Checkups & Cleanings
Taking care of your teeth requires regular maintenance. You need a dentist for your whole family that will take care of your dental health with precision, expertise, and experience.
We at Novel Dental are a family dental clinic in Gravesend, Kent who care about your dental health and your wellness. We believe that good dental health is a significant aspect of your well-being.
Our dental checkups and cleanings
Regular dental checkups and cleanings will keep your teeth sparkling and your mouth feeling fresh. During a cleaning, we will clean and polish your teeth. We will remove plaque and tartar build-up found in hard-to-reach areas like below the gum line.
We also check for cavities, gum disease, and oral health concerns. We may be taking digital X-rays of your mouth to better examine your oral health. With every check-up and oral exam, we conduct oral cancer screenings. We aim to detect any abnormal tissue growth in your mouth early for preventive care.

A family dental clinic accepting new patients
Novel Dental cares about your child’s overall wellbeing. We understand how their oral health plays a role. We can provide a fun and friendly dentistry that can help your child become a lifelong star at oral hygiene.
Children's Dental Care
Teaching kids the benefits of good oral hygiene starts early. It continues beyond their first dental visit. Guide your child in this process and encourage good dental habits.
A dentist for kids needs to be patient, fun, and able to communicate on a child’s level. This dentist must be able to explain the different procedures and help them be a participant in their own oral health. A friendly dentist can do all these things and more.
Dental Services for Kids
As a family dentistry in Gravesend, Novel Dental can take care of your kids’ teeth. Our services include checkups, cleanings, prevention and gum care, white teeth fillings, and orthodontics. We also offer sport guards for active kids.
Tooth decay is the most prevalent form of infectious disease among children, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). Prevention and care should start as early as their first birthday – this includes visiting the dentist. A family dentist can help you start your child on a good daily regimen for dental health. They can offer tips and advice for encouraging good oral hygiene and can spot problems and treat them before they become big issues. Tooth decay can lead to oral health problems down the road if left untreated. It’s important to regularly see a kid’s dentist who can circumvent these troubles.
Orthodontics like braces and Invisalign® can straighten any crooked smile. This helps your self-confidence, but it also can be imperative for your dental health. Straight teeth look nice, but they’re also a healthy choice.
Straight teeth look nice, but they’re also a healthy choice. Aligned teeth are far easier to clean, which can prevent decay, tooth loss, and gum disease. Crooked teeth, on the other hand, are hard to clean and may wear unevenly, causing jaw or tooth discomfort. This may develop into further chronic head or neck pain.
Orthodontics like braces, invisible braces, and Invisalign® straighten teeth by applied pressure – either with wires and brackets attached to the teeth, or with a series of trays (called aligners) that are moulded to fit the teeth and subtly shift them over time. Orthodontics, no matter the type, usually take at least a year to straighten teeth, but this can extend to 2 or 3 years for extremely crooked smiles.
When you have a tooth that is infected or badly decayed, it’s important to fix it right a way. Novel Dental Gravesend can help you with a safe root canal procedure that will fix the problem, stop the pain, and get your oral health back to normal.
Root canals are a necessary procedure when a tooth has decayed to the point where the nerve is infected or the pulp (a soft area located in the center of the tooth) is damaged. Without treatment, the pulp or nerve tissue will break down, which will cause bacteria to build up in the pulp chamber. These bacteria can cause infection, an abscess, swelling, or even bone loss at the tooth’s root tip.
When you have a tooth that is broken or decayed, you want the pain to stop. If it cannot be repaired, a tooth extraction may be required. Novel Dental Gravesend can fix the problem, stop the pain, and get your oral health back to normal by removing the damaged tooth.
A tooth extraction is when the tooth is removed from the socket in the bone. You may need a tooth extraction if:
the tooth is infected.
the tooth is badly decayed or damaged from trauma beyond repair.
if your mouth is overcrowded, which prevents your teeth from properly aligning.
For a tooth extraction, the dentist will provide you sedation so you don’t feel any pain. After the tooth is removed, a blood clot will form in the socket, which will be dressed with gauze to help stop the bleeding.
The wisdom teeth come in after permanent, adult teeth have grown in your mouth. The average age they appear is 20 years old and they are the teeth in the mouth found in the back corners. Some people may never have problems with their wisdom teeth. For others, they may need to be removed as a preventative measure.
Getting your wisdom teeth taken out is often more complicated than a normal tooth extraction. This is because it is usually a preventative measure to circumvent problems with these teeth growing in at a wrong angle, overcrowding if the mouth doesn’t have enough room, and to ensure that the teeth don’t become impacted. Dentists ensure your wisdom teeth extraction was a smooth procedure.
If our dentist must remove more than one wisdom tooth at a time, you’ll most likely receive regular freezing. Teeth extractions are outpatient procedures so you’ll go home the same day of surgery. However, you’ll be expected to rest for the remainder of the day. You’ll also have gauze covering the extraction sites which will need to refresh every few hours.
If you find yourself suffering from daily jaw pain or headaches because you clench your teeth at night, or your teeth are being worn down due to grinding, you might need a night guard from Outdoor Dental. We also offer sports mouth guards for adults or children involved in athletic activities.
Sports guards are worn over the teeth to protect them when engaging in sports or other endeavours that might result in injury to the face or head. These mouthguards are an extremely important piece of any sport uniform where there is danger of injury to the mouth – football, soccer, basketball, hockey, gymnastics, skateboarding, and biking, to name a few.
Mouthguards are also used as dental night guards for problems like teeth grinding, TMD, and clenching. In these cases, mouthguards will provide protection against wear and tear on the teeth.
We can help protect you or your children’s teeth and mouth with custom-fit sports mouthguards and night guards for clenching, teeth grinding, or TMD.
We make an impression of your teeth to create your custom mouth guard. These are extremely comfortable, provide an excellent fit, and allow for breathing and speaking.
