implant-supported dentures are best if you lack all your natural teeth.

- Subperiosteal implants include a frame and post being inserted, into patients with a weak jawbone.

Today’s dental implants are beautiful natural-looking replacement teeth that restore your smile. Dental implants will last a very long time if you practice good oral hygiene.

Effective teeth brushing tips

  • Most people brush their teeth twice a day as recommended by dentists, but may not be cleaning their teeth as effectively as they could.

Key takeaways:

- Brush your upper and lower teeth for 1 minute each with a soft-bristled toothbrush.

- Use medium pressure to avoid any damage to your enamel.

- Use a fluoride toothpaste to reduce the risk of cavities and tooth decay.

- Ask your dentist for a demonstration at your next checkup to ensure you perfect your technique

Dr. Aarti Kohli Jain (Principal Dentist)

Hi, Im Aarti Kohli Jain and I moved up to Andover Smile Centre because of their particular approach to dentistry is BEAUTIFULLY SIMPLE… minimal treatment…beautiful smiles.

You know how some people are self-conscious and unhappy about the look of their smile and suffer with low self-esteem Which means that you don’t feel very confident in your social life and at work. Well, what I can do is improve your smile with new minimal dentistry techniques and a very gentle touch, which means that your teeth will look fantastic and be healthy and long lasting, so you can be more confident when you meet new people.

I am very interested in cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics and facial aesthetics and this allows me to help people who are conscious and unhappy about various aspects of their smile, teeth and gums to achieve optimal health, function and aesthetics.

The satisfaction I receive as a dentist, knowing I am helping people improve their smiles and lead happier, healthier lives with increased self-esteem is hugely gratifying.

I keep abreast with the latest techniques and innovations in my field which helps me provide unparalleled patient care and the highest quality dentistry available today. I have a very gentle and caring approach towards my patients especially the nervous ones and try my best to allay their anxieties and phobias and treat them in a relaxed and comfortable environment.

I graduated in India in 2002 and since then have worked in both hospital and private dental settings. I completed my year-long vocational training at Blackbrook Dental Practice, Taunton and subsequently worked in private dental practices in the Hampshire area (Oasis Dental Care, Andover; Marshall's Dental Practice and Linden Dental Centre in Old Basing, Basingstoke).

I enjoy spending time with my family especially my daughter Aanya. I love adventure sports and travelling. My next personal goal is to learn to swim so I can undertake scuba diving training with my husband. Some people can often spell my name wrong Arty, Arti or Artie - I don’t mind but really it’s Aarti!
