Summary

Oral health and systemic health are inextricably linked. And the effects and effectors of ill-health travel in both directions–from the oral cavity to the body and from the body to the oral cavity. These links involve microbial assailants as well as our own immune responses to these assaults. As dental hygienists, we are in a unique position to be early identifiers of any inflammatory conditions in the oral cavity or oral indicators of systemic health issues. We can then educate and guide our clients to the appropriate treatments, specialists, and actions to improve oral and overall health.
