          • 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.

          • 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.

          • 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. 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

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.

          • 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.

          • I cannot recommend this dentist highly enough. They are kind, considerate and eminently professional. They were also nothing short of amazing when my autistic son needed s wisdom tooth removed. They were so expert and understanding with him they removed the tooth without the need for a general anaesthetic and hospital visit. Brilliant.

      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.

Toothache - It Really Does Hurt

Don't ignore toothache...

Toothache is usually more than just a tooth ache, your tooth is telling you that there is a problem. A toothache is a dental emergency and can turn into a serious problem.

What causes a toothache?

There are many causes of dental pain:

  • Decay will eat its way through the tooth an into the nerve
  • Trauma may cause a nerve concussion
  • Gum disease can irritate the tooth
  • The recession of the gums can lead to the tooth becoming sensitive
  • A fractured tooth may expose the nerve
  • A dental abscess may have developed which may eventually lead to a facial swelling.

Tooth decay or gum disease cause damage to the tooth and allow bugs to enter into the nerve structure. These bugs and bacteria cause inflammation within the nerve structure. The nerve is a little brain within each tooth and this grey mater expands when it becomes inflamed. This is similar to when you get a headache, however, when the brain expands, the skull bones are also able to shift and allow expansion. As the tooth is a closed unit, i.e. it does not expand, the expansion from inflammation is acutely painful. Any of you that have experienced tooth pain will be able to vouch for that, I'm sure.

Untreated, a toothache will lead to an infected tooth. This will become an abscess and you will need root canal treatment. Therefore, it is always wise to treat a toothache whilst it is reversible.

How to get rid of a toothache?

Early diagnosis is the key. Often the early stages of tooth ache are reversible and something as simple as a filling can fix it. If left to get infected, more complex treatments will need to take place.

Home remedies do not work and consequently may actually make the problem worse. Painkillers are useful in masking the problem until you can see a dentist.
