The entire team at StoneRock has just complete 3 days of extremely intensive training in “comprehensive care” and I believe it has shown us all exactly how we want to care for all of our patients from now on.
Comprehensive care is a way of viewing every aspect of the health of the mouth (the teeth and any restorations, the gums, how the teeth meet and the appearance of the smile) and viewing that as an integral part of the patients general health and well being of that person.
We now know that gum disease, in particular, can impact on and be related to a number of systemic (general health) conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and stroke. Problems with how the teeth meet and the forces put upon them by clenching and grinding can lead to head and neck pain, jaw joint discomfort and worn and damaged teeth all of which can be prevented by appropriate care. Patients who are dissatisfied with the condition and appearance of the their smile can lack confidence and be held back socially and professionally by this. A comprehensive approach to their condition would look at this and would offer ways of correcting it as part of an overall plan to improve the health and stability of their mouth.
At StoneRock we are making a lifelong commitment to continuing development and improvement of the services that we provide. We are all very excited about this new stage and we are looking to encourage all of our patients to make a lifelong commitment to maintaining complete oral health. If you would like to know more about the services that we offer then please call the surgery on 01580 752202 and we will be happy to help.
