Slide 2 - AGENDA Oral Health & It’s Importance Tooth Structure Cavities & Plaque Preventive & Corrective Measures Dentist’s Role Few Home Remedies
Slide 3 - What is oral health?
Slide 4 - It’s keeping your teeth, gums and mouth healthy!
Slide 5 - Why do you suppose this is important?
Slide 6 - Well, let’s take a look at how we use and need our teeth.
Slide 7 - Appearance Teeth are very important to your appearance. They not only make a nice smile, but they also shape your face.
Slide 8 - Chewing Teeth are important to chew food properly. The chewing of food with your teeth is the first step in the digestion of food. If food cannot be chewed properly, it can cause problems with digestion.
Slide 9 - Talking (speech) Teeth are important for speaking Teeth work with the lips, cheeks and tongue, allowing us to pronounce words.
Slide 10 - Now that you understand how important your teeth are, let’s learn about the different parts of a tooth
Slide 11 - What a tooth looks like. The CROWN: The part of the tooth above the gums. The ROOT: The part of the tooth below the gumline. Just as the roots of a tree hold the tree in the ground, the roots of your teeth hold your teeth in your mouth.
Slide 12 - The tooth is made of 3 layers: ENAMEL: Covers the crown. Is the protective covering. Is the hardest thing in our body, even harder than bone!
Slide 13 - The tooth is made of 3 layers: PULP: Fills the space inside the tooth. Contains blood vessels and nerves that keep the tooth alive!
Slide 14 - Now that we know what a tooth looks like, let’s talk about what makes a cavity in your tooth! Cavities are caused by PLAQUE! What is PLAQUE? An invisible film of germs that constantly grows on your teeth. It feels fuzzy. Rub your tongue on your teeth, do they feel fuzzy? You brush your teeth to remove PLAQUE!
Slide 15 - Each day a thin film of plaque grows on our teeth This plaque contains “germs” (bacteria). Sugar from foods and drinks are turned into acid by these germs. This acid attacks our teeth and softens the hard surface until a hole or cavity is formed. Mestman, Herman, What To Do For Healthy Teeth
Slide 16 - How can you avoid getting cavities? Avoid sugary, sticky foods or snacks, and choose nutritious foods like fruits, vegetables and cheese Avoid drinking soda or other sugary drinks, and drink more milk & water Avoid snacking all day long, and limit the amount of snacks you have throughout the day X X X
Slide 17 - Repairing Cavities Does a cavity heal itself? No - only your dentist can fix a cavity, by removing the decay and putting a special filling material in the hole.
Slide 18 - Now that you understand what a cavity is let’s take a look at how plaque affects your gums too! When plaque is left on your teeth for a while, harmful “germs” (bacteria) begin to increase and irritate your gum tissues. This causes bleeding and your gums may become sore. This is called gum disease.
Slide 19 - To prevent cavities, gum disease and bad breath you need to brush and floss your teeth regularly…
Slide 20 - When and How long should you brush? For about two minutes and at least twice each day.
Slide 21 - How do you floss your teeth? Use 18” of floss Leave an inch or two to work with Slide the floss in between each tooth, and move it up & down against the tooth. Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Oral Health Program
Slide 22 - How often should you floss? Once each day to remove plaque from in between your teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach.
Slide 23 - To keep your teeth functioning properly, you must see your dentist regularly.
Slide 24 - When you visit the dentist, several things will probably be done…
Slide 25 - # 1 A visual exam. A dentist will look at your teeth, gums and the way your teeth come together when you bite. The dentist is looking for tooth decay, gum disease, mouth sores & whether or not you might need braces.
Slide 26 - # 2 X-rays will be taken of all your teeth. These x-rays will show not only tooth decay, but the roots of the teeth and the bone around them. They will also show any teeth that have not come in yet, and any extra teeth as well.
Slide 27 - #3 A Professional Cleaning A dental hygienist will remove any plaque or hard deposits called calculus from your teeth using special instruments. Your teeth will then be polished with a special kind of toothpaste. This will make your teeth feel smooth and clean.
