Dental Health Week!

Boy did we have a fun week learning all about dental health! We read stories, Evan's mom came in to teach us about going to the dentist and how to take care of our teeth and much more!

One day we took a toothbrush, a brown tooth (on construction paper) and white paint and brushed the tooth clean! We imagined the tooth was dirty and needed to be cleaned. We used the technique of brushing in circles in order to take care of the tooth and to be gentle. By the end, our brown tooth was white and clean!





























Another activity we completed this week was practicing flossing! It is important to floss your teeth at least every other day in order to get the food and gunk that gets caught in between each tooth. Even if we brush our teeth using the circle technique, we can possibly miss in between the teeth! To practice this, we took Lego Mega Blocks, Play-doh and string. The Play-doh was put in between the "teeth" on the blocks and after wrapping the string around our fingers, we used it to get all of the Play-doh out of the block! I had the class work in partners for this activity so one student could hold the block still while the other one flossed it! The entire class told me they were ready to floss their own teeth after practicing with the blocks today!







A third activity we completed this week was learning the difference between foods that are healthy and unhealthy for our teeth. After a good discussion on healthy vs unhealthy foods, the class drew pictures on two different teeth. One tooth was happy because it was getting fed healthy food, the other tooth was unhappy because it was getting fed unhealthy food.

  1. Gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss in adults and due to the missing teeth problem most of the adults need to go for dental implant surgery. Proper brushing technique helps to prevent gum disease. Therefore people need to follow proper brushing and flossing technique to prevent such disease. Brushing and flossing both are important to keep our teeth clean and white. You have described a few important things in your post which is very much essential to know for maintaining a good oral health.
