- Happy teeth for happy smiles
- With an aim to establish and promote the importance of good oral care habits, an oral dental check up camp was organised on 6th December, 2017 at Staford School by Dr. Naeem Ahmad and Dr. Taseer Bashir from Career Dental College.
The camp was initiated with dental awareness talk, educating students about common dental ailments, especially stressing on tooth decay and gum diseases and measures to prevent them. The students were briefed about the eating patterns and food choices which cause tooth decay.
The dental surgeons vividly explained about the possible formation of harmful acid which develops when bacteria (plaque) get in contact with sugar in the mouth which ultimately results in tooth decay. “Added sugars often are present in soft drinks, candies, cookies, pastries and therefore to help control the consumption of sugar. One must read the food labels and choose the right foods and beverages that are low in added sugar”, they added.
The camp gave the opportunity to assess the oral health awareness among the students and learn about the oral hygiene practices which are of great importance in day to day life.
