In this activity, show the students the slides numbered 15–19 from the Oral Health Slide Show in Pre-Activity 1A. Before showing the slides you may choose to explain the different forms of tooth replacement, or you may choose to talk about the different replacements as you show the slides. Make a class set of the handout “Types of Tooth Replacements.” The students can use the handout to follow the slides. Refer to the Oral Health Slide Show Teacher Script in Pre-Activity 1A.
