TEACHER ENRICHMENT INITIATIVES

Pre-Activity 1A: Oral Health Slide Show

The slide show consists of 20 color slides of different mouths with accompanying descriptions (Oral Health Slide Show Teacher Script). The slides are intended to supplement the lessons as illustrations of good oral health and various oral health problems, such as caries and periodontal disease. Of particular interest is slide 2 - this slide shows the teeth of a 90-year-old woman with no cavities or gum disease. The point is, if you take care of your teeth, you may retain them well into old age!
