How Can Dental Implants Improve Your Smile?

Not only can missing teeth impact the ways in which we chew food, but they are often paired with psychological issues such as low self-esteem and confidence problems. Thankfully, there are now ways to address missing teeth with the help of modern dental implants.

These artificial teeth will match your existing teeth, and they can last a lifetime if cared for properly. This is due to the fact that implants are inserted directly into the bone of the jaw; providing impressive levels of stability and support.

Patients will therefore not have to be concerned about eating specific foods. While these benefits are indeed impressive, what are some other reasons why implants can represent the ideal solution to restore your smile?

- They can be used to replace more than one tooth.

- Implants will replace an entire tooth (as opposed to caps or bridges).

- Implants help to provide support to nearby natural teeth.

In conclusion, modern implants host a number of amazing benefits if you are missing teeth. Of course, it is always wise to choose an excellent dentist to achieve noteworthy results.

Can a Root Canal Help Me Save My Natural Teeth?

A root canal is a dental procedure to remove dead tissue within one or more teeth. The ultimate goal is to eliminate any possible infections and to prevent future decay and infections.

Your dentist might recommend root canal therapy if your teeth have been damaged in the past or in the event that the root itself has died (signaled by discolouration). However, will a root canal be able to save the tooth in question?

Technology has come a long way since these procedures were first introduced. Not only is a root canal relatively painless, but the modern methods employed by your dentist are often preferable when compared to an extraction.

Here are three benefits:

- Local anaesthetic will prevent any pain during the treatment.

- Most procedures can be completed within a single visit.

- If root canal therapy is not successful in saving your tooth, you may be a good candidate for a dental implant -- which is a very close replica of your tooth.

See a dentist regularly to prevent decay and infections. If you experience tooth pain, see your dentist immediately. A root canal procedure will put an end to your pain and preserve your tooth.

Andover Smile Centre provides high quality specialised and general dental treatment at affordable rates. We pride ourselves in putting the patient first by providing them with the best care, by the best dentists, using the best materials and equipment offering very reasonable rates.

Why a Healthy Mouth Equates to a Healthy Body

We all wish to possess a white set of teeth and healthy gums. However, the majority of individuals are unaware of the inextricable connection between oral hygiene and an overall healthy lifestyle.

Numerous studies have illustrated that there is direct correlation between the state of our mouths and the conditions of our bodies. You might be shocked to learn that chronic issues such as heart disease and diabetes have a tentative link to oral hygiene.

This is why it is extremely important to embrace the appropriate habits as well as to visit the dentist on a regular basis. What have leading researchers uncovered in recent years?

- Poor oral hygiene and periodontitis have been associated with higher rates of heart disease.

- A lack of saliva can lead to increased levels of bacteria; potentially contributing to chronic disease and infections.

- Oral health problems could be indicative of more severe health concerns like diabetes and HIV infection.

The condition of your mouth is important if you wish to lead a healthy lifestyle. That’s why it is critical to see a dentist every six months for an exam and professional teeth chealning.

Your Top Gum-Friendly Oral Care Tips

While healthy teeth are essential if we hope to avoid cavities, many individuals tend to overlook the state of their gums until a physical problem occurs. Proper oral hygiene will only be present if the gums are given the appropriate amount of attention.

Should they be ignored, conditions such as periodontitis (gum disease) can often result. This is why it is important to appreciate some of the top recommendations in regards to gum care.

The good news is that the methods mentioned below can be easily implemented into your daily routine. What does the average dentist have to say and how can these tips help to prevent further issues?

- Choosing a toothpaste that contains fluoride will promote gum health while strengthening your tooth enamel.

- Flossing on a daily basis helps to remove particulate matter between the teeth and the gums.

- Using mouthwash has been a proven method to decrease incidences of gum disease and to strengthen your teeth.

Issues such as periodontitis are easy to address if you incorporate the suggestions mentioned above into your daily oral hygiene routine. Also, get a professional teeth cleaning every six months.

Antibiotics Can Kill The 'Good Bacteria' Needed for Good Oral Health

New research shows that bacteria within our bodies are effective in helping kill oral infections. The research notes antibiotics can actually kill off these ‘beneficial’ bacteria.

Key takeaways:

- Our teeth and gums benefit from the body’s “beneficial” bacteria which fight infections and inflammation.

- Overuse of antibiotics can harm these beneficial bacteria, which can set the stage for infections.

- Maintaining regular dentist visits is important since good oral health is linked to overall health.

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!
