Slide 1 :
Oral Health Rabi Raj Satyal RDH, BPH Dental Hygiene lecturer Himal Dental Hospital and Institute of Dental Sciences 2012
Slide 2 :
Did you know that your teeth are meant to last throughout your entire life?
Slide 3 :
Let’s take a look at some of their functions… They sure are!
Slide 4 :
How about chewing? Can you imagine trying to bite into an apple or your favorite pizza without your front teeth?
Slide 5 :
Your front teeth (incisors) were designed to “bite into” things.
Slide 6 :
How about these? Can you imagine trying to swallow a piece of meat without chewing it up first? ouch
Slide 7 :
That’s what your back teeth (molars) were designed to do --- “grind food” for easy swallowing.
Slide 8 :
What about the way you talk? That’s because our teeth help us to pronounce words, by keeping our tongue in place.
Slide 9 :
And the way you laugh? Sometimes things are funny, and we just have to laugh!
Slide 10 :
Our teeth are very important for not only smiling, but also for how we look and feel about ourselves. And smile…
Slide 11 :
That’s why it’s important to do our best to take care of them!
Slide 12 :
Let’s talk about some things you can do…
Slide 13 :
What about the foods you eat? Do they include: Grains Fruits/Vegetables Meat Dairy
Slide 14 :
How about snacking? Did you know that sweet, “sticky” snacks are harmful to your teeth?
Slide 15 :
That’s right! You see, each day a thin film of plaque grows on your teeth. This plaque contains “germs” (bacteria).
Slide 16 :
Each time you drink a soda, munch on a bag of chips or eat a candy bar, the food (sugar) left on your teeth becomes a “meal” for these germs (bacteria).
Slide 17 :
They (the bacteria) produce a harmful substance called “acid,” which destroys your teeth.
Slide 18 :
Each “acid attack” lasts about 20 minutes. After repeated “acid attacks,” your teeth become weak, and a hole or “cavity” is formed.
Slide 19 :
Choose healthy snacks, and have fewer snacks or drinks that are sugary or sticky. Rinse your mouth afterward if you are not able to brush right away. To reduce these “acid attacks”…
Slide 20 :
Not only that, but… These “germs” (bacteria) create another problem… They cause your gums to become sore and bleed. It’s called “gum disease”or “gingivitis.”
Slide 21 :
Did you know that certain activities and habits can harm your teeth? Huh? Like what?
Slide 22 :
Contact sports… So be sure to wear a mouth guard and protective equipment. If a tooth gets knocked out, do not touch the wound site, keep the tooth wet in some milk or a moist cloth, do NOT rinse the tooth under running water, and see a dentist within 30 minutes.
Slide 23 :
Habits… Don’t use your teeth to: Cut things Hold onto pens/pencils Bite nails Crack nuts Crunch ice Open bottles or hairpins
Slide 24 :
Tobacco… All tobacco products are harmful, including “chew!” They cause: Stained teeth Bad breath Gum disease Addiction Mouth and throat cancer
Slide 25 :
Oral Piercing… This new fashion can cause some serious and painful problems… Chipped teeth Infection Nerve damage Allergic reaction Risk for diseases like hepatitis, tetanus and HIV www.mcgrathdental.com
Slide 26 :
Now let’s take a look at how often you should brush and floss your teeth. Oh no, don’t tell me you forget sometimes…
Slide 27 :
Brush for two minutes twice each day with a soft bristled toothbrush. (Be sure to use a toothpaste with fluoride in it!)
Slide 28 :
Proper Brushing Tilt the brush at a 45° angle against the gumline. Brushing only 2-3 teeth at a time, gently brush the outside, inside and chewing surfaces of all your teeth. Use short back-and-forth or circular strokes. Don’t forget to brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath! Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Oral Health Program CDS 3rd Batch Himal Dental Hospital and Instiitute of dental sciences
Slide 29 :
Floss your teeth once each day to remove plaque from in between your teeth.
Slide 30 :
Proper Flossing Now, gently follow the curves of your teeth, sliding the floss up and down the tooth’s surface a few times. Be sure to go below the gumline. Using your middle fingers, wrap about 18” of floss around them (but not too tightly). Leave about an inch or two of floss between your hands. Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Oral Health Program Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Oral Health Program
Slide 31 :
And to be sure your teeth and gums are healthy… See a dental hygienist twice a year for a dental exam and professional cleaning. (X-rays will also be taken to look for cavities and other problems.) Oral Hygiene Department Himal Dental Hospital and Instiitute of Dental Sciences
Slide 32 :
Now that you know these facts… Take good care of your teeth and gums to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. And remember… they were meant to last throughout your life...
