Oral Health and Prevention
Good oral hygiene contributes to maintaining oral health in children and adults. Ideal oral hygiene requires preventative treatments that dental assistants can facilitate in order to ensure maintenance of oral health and disease inhibition. Throughout history, oral hygiene has manifested itself in a variety of ways. Today, mouth rinses, fluoride varnishes, and sealants provide dental assistants with tools to ensure good oral hygiene and health for their patients.
