  1. Dental Hygiene

  2. Diseases Linked to Poor Oral Hygiene: • Periodontal Disease • Cardiovascular Disease • Bacterial Pneumonia • Tooth Decay

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
