What is gum disease?

Gum diseases is caused by excessive plaque build-up. It is characterised by soreness, swelling or infection of the soft tissues supporting your teeth. There are two forms of gum disease, gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and periodontitis (advanced gum disease).

If gum disease is left untreated, the jaw suffers bone loss, which will eventually lead to tooth loss. Our hygienists are skilled in gum disease management and use a range of techniques to help keep it under control.

Patient Testimonials**

I have been a dental patient of Sachin Patel for many years. I am a very nervous patient and Sachin is always gentle and takes time to explain the procedures before he starts any treatment.


I was a very nervous patient who hadn’t been near a dentist in over thirty years. What a find! He instantly put me at ease and explained fully the treatment that I would require.

Barbara (a very satisfied patient)

We cannot speak too highly of his abilities as a first class and ‘up to date’ dental surgeon. He has enormous skill and ability and combines these qualities with a lightness of touch, ‘soft hands’ and a caring manner.

Finlay and Caroline

The whole experience from start to finish was positive, and knowing I could call you with any concerns was very reassuring, and with yourself and vangellis talking me through every step and stage of my treatment made it a good experience for me.
