kennett road dental practice



As a practice we are dedicated to providing good oral health for our patients and have adopted a preventative approach to dentistry. Our hygienist works alongside our dentists to give you and your family comprehensive preventative dental care.

Our friendly hygienist, Krystyna, is highly qualified and very experienced. As well as professionally cleaning your teeth she will give you advice on your diet and how to keep your teeth free of plaque, decay and gum disease. Periodontal or gum disease has been linked with conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimers Disease.

Clinical studies have proven that regular scaling and polishing by a hygienist will help keep your teeth and gums healthy, your smile whiter and your breath fresher. Scaling eliminates the hard tartar, which cannot be removed by brushing alone, while polishing tackles the stains that build-up from daily activities such as drinking coffee, tea and red wine, or smoking.

Fissure Sealants

Deep pits and grooves can be found on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Such pits and grooves are termed ‘fissures’ and are usually so narrow that toothbrush bristles and streams of water are not able to clean them effectively. Fissure sealants can be applied to the teeth to protect these areas.

Fissure sealants are a form of flowable white filling material used by dentists to seal off pits and fissures from the oral environment. Sealing the tooth surface protects fissures from bacteria and foods like sugar and starches, to prevent decay from starting deep within the fissures.
