Oral hygiene (mouth care) involves cleansing of the mouth, gums, teeth and dentures. Oral hygiene is one aspect of care that is often neglected by care providers. Staff shortages and time constraints may make it difficult to provide the quality of care that is needed. Mouth care, however, is an important part of overall personal hygiene. When you assist people with their personal care, you must also ensure that they receive good oral hygiene. The information in this book will increase your knowledge about how to assist someone with oral hygiene.
