DO YOU KNOW WHAT A PERSON'S MOUTH REVEALS ABOUT THEM? DO YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF PROMOTING GOOD HeALTH?
Besides helping someone have a more beautiful smile and fresher breath, a dental hygienist is often the first person encountered in a dental office who may note potential health problems just by looking into a person's mouth!
Inflammation in the mouth may signal inflammation in other parts of the body, including
the cardiovascular system; periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease often go
hand-in-hand. A close look into your mouth by a dental hygienist or a dentist may
reveal diabetes or pre-diabetes, auto immune disorders, nutritional imbalance, thyroid
disorder, inflammatory bowel disease, kidney disease, oral cancer, or a number of
other health-related issues.
