Dental Hygiene


Diseases linked to poor oral hygiene

Diseases Linked to Poor Oral Hygiene:

  • Periodontal Disease

  • Cardiovascular Disease

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

  • Tooth Decay


Periodontal disease

Periodontal Disease

  • Early Stage is called gingivitis

  • Inflammation and infections of the teeth’s support

  • Caused from long term effects of plaque deposits on the teeth

  • Long term effects can cause the teeth to become loose as pockets form around the teeth from support loss.


Cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular Disease

  • Caused by narrowed, blocked or stiffened blood vessels that prevent your heart, brain or other parts of your body from receiving enough blood.

  • Symptoms: Chest pain, shortness of breath, pain, numbness, weakness, and coldness in your limbs.

  • Other Causes: An unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, being overweight, and smoking.

  • Treatments: Can use medications, but a lifestyle change is the most significant way to treat the disease.


Bacterial pneumonia

Bacterial Pneumonia

  • The result of breathing Oropharyngeal flora into the lower respiratory tract and failure of host defense mechanisms to eliminate the contaminating bacteria, which multiply in the lung and cause infection.

  • The bacteria that causes the Pneumonia is anaerobic and dental plaque is the main source of this bacteria.

  • Poor oral hygiene and periodontal disease can promote Oropharyngeal colonization


Tooth decay

Tooth Decay

  • “Cavities”

  • Very common problem, especially in children and young adults. It is second only to the common cold.

  • Caused from poor oral hygiene techniques and also from a poor diet.

  • Cavities don’t hurt unless they grow very large and cause tooth fractures or affect the nerves.

  • Carbohydrates (sugars and starches) increase the risk of tooth decay.

  • Sticky foods are also more harmful than non sticky foods because they stay on the teeth.


How to educate those in the communities

How to educate those in the communities:

  • ‪Good vs. bad foods for your teeth

  • Limit the sugar intake (chocolate and candies for kids or coffee for adults).

  • Brush teeth at least 2x per day

  • Up to down for the top teeth

  • Down up for bottom teeth

  • Molars in the back are in circular motions.
