          • 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'. :)

          • 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 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

          • Today I had my first appointment to see what work I needed doing and form a treatment plan, I'm an extremely nervous patient but I have to say this is a 5 star dentist with a 5 star service. The dentist I saw was brilliant! He was very clam and explained everything to me, I wasn't rushed and I left... read more

          • My dentist merged with the Rock practice a short while ago, and then moved on, so I had only had an initial inspection with the new dentist but found them most welcoming.
            On Saturday I lost a Crown from my front tooth and as I had important presentations on Tuesday I was a little concerned.
            I rang on Sunday morning to leave...

          • 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.

          • 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.

          • 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.

          • This practice has a very professional and relaxed feel about it. The treatment is carefully planned and executed. Overall very happy with the service provided. Would definitely recommend to others.

          • 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.

          • Absolute brilliant dentist, and has looked after myself and my daughter for a few years, would highly recommend the practice and the staff are very friendly to, makes you feel at ease especially the daughter as she can be nervous

          • I've never been to a dentist before even though I'm in my 20s. I've always heard of people hating their dental visits but Mr Nandra was fantastic! Very professional and pleasant, answered all my questions and explained everything in detail! Great experience!
            Hopefully my next appointment with the hygienist will be as great!

          • I was very happy with all aspects of my visit to Rock House. From the very welcoming staff, to the excellent professionalism of the team who undertook my treatment. The practice itself was very clean and well maintained, and I would definitely recommend it to others! Thanks to everyone at Rock House for making me so comfortable!

          • 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. Being in severe pain they managed to book me in for an appointment the day after I called in which was excellent. Highly... read more

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.
