Perfect your smile for World Oral Health Day with Illume

Illume will be joining 75 countries worldwide on Thursday 20th March in support of World Oral Health Day.

Organised by the World Dental Federation, World Oral Health day is an annual event that celebrates the benefits of a healthy mouth and the importance of good oral health and hygiene.

The theme for this year’s event is ‘celebrating healthy smiles’, which focuses on protecting the teeth and mouths of the population throughout the whole of their lives - from childhood to old age.

Illume’s Practice Owner Tim Rumney comments, “World Oral Health Day provides an excellent opportunity to remind people about the importance of regular dental appointments to maintain a healthy mouth and smile.

“In many instances, some people do not attend regular dental appointments unless they are experiencing pain– in these cases their oral health has already been compromised, which could possibly have been prevented with regular examinations.”

At Illume, the oral health and well-being of all clients is of the utmost importance, which is why Illume provides a comprehensive service offering and excellent level of client care, focusing on each client and their individual needs.

Tim confirms, “At Illume we provide an alternative service to the quick dental check-up, which we call a Healthy Mouth Review – in this we offer a thorough examination that provides us with the opportunity to assess our clients’ needs and their desired outcome.

“This also provides us with the opportunity to review the health of the whole mouth, and bring any issues or problems to our clients’ attention.”

Illume’s Healthy Mouth Review consists of 14 different points - from assessment of pain and chewing function, to oral health and hygiene,  measurement of gum health and a mouth cancer check.

As part of the review, Illume dentists also provide a ‘smile check’ service which provides clients with the opportunity to express any concerns or ideas for improving their current smile.

In support of World Oral Health Day, Illume is offering new clients 50% off a New Client Consultation - a 40 minute thorough examination which is essentially a Healthy Mouth Review for those new to the practice. The offer is running until April 26th 2014, where new clients are also eligible to take advantage of Illume’s new Saturday morning service.
