Unexpected hyphenation at the end of sentences - Kindle Create (book preview)

Hi,
I'm new to this forum so I apologise if this question has previously been asked.  I am trying to create my first Kindle book by converting a Word doc (.docx) via the Kindle Create programme.  I'm confident that the formatting on the Word document is correct but when I preview the book on Kindle Create, some of the sentences contain hyphenated words which run onto the next line.  I would prefer for this not to happen.  I have tried to find information on this and the consensus seems to be that it's just an Amazon thing and not to worry about it but I don't think it looks great splitting so many words and splitting words that would not normally be hyphenated.  
Does anyone have any experience of this and know a way to fix it?  Thanking you in advance :-)
