About Dental Hygiene
Dental hygiene is the process of keeping the mouth, teeth, gums clean and healthy by regular brushing and flossing and preventive dental care to prevent teeth decay and other diseases. It is also known as oral hygiene. It is used to prevent the build-up of plaque, the sticky film of bacteria and food that forms on the teeth. Dental care is a broad, umbrella term used to describe an issue involving the teeth and supporting tissues that is of high importance to be treated by the relevant professional. Emergency dental care does not always involve pain, although this is a common signal that something needs to be looked at. Pain can originate from the tooth, surrounding tissues or can have the sensation of originating in the teeth but be caused by an independent source. Oral Hygiene is one of the important branches of medical sciences that deals with the management of the diseases and diagnosis related to dental discomfort mostly on periodontal issues.
