          • I have been a patient here for a few years and the service is always first rate. All of the staff make you feel very welcome as going to the dentist is not everyone's cup of tea. I usually see Kiran who is highly professional and extremely dedicated. She always clearly explains what she has found in her examinations and... read more

          • I have been a patient for many years and would not go anywhere else, despite living some distance away.

          • 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
          • Highly recommended!!! The service from start to finish is impeccable topped off by a great team and experienced dentists to put you at ease! Thank you & keep up the hard work!!! :-)

            Thank you to Dr Nadra and the team.

            teaguey11 7/19/2019
          • 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
          • These guys have proved time and again for me that they care more, when I needed emergency care they performed miracles and then repeatedly rang me to check how I was. Then they coached me to make sure it didn't reoccur. They've repeatedly told me not to have treatment if they wouldn't themselves rather than just selling to the max.... read more

          • 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.

          • 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.

          • I had a wisdom tooth extracted at Rock House Dental Practice and am very happy with the service. Dr. Nandra was brilliant, it was all done in just a few minutes and I didn't feel a thing.

      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. I have required some dental work which was crucial, the time, care and the level of work done was Ace... read more

Is your toothbrush damaging your teeth?

Excessive use of a toothbrush. Is toothbrushing damaging your teeth?

Can a toothbrush be dangerous? Surely not…
Sadly, it’s true, sometimes we tell patients that toothbrushing is damaging their teeth. Does that mean stopping brushing – NO!!! We would never tell a patient to not brush their teeth!!!

It’s all in the toothbrush technique.

Brushing your teeth incorrectly or improper use of a toothbrush can damage your teeth. Imagine washing your car with a wire brush – it wouldn’t do the paintwork much good would it? In the same way, if you brush with a hard-bristled brush, overtime you can wear away the protective coating of your teeth. Therefore, its important to use a soft bristled brush, or, even better, an electric toothbrush with a warning light that tells you if you are pressing too hard.

It’s not just your toothbrush!

Toothbrushing alone doesn’t wear away your teeth but works in conjunction with other forces. Acid on your teeth from food and drink, or intrinsically produced acid (i.e. heartburn) will cause the enamel to weaken and be more prone to loss when brushed. Similarly, excessive tooth grinding, or clenching can cause the teeth to weaken at the gum margins and this is again prone to damage by the toothbrush.

What damage is caused?

Commonly, we see notches at the necks of the teeth (in the area where the teeth meet the gum). These almost look like the notch cut by a lumberjack’s axe when cutting down a tree!

What are the symptoms of toothbrush damage?

Initially, you may not experience any symptoms, but as the tooth wear gets closer to the nerve, you can begin to experience sensitive teeth or even toothache.

Getting long in the tooth…

We’ve all heard that phrase. It doesn’t mean that the teeth are growing, but actually that the gums are receding or shrinking back, thus, making the teeth appear longer.

How can I prevent tooth wear and tooth recession?

1. Use an electric toothbrush with a pressure indicator
2. Hold the electric toothbrush with your forefinger and thumb, not in the palm of your hand. Therefore, the lack of power will prevent you from putting excessive forces on the toothbrush
3. Use floss and tepes to get in between the teeth to clean the surfaces that the teeth miss.
4. Never brush your teeth immediately after having something to eat or drink that is acidic in nature. That includes juices, fruits, fizzy drinks etc…
5. If you find yourself clenching your teeth or grinding your teeth, mention this to your dentist. As a result, your dentist may provide specialised treatment to resolve this.
6. See your dentist regularly for check-ups!
7. Visit the dental hygienist for professional teeth cleaning.
