What is Gingivitis?

Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums. It is the initial stage of gum disease and the easiest to treat.  The direct cause of gingivitis is plaque- the soft, sticky, colourless film of bacteria that forms constantly on the teeth and gums. If the plaque is not removed by daily brushing and flossing, it produces toxins that can irritate the gum tissue, causing gingivitis.

how your smile can help you get a job, make friends and influence people

Research from Align Technology reveals that people with a nice smile are seen as more successful, wealthier and more likely to get a job than those with crooked teeth. They're also seen as more popular, more social, healthier and happier.

Research by Align Technology, the makers of Invisalign clear aligners, suggests that appearance is more important in an interview than having knowledge of the role or even oozing confidence and personality!  Nearly a half of people surveyed felt that not having a perfect smile would knock their confidence in the workplace, to the extent that a fifth are willing to give up their annual holiday in favour of great teeth.

the gift of giving - christmas appeal

Youngcare works to provide choice in care and housing options for young people with high care needs.

Right now, 7,500 young Australians (under the age of 65) with 24/7 care needs are living in aged care facilities around the country, simply because there are very limited alternatives. A further 700,000 are being cared for at home by family and friends, often with limited support.

Youngcare works to change this by building more appropriate housing; financially assisting through At Home Care Grants; and providing information and advice through the Youngcare Connect hotline.
