Healthy gums should be firm and a light shade of pink, although they may contain other pigments depending on your ethnic origin. When your gums are unhealthy, it will often lead to swelling, soreness or infection of the tissues supporting the teeth. This is called gum disease.

Rob is finding it very hard to believe – but he opened the practice 20 years ago, in February 2001. He has developed it from a single room on the first floor of 190 King Street (when it was a doctor’s practice) to expanding next door into 192 King Street. The practice now has three surgeries with high-tech equipment throughout.

Sharing toothbrushes and other ill-advised oral hygiene measures could play an influential role in spreading Covid-19. Researchers from Rey Juan Carlos University and Granada University in Spain have shown that sharing a toothbrush, toothpaste, the same container for the brush and not changing the brush after the viral process, are all possible routes of cross-contamination of coronavirus.

We want to make sure our patients have as stress-free an experience as possible at the practice. Rob Nichols is trained in providing sedation so that he can treat patients who suffer dental anxiety or even phobia more easily. He is also a member of the Society for Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry (SAAD). Two of our dental nurses, Tina and Sami, are trained in the procedure to support Rob in the surgery.

We have been delighted to welcome many of our patients back to the practice since we reopened in June. However, we realise that some of you may be concerned about attending for appointments during this difficult time. We do want to reassure you that we are following national guidelines closely and are working hard to keep you – and us – as safe as possible.
