Healthy Gums

Your gums are like cushions for your teeth: they surround the teeth in the jaws and help to support them. Looking after your gums is just as important as looking after your teeth. Red and swollen gums that bleed when you brush them could be a sign of gum disease, also known as gingivitis.

When gingivitis is left untreated it can develop further into a type of infection known as periodontitis, which affects the entire area surrounding the tooth. A result of this could be losing your tooth so it's vital to avoid.

To keep your mouth in tip-top shape we recommend you come in for regular hygiene appointments and dental check-ups.

Patients Reviews

  My dental health has never been better since I joined Village Dental Health 7 years ago. Dr Colin, Louise and Ellie are all absolutely fantastic

  Colin is an outstanding, competent dentist and furthermore is friendly and warm.

- Glenda Woods, 72, Ickenham Replacement gold inlay

 

  Very thorough, very good explanation, very reassuring, felt would be in very good hands. Excellent service provided on a consistent basis, very caring, friendly and professional. Good explanations, always has time, regularly checks with the patient during treatment, very calm approach, good team support. Bruce Mutch is very patient focused on an individual basis, his very reassuring and calm approach helps to relax the patient. Previously I was apprehensive about dentists generally, but not at this practice.

- Mark Galloway, 58, Gerrards Cross Routine check ups and cleaning. Previously crowns.

 

  Now a positive experience going to the dentist rather than something to dread. Fantastic professional service from the moment you enter until you leave. You could not beat it. Reassures, comfortable, listens to and relaxes compared to the very stressful experiences with previous dentists. The relationship is based on trust – I have total confidence in the professional expertise and empathetic attitude – previously a 'nervous patient'. All staff are friendly and professional. It is clear that there is an ethos of putting the patient at ease and providing very excellent standards of care. I just wish I had found this practice earlier.

- Anne Garrihy, 53, Gerrards Cross Routine check ups and cleanings, previously had crowns and fillings.
