Careers in Public Health Dentistry !

Dental Public Health is the science and art of preventing and controlling dental diseases and promoting dental health through organized community efforts.
Community Health Programs by Trinity Care Foundation

There is a gap between research findings, oral disease prevention, health promotion practices and knowledge of the public and the health professions.

School  Health Programs by Trinity Care Foundation
Expansion of communitybased disease prevention and lowering of barriers to personal oral health care are needed to meet the needs of the population.

Dental Public Health is that form of dental practice that serves the community as a patient rather than the individual.

Public health dentists promote oral health by:

♦assessing the oral health needs of the community
♦developing and implementing oral health policy
♦providing programs and services that address oral health issues.

School Health Treatment Programs by Trinity Care Foundation

Dental Public Health specialists must have broad knowledge and skills in public health administration, research methodology, the prevention and control of oral diseases, and the delivery and financing of oral health care.

Dental Sealants

What are dental sealants?

   Public Health Dentistry Organization
Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to protect them from tooth decay. Most tooth decay in children and teens occurs on these surfaces. Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from tooth decay by keeping germs and food particles out of these grooves.

Which teeth are suitable for sealants?

Permanent molars are the most likely to benefit from sealants. The first molars usually come into the mouth when a child is about 6 years old. Second molars appear at about age 12. It is best if the sealant is applied soon after the teeth have erupted, before they have a chance to decay.

How are sealants applied?

Applying sealants does not require drilling or removing tooth structure. The process is short and easy. After the tooth is cleaned, a special gel is placed on the chewing surface for a few seconds. The tooth is then washed off and dried. Then, the sealant is painted on the tooth. The dentist or dental hygienist also may shine a light on the tooth to help harden the sealant. It takes about a minute for the sealant to form a protective shield.

Are sealants visible?

Sealants can only be seen up close. Sealants can be clear, white, or slightly tinted, and usually are not seen when a child talks or smiles.

Will sealants make teeth feel different?

As with anything new that is placed in the mouth, a child may feel the sealant with the tongue. Sealants, however, are very thin and only fill the pits and grooves of molar teeth.

How long will sealants last?

A sealant can last for as long as 5 to 10 years. Sealants should be checked at your regular dental appointment and can be reapplied if they are no longer in place.

Will sealants replace fluoride for cavity protection?

No. Fluorides, such as those used in toothpaste, mouth rinse, and community water supplies also help to prevent decay, but in a different way. Sealants keep germs and food particles out of the grooves by covering them with a safe plastic coating. Sealants and fluorides work together to prevent tooth decay.

Trinity Care Foundation Programs

How do sealants fit into a preventive dentistry program?

Sealants are one part of a child's total preventive dental care. A complete preventive dental program also includes fluoride, twice-daily brushing , wise food choices, and regular dental care.

Why is sealing a tooth better than waiting for decay and filling the cavity?

Decay damages teeth permanently. Sealants protect them. Sealants can save time, money, and the discomfort sometimes associated with dental fillings. Fillings are not permanent. Each time a tooth is filled, more drilling is done and the tooth becomes a little weaker.

Children's Oral Health Problems

school health
Oral Public Health Programs
The main reason of oral health problems in children all over the world is their parents don’t seem to spend enough time on taking proper oral care of their children. Children don’t know how they should take care of their oral health and what will happen if they will not look after dental care. That is why many children facing the common dental problems like, tooth decay, yellow teeth, bad smelling mouth, tooth swelling and gum diseases like gingivitis.

The children who get such oral health problem also lack self-confidence and get various social phobias and other various psychological conditions. Hence oral health problems can hammer the child's overall future life. Thus oral health problems can be the reason for medical conditions and vice-versa.. Public Health Dentistry Programs

Oral health problems in children are a major cause of concern for many parents. Such parents try to do their best to maintain the oral health of their children. But still they themselves don’t know much about proper dental care.

These problems can also develop impaired speech and make it difficult for children to focus on their studies. This will in term affect their studies and thus make them an average students. Those children with oral heath problems will also have fewer friends due to the fear of mixing in peers.

How you can point out oral health problems in children
The common symptoms that will point out oral health problems in children are:
  • Difficulty in chewing food,
  • Unwillingness to smile or laugh,
  • Difficulty in sleeping
  • Social phobia, and
  • Difficulty in learning, etc.
Kinds of oral health problems that can occur in children
The most common oral health problems in children are tooth decay. The kids in the age group of two to five are more prone to getting tooth decay. As kids of this age group eat many sweet dishes, the sugar from such foods gets converted into acids by the bacteria that lie in mouth. These bacteria then convert this sugar into acid, which affects the enamel of the teeth and thus causes tooth decays.

Public Health Dentistry

Public Health Dentistry, dental specialty concerned primarily with prevention of dental decay and of periodontal disease (disease of the tissues surrounding the teeth).

school health education
Oral Health Education

 Public health dentistry is practiced generally through governmentally sponsored programs, which are for the most part directed toward public-school children in the belief that their education in oral hygiene is the best way to reach the general public. The pattern for such programs in the past was a dentist’s annual visit to a school to lecture and to demonstrate proper tooth-brushing techniques.
