Keeping your child's smile healthy for life

You can keep your child's teeth healthy by accommodating the following dentist recommendations.

Key takeaways:

- Use fluoride toothpaste and ensure your child drinks fluoridated tap water. Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel reducing the risk of cavities forming.

- Introduce flossing to your child's dental care routine as soon as they have two teeth that touch.

- Regular checkups at the dentist can be scheduled as soon as their first tooth comes through, ensuring any problems are spotted early and your child's teeth remain healthy for life.

"As research shows, healthy teeth can lead to healthy lives."

Are Orthodontic Issues Caused by Lifestyle Factors or Genetics?

You might be surprised to learn that inheritance plays an equal role alongside lifestyle habits when determining whether or not your teeth will require braces. Let's take a look at some of the main variables.

- Extended periods of thumb sucking as a child can affect your teeth.

- Brushing and flossing will keep your gums and teeth healthy so you can qualify for braces.

- Visiting your dentist regularly will catch any dental problems early so you can get correct treatment – including braces.

"Other than inheriting bad mouth structure or crowded teeth from your parents, there are other things that aren’t specifically related to genes that could affect your need for braces."

Some Reasons Why Your Jaw May Be Hurting

Jaw pain or discomfort can be caused by many different reasons, from common colds to more serious conditions.

Key takeaways:

- Locked jaws or clicking noises may be symptoms of TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder).

- Infected teeth cavities can spread to bone tissue and cause jaw pain.

- Allergies, congestion, and sinus infections may also cause discomfort along the jaw.

If your jaw pain or discomfort doesn't go away in a few hours, make an appointment with your dentist to find out the cause.

Can Dental Implants Be Fitted in Just One Day?

Yes they can although it is only a temporary solution! Using 3D CT scanning a dentist can now make a temporary crown which can be fitted on the same day as the dental implant post.

The new tooth (or teeth) looks and functions like the real thing. The crown will be replaced several months later when the implant fuses with the jawbone. Same-day implants work extremely well and are:

-  Natural-looking

- Securely fixed

- Fully functional


Fitting dental implants “can take months” but “same-day” implants are an excellent temporary solution and more information can be found at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/can-dental-implants-be-done-in-one-day/.

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!
