Oral Hygiene is the corner stone of having a healthy mouth that links into great general health. ‘Heart disease’, ‘infertility’, ‘kidney and liver disease’ are a few of the general health issues linked to the chronic inflammatory process in the gums. So why then do we know so little about the connection between these key health factors. Why do patients cringe when the phone rings are they hear “John, it has been 6 months since your last hygiene visit, when can I book you in?”

In a survey conducted at Caring 4 Smiles, we found that almost 90% of patients ( young and old ) had never been correctly taught to brush or floss. Some said “Oh, I have an electric toothbrush“, implying that the mere ownership of an oral care instrument guaranteed their “Oral Hygiene” was under control.

A dental hygienist has a vast experience in oral hygiene systems and is meticulous in teaching great protocols to every patient. They monitor and mentor you through the maintenance process. As a result of this, we are seeing a great reduction in ‘gum disease’,  bleeding gums’, ‘bad breath’, and ‘dental decay’ in our patients.

May we invite you into our family of dental patients experiencing great Oral Care so that over the long term you have exceptional teeth and a dazzling smile and lower the ‘costs of dentistry’ over your lifetime.
