How Sedation Makes A Dentist's Visit Easier

Your dentist will try to make a visit as pain- and stress-free as possible and will offer various types and levels of sedation when applying treatments to your teeth. These are:

- Nitrous oxide – a gas used for mild sedation

- Oral sedative pill – also for mild sedation

- Intravenous sedation for moderate sedation

- General anaesthesia for heavy sedation

- Analgesia for heavy sedation

"Dental sedation relieves anxiety and fear for the most nervous patients. This removes a big reason why people avoid the dentist and allow them to comfortably go through the entire procedure."

Three Reasons To Cut Down On Alcohol Consumption

Enjoying a drink every now and then is something many people like to do. If this has become a habit, you may want to consider cutting down on it for the sake of your dental health.

Key takeaways:

- Alcohol is an acidic substance that can cause enamel erosion.

- Alcohol abuse is one of the main causes of oral cancers.

- Drinkers have a higher risk of developing cavities, gum disease, and dry mouth.

Now is a good time to let your dentist take a look at the state of your teeth and gums and get advice on how to best care for them.

Treatment for Keto Breath

Although extremely popular, the Keto diet has a major drawback in that it can cause bad breath. Keto breath (as it has been dubbed) is caused by the low-carb diet and results in an acetone- or ammonia-like odour.

Fortunately, the condition is treatable if not preventable. A top dentist recommends:

- Stimulate production of saliva with gum and sweets containing xylitol (a natural alcohol found in plants)

- Drink plenty of water

- Snack on herbs like parsley, cinnamon and clove

Brushing teeth “at least twice a day, flossing and using mouthwash” is also very important in combating Keto breath and further advice can be found at https://www.popsugar.com/fitness/Why-Does-Keto-Diet-Give-You-Bad-Breath-45048410

 

Avoid Summertime Cavities with These Fruity Delights

Eliminating sugar from a child's diet will help to avoid cavities and to cut down on visits to the local dentist. Parents have a variety of unique options to choose from and kids will love how they taste.

- Crunchy vegetables such as green peppers and cucumbers will naturally "scrub" the teeth.

- Encourage your children to create their own unique forms of fruit salad.

- Frozen sorbet is a great way to keep cool while enjoying a tasty dessert.

Need to Know: Yearly Teeth Cleaning

Although it may be tempting to miss a regular check-up or annual clean, it doesn't pay to do this.

Key points:

- Gum disease, a major cause of tooth loss, can occur when oral care is inadequate.

- Professional cleaning removes the plaque that can lead to gum disease and cavities in those hard to reach areas.

- Regular cleaning helps remove stains from the surfaces of teeth.

Skipping a cleaning is not advisable as poor oral care often results in more expensive treatments over time.

"Your dentist plays a crucial role in keeping your smile healthy and disease-free..."

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!
