WHAT IS DENTAL HYGIENE?
This branch of dentistry exclusively deals with looking after the gums, or to give them their correct name, the gingivae. Healthy gingivae are vitally important, not only as a foundation for healthy teeth, but also in general health. There is an increasing body of research that demonstrates a link between poor gingival health and systemic disease such as diabetes and heart disease. Although it is not clear whether chronic gingival inflammation causes such disease, or these diseases cause chronic gingival inflammation, it is widely accepted that improving your gingival health does have a positive impact on general health and vice versa.
