You don’t need to wait until you want implants or orthodontics in Kent, as we can take care of your general dental health, and can help keep your teeth and gums free from disease and decay.

Not Visited a Dentist for a While? Why Not Book a Check-up?

If you haven’t been to the dentist for a while then why not make an appointment for a check-up? Our dentists know that many people feel apprehensive or even fearful about visiting a dentist in Kent, and will work hard to put you at your ease. You can talk to them, or any member of the dental team about your fears, and you will receive a sympathetic response. You won’t receive any treatment at your initial check-up, as it is simply to assess your dental health, and to work out a treatment plan, if required.

A Scale and Polish is a Great Way to Refresh Your Smile

One thing we do recommend is that all our patients visit our hygienist for a scale and polish at regular intervals, and this can be a quite a gentle and non-invasive way to get used to visiting Parrock Street, and it will also leave you with a wonderfully clean and fresh feeling mouth.

Regular hygiene appointments are important for helping to prevent dental diseases, especially gum disease, as all the hardened plaque and tartar will be removed from your teeth, before your teeth are gently polished. It is important to remove tartar as the bacteria in the tartar produce toxins that irritate the gums. Your body will try to fight this irritation through producing antibodies, a reaction that causes inflammation and is the start of gum disease. Regular hygiene appointments, combined with good home care, help ensure this doesn’t happen.
