GENERAL & PREVENTATIVE DENTISTRY
Healthy teeth and gums for life
At Romford Road Dental Centre, our dental team focuses on preventive dentistry to help you to achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums for life. We want you to be confident that your breath is fresh and your smile looks its best.
The importance of regular dental check-ups
When you visit us for a dental check-up, it gives us the chance to spot any potential problems at an early stage, so we can treat them quickly, often saving you time and expense. Our examination also includes a mouth cancer screening – this condition is on the increase, and early diagnosis makes a huge difference to survival rates.
Helping you to avoid / combat gum disease
Our hygienist can play a key role in helping you to maintain a healthy mouth, and avoiding problems such as decay and gum disease (the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults). During your visit the hygienist will clean your teeth professionally, removing plaque (a constantly-forming layer of sticky bacteria which causes gum disease) and leaving your teeth fresh and clean.
Oral healthcare advice
As well as visiting us regularly, it is important to maintain a good daily oral healthcare routine at home. During your appointments, we will be happy to give you advice about the best way to care for your teeth. This can include guidance on effective brushing techniques and dietary advice to help you avoid decay and keep your teeth looking their best.

It includes the rehabilitation of the teeth and the oral cavity to functional, psychological and aesthetic requirements of the individual patient, including the co-ordination of multi-professional working to achieve these objectives. Restorative dentistry encompasses the dental specialties of Endodontics, Periodontics and Prosthodontics (fixed and removable) and its foundation is based upon the interaction of these specialties in cases requiring complex, multi-faceted care.
Permanent solution for tooth loss
Missing teeth? We can help!
Dental implants provide a realistic, strong and fixed way of replacing missing teeth. They can be used to replace a single tooth or a number of teeth, and can also be used as a much more comfortable and convenient method of keeping dentures in place.
Replace missing teeth with dental implants
Implants are small devices which are, in effect, false tooth roots. Made out of titanium metal, they are placed gently into the jaw bone and left in place until they bond with the bone. This creates a strong and permanent support for replacement teeth, which are specifically shaped and coloured to provide a perfect match to your other teeth.
Why have dental implants?
Dental implants can eliminate gaps and chewing discomfort so that you are able to smile with confidence and eat a complete diet.
For denture wearers, implants can mean the end of embarrassment and frustration caused by a slipping denture. Speak confidently and enjoy your favourite foods again.
Missing teeth can cause your jawbone to shrink resulting in that ‘sucked in’ look. Dental implants can prevent bone loss and help you maintain your facial structure.
An attractive, healthy smile can play an important role in your general health and well-being. It can help you to look and feel your best.

Orthodontic Treatment at Romford Road Dental Centre
Our teeth serve many functions. A smile that is well-aligned is also healthy. Straight teeth are easy to keep clean, and free of harmful plaque that causes decay and gum disease. Well-aligned teeth and jaws provide optimal function. Tooth wear is greatly reduced, and the jaw joints are allowed to function with less stress and greater comfort.
For most people, a spectacular smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics. Nobody can deny that straight teeth are visually appealing. A beautiful smile leads to enhanced self-esteem and is a universally accepted sign of health and beauty. When teeth and bites aren't straight, health, function, and aesthetics are compromised. After your braces come off, you'll definitely feel more self-confident!
Beautifully straight teeth
Having your teeth straightened can be a real confidence booster, and the great news is that these days there are many different options available. At Romford Road Dental Centre, we offer a number of orthodontic systems. These include fixed appliances and removable, near-invisible, methods, such as Invisalign©, Radiance Plus, Invisalign© Teen Master Teen Braces, 6 Month Smiles, and Inman Aligner.
Invisalign© "Invisible Braces" straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
If you are unhappy or self-conscious about your teeth but don’t like the thought of wearing braces for 18 months or longer, then Inman Aligner orthodontic treatment may be the answer for you.(please see our video demonstration)
The revolutionary Inman Aligner can straighten teeth in just 2-3 months. It offers a great solution for patients who are self-conscious about their misaligned teeth, but who don’t want to commit to lengthy treatments.
The appliances are removable, which means you can still eat whatever you like, and you can clean your teeth as normal.

Dentistry (thankfully) is no longer just a case of filling and taking out teeth.
Nowadays many people turn to cosmetic dentistry, or ‘aesthetic dentistry', as a way of improving their appearance.
They do this in the same way they might use cosmetic surgery or even a new hairstyle. The treatments can be used to straighten, lighten, reshape, and repair teeth. Cosmetic treatments include teeth straightening (Orthodontics), veneers, crowns, bridges, tooth-coloured fillings, implants, tooth whitening, or a combination of all or some of these treatments.
At Romford Road Dental Practice we look at the bigger picture and carefully plan and coordinate all available cosmetic options including anti-aging treatments (such as Botox and Dermal Fillers).
So whether you’re getting married, having a special birthday or anniversary, or just want to look healthier and happier, speak to our team about booking in to see our treatment coordinator who, in conjunction with the dentist, will help plan all stages of your treatment.

Wrinkle Relaxing Injections
What is botulinum toxin?
Botulinum toxin is produced by bacteria; It is then highly refined, diluted and used in therapeutic doses as a muscle relaxant but inhibiting the muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles.
How long does treatment take and when can results be noticed?
In most cases, the treatment will take between 10 and 20 minutes. Effects will not be fully visible for up to 14 days. Approximately 10-14 days after the first treatment, the effects can be reviewed with your clinician and any adjustments made as appropriate.
How long do the effects last?
Initially, the Improvement lasts up to 3 months in most patients although results differ from person to person. The relaxing effect fades gradually.
It should be noted that wrinkle relaxing injections cannot be guaranteed to totally inhibit movement as a lot depends on how strong the muscle was in the first place and how deep the lines were.
With repeated treatments, the effect can last longer as the muscles have been inhibited from the movement for a longer period of time and are therefore less strong.
Sunekos is a new, intelligent injectable substance containing a potent cocktail of amino acids and hyaluronic acid (HA). These are vital building blocks of healthy and hydrated skin. Sunekos works by stimulating the fibroblast cells in the skin to encourage it to produce a complete mix of collagen and elastin, restoring the vibrancy, youthful glow and health of the skin.
Sunekos comes in 2 formulations – Sunekos 200 (suitable for less visible wrinkles) and Sunekos 1200 (for more advanced visible signs of ageing). The two formulations can also be used in combination to provide outstanding results. Treatments take place over 3 or 4 sessions roughly 1-2 weeks apart.
Sunekos is very versatile and can be used on the face, neck, décolletage and under the eyes.
Sunekos can effectively treat a wide range of symptoms of ageing which include:
• Loss of skin tone and skin sagging
• Skin ageing
• Severe wrinkles
• Lack of hydration
• Acne scarring
• Dark circles under eyes
• Sun damage
• Fine lines and wrinkles
Sunekos offers the following benefits for the skin:
• Lifting and tightening
• Increased volume and plumpness of the skin
• Improvement in the appearance of deep wrinkles
• Increased deep and surface skin hydration
