The Collis Curve & Autism


The number of people on the autism spectrum is rapidly growing. In the main this is because we are much better at understanding its symptoms and making an accurate diagnosis. Patients suffering from this disability are very sensitised and find all sorts of attention intrusive and disturbing. Electric toothbrushes, because of their noise and vibration, often cause great discomfort and cannot be tolerated at all. However, the simple act of rotating a conventional toothbrush to address the sides of the teeth and the gumline causes an impact to either the tongue or the cheek which such patients find difficult to accept. Gingival infection and dental decay are often the negative consequences of the rejection that frequently follows. Both the 'National Autistic Society' in the UK and its alternative, 'Treating Autism', approve of the Collis Curve. Because it addresses all the teeth's surfaces simultaneously, as well as working gently beneath the gumline, a simple backwards and forwards scrubbing action allows a carer - or the patient - achieve a high level of cleaning in a relatively short time without damage or threatening impacts. The recommendations on this website contain a number of testimonials from parents with children on the autism spectrum including the Best Blog from Ireland. If you want to smile as well, read it!!
