Hygienst Workshop with "The Tooth Fairy"
We had a very special visit from the Tooth Fairy. The Tooth Fairy explained to us all about the importance of taking care of our teeth. Our milk teeth are our baby teeth and when our adult teeth grow those teeth will have to last us for the rest of our lives.
Sugar damages the enamel on our teeth, so cut down on sugar. Did you know that a small bar of dairy milk chocolate contains eight full tea spoons of sugar and a very small packet of raisins contains 6 tea spoons of sugar. When the enamel wears away, your teeth will begin to lose their nice shiny enamel colour and you will get tooth decay.
To brush your teeth properly you need to spend two seconds cleaning each individual tooth. Brush your teeth with your brush, using circular movements on each tooth.
Don't let plaque build up on your gums and your teeth. Wash carefully. Eat healthily. Cut down on sugar!
