The mouth is rightfully called the gateway to the body. We talk, taste, chew and show affection with our mouth. Needless to say the mouth is constantly under attack from pathogens, bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites to name only a few, if these have their way they can cause irreversible damage to teeth and gums causing extreme pain and persistent mouth odour. Protecting your mouth means protecting your body too, most bacteria start-off from the mouth, find their way into the bloodstream and make us sick.
The field of dental hygiene seeks to identify and educate people about practices and habits that are important to maintain or improve the health of their teeth and gums. People who work in this field are known as dental hygienists or oral hygienists. They are licensed dental practitioners registered with a dental body within their state or province to perform preventive and clinical services supporting the overall health of the teeth and gums.
