Dental Health Freebie!

This morning we had our dental health presentation by a local orthodontist.

This lady is ah-mazing! I love this presentation and the kids eat it up. She talks allllll about how eating too much sugar makes little sugar bugs in your mouth... and when you don't brush your teeth, those little bugs leave little.... presents.... in your mouth.

My kids couldn't stop talking about how they HAD to brush their teeth because the sugar bugs would go to the bathroom in their mouth - EWWW!

Whatever works, right?!

After she gives her presentation, she calls up some students to show them exactly how to brush!

Here are some sweeties dressed as teeth:

Here comes the gums!
She talks about healthy/unhealthy choices and sticks the food to the teeth!

After all that food, we have to BRUSH!
We learn how to brush the cheek side, the tongue side, then the top side. Tooth-by-tooth.

Lastly, we learned how to floss:
 The kids think this is the funniest thing ever and they learn a lot! She also asks one of the students to duck down below the gums and the students learn that they must brush their gums even if one of their baby teeth has fallen out!

After our presentation, I had my students complete a couple writing activities. I thought I would offer them up for free in case anyone else is learning about dental health!

Just click on the image below to see what's inside :)

I hope everyone has a *SWEET* Valentine's Day tomorrow!

  4. Thanks for the freebie! We're going to try and fit dental health in, somewhere between Black History Month, President's Day and Read Across America! This week alone we had our 100th Day and Valentine's Day! February is sooo busy!

    I love the blanket {or whatever that is} that they're holding for the gums!! And I love how she has "a tooth" duck down to remind them to brush their gums. Gonna have to pass that on to my kiddos! Brushing our teeth has been an issue!

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  10. With between 60 to 90% of faculty -aged children and nearly 100% of adult who experience dental tooth decay worldwide (“Oral health,” 2012), dental health is an issue that should be met with avocation and prevention-based programs. Dental health is definitely an facet of our way of life that lots of ignore, or just blown aside that's, until there's an issue that nearly always lead to relentless discomfort. Mouth and facial discomfort are simply the acute problems of poor dental health that arises when the issue is worse enough. The actual qualms with poor dental health originate from connected psychosocial issues, secondary health problems, and also the reduced capability to chew, bit, smile, as well as speak (“Oral health,” 2012). Within the U . s . States, dental practitioners tell you they are seeing a rise in the amount of young children all earnings levels with tooth decay (Saint Louis, 2012). Further, these tooth decay are frequently contain a lot decay that dental professional suggest using general anesthesia since the procedure will probably be painful.

  15. Other studies that have connected bad oral health to increased mortality rates suggested that underlying reason was becausen people who have lost all of their natural teeth are more likely to die is due to the fact that they have to change their diets to compensate for their lack of teeth and thus did not get the proper nutrition they need to stay healthy.

  30. As a preschool teacher in California, I understand the need to use innovative methods to ensure that our kids acquire and maintain healthy dental habits. With the recent budget cuts for dental programs here and throughout the US, I feel that it's my duty to increase my kids' awareness of the importance of caring for their teeth. That's why I took them on field trip to tour of monrovia dental care facility. They helped teach the kids great habits such as brushing, flossing, and eating plenty of fruits and vegetables. They showed them x-rays of what their teeth actually look like inside which the kids really loved. Keep up the great work!

  59. The patients experiencing gum loss, or recession, have to do various surgeries for this problem.Now a days dentists do Pinhole Surgical Technique through which a small pinhole is made and then a specially designed tool is then used to loosen the gums and slide them into the desired position.
