          • I am most fortunate to have Rock Dental Practice as my surgery, since the first day I walked into their practice over three years ago, I have received nothing less than a very warm and courteous reception from all staff.

          • Excellent. Needed emergency treatment after breaking a tooth/filling. Could not get in at NHS emergency surgeries.
            Staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. A very good service, though it comes at a price.

          • I visited recently to have my wisdom teeth removed, the procedure was quick and comfortable. The practice is extremely well presented and all of the team are very friendly.
            Thank you to Dr Nadra and the team.

          • Another excellent experience. Dr Nandra, Dawn and the team are always friendly and professional and make a potentially nerve wracking experience, for the anxious-patient like me, relaxed and (almost!) enjoyable. I can't recommend Rock House highly enough. Thanks again for your care and kindness guys.

          • Excellent!. Recently attended the practice with my mother in law who is extremely nervous. From the moment we stepped into the practice we were made very welcome. The staff were all very courteous and the level of care received by Dr Anoup Nandra was exceptional. He addressed her needs with great attention in a very calming manner.

          • Best dental surgery I have used so far, from the approachable staff behind the desk to the highly skilled dentist Dr Nandra and his team. Anyone looking for a lifelong and easy dentist to go too, I highly recommend Rock House Dental. Thank you Guys 'see you in 6 months'. :)

            Rosie Guru 11/25/2018
          • Excellent first visit to the Rock Dental Practice. All the staff are friendly and professional. Particularly liked the 'real time' discussion about the Xray results - shown on a screen in the surgery a few minutes after they were taken. Can't get much better than that for patient care.

            Martin Crossley 2/01/2019
          • My first visit was an emergency appointment, I spoke to them on the phone at 10:30 and I had been seen by 11:30. I was dealt with professionally and quickly with the best solution for me being their priority. I was disappointed with the price but I was presented with the options and made the best choice for me.

          • I had used rock house for an emergency treatment and they seen me within an hour and managed to alleviate the pain. I then had a few more treatments too.
            I had some concerns with one treatment but Anoup has gone above and beyond to ensure that this was rectified. I genuinely can’t fault their approach to customer satisfaction.

            Peter Winfield 12/11/2018
          • Thank you so much for today. I was so nervous and you really calmed me down and I’m so grateful that you fixed my tooth temporarily. I have registered with your clinic and, while I can’t say I’m looking forward to visiting you again, I do at least trust that you can help.

          • Having had bad experiences in the past I am never a regular patient. But the staff at Rock Dental really helped me overcome my fear and I have been smiling ever since! Highly Recommended!

Gum Disease, Receeding Gums & More

Gum Disease, Receding Gums and More

Gum disease has the medical term periodontitis. It is a very serious problem and can cause many significant dental complications such as receding gums. Most worryingly, gum disease will lead to the loss of teeth.

A misleading term, as the disease is not actually a disease of the gums, but the bone underlying the gums. Bugs and bacteria reside in the mouth, and if left to linger will cause the gums to become inflamed (gingivitis). The inflamed gums are difficult to clean and harbour more bacteria in little pockets between the teeth and the gums. Bacteria love to live and breed in these pockets and as a result of this, they begin to destroy the bone surrounding the teeth. This (alveolar) bone supports the teeth, and as a result of the bone being destroyed, the teeth become loose and ultimately need to be removed.

What are the signs and symptoms of periodontitis (Gum Disease)?

  • Receding gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • A change in the way your teeth come together
  • A change in the fit of partial dentures
  • Visible pus surrounding the teeth and gums

If you are suffering from any of the above signs or symptoms, don't delay in seeking care. Contact Rock House Dental Practice for an assessment.

Who is at risk of Periodontitis?

There are lots of risk groups. Patients over the age of 40 are a significant risk group. Patients with a reduced immune response such as diabetics often suffer from periodontitis. However, the two major risk groups are smokers and patients that do not visit the dentist regularly.

Periodontitis is not reversible

There is no cure for periodontal disease. It is a lifelong condition, like diabetes. Management of periodontitis is possible, but no (reliable) technique to replace the bone that has been lost exists. For this reason, gum disease must be identified and treated as early as possible.

Receding Gums - Getting long in the tooth

"Getting long in the tooth" is used to describe someone that is advancing in age. This is actually a reflection of the fact that their gums have shrunk away due to gum disease consequently making their teeth appear longer!

Periodontal Treatment

The treatment of gum disease can be complex. Firstly, we will identify risk factors and attempt to remove them. Secondly, we will make sure you are cleaning effectively. Thirdly, we will clean the root surfaces of the teeth in order to make them as bacteria free as possible. If you have any loose or wobbly teeth, they will require removal. In advanced cases, we will need to refer you to a specialist periodontist. You will require regular maintenance and reassessment in the hope that your condition does not worsen.
