‘A smile is the prettiest thing you`ll ever wear’.
Today we had Keep Smiling Day. Dr. Atul Indurkhya, a dentist came online to our class. He gave us important information on how to take care of our teeth. We came to know how to brush our teeth correctly and take care of them. We should brush our teeth after breakfast, lunch and dinner. We should use a Junior toothbrush, mouth wash, toothpaste and a tongue cleaner. We should change our toothbrush after three to four months, never use a toothpick in our mouth and go for a dental check up every six months. We should not swallow the toothpaste after brushing as all the germs from our mouth will enter our belly and upset it. After drinking milk, we should at least rinse our mouth. We should avoid junk food and realize that our milk teeth are also important so we must take care of them.

Today we celebrated Keep Smiling Day in our online class through Google meet. Our dear class teacher Mrs. Shahnaaz introduced us to a dentist Dr. Atul Indurkhya after prayers. The doctor explained to us beautifully with a video and a presentation on how teeth are important in the overall personality and why dental checkups are necessary. It was fun to learn how cavities are formed through a very easy explanation. When we eat something and don’t rinse our mouth, germs get stuck in our teeth and form acid which in turn form cavities in the teeth. It’s better to visit a dentist every six months so that small cavities if formed can be treated at that point of time. If you delay the dental visit it might cause a big and long dental treatment which will be painful. It’s very important to select a good tooth brush, follow the correct technique of brushing, changing our toothbrush every three months, flossing, using a tongue cleaner and eating healthy food for better oral hygiene. Dr. Atul Indurkhya also interacted with all the kids where we got an opportunity to ask queries about dental health. He also motivated us to keep good oral hygiene by rinsing our mouth with water after tiffin breaks in school by sharing an example of Japan where the kids follow a very disciplined schedule of good oral care by brushing their teeth in school after lunch break. I am personally impressed by the way this whole concept was taught to us today and now I will always follow the five golden rules that doctor shared online with us:
1)BRUSH AFTER DINNER
2)BRUSH IN THE MORNING AFTER MILK
4)VISIT A DENTIST REGULARLY EVERY SIX MONTHS
5)AVOID JUNK FOOD
Eating more fibrous food like fruits and vegetables will not form many cavities provided we always rinse and brush after these meals. But those who eat a lot of junk food like cookies, chocolates, wafers and pastries will have more cavities and dental issues. At the age of 8 and 9 years we have both milk teeth as well as permanent teeth so we need to take extra care of them as bad milk teeth can create problems for permanent teeth. This day ended with an activity where we all submitted a handmade paper brush with a message. Thank you so much to our primary section, our respected Head Teacher, our dear Shahnaaz teacher and most importantly Dr. Atul Indurkhya for organizing this first of its kind online dentist’s visit.

I learnt many things in today’s activity of Keep Smiling day.
The dentist’s message is very useful to us to protect our teeth lifelong.
We should brush our teeth twice a day and also brush after eating chocolates or junk food. If there is any problem with our teeth we need to take doctor’s advice immediately. If we follow the doctor’s advice, our teeth will be protected from damage.

I learnt about the importance of brushing my teeth on ‘Keep Smiling Day’. Brushing one’s teeth twice a day is very important to ensure our teeth stay healthy, white and shiny. I think white teeth helps us smile wider and spread joy to others. A new thing I learnt today was flossing. I have not done flossing so far but I realise it is also very important now. I will ask my mom to help me with it once a week as told. This was a very informative session as always. Thank you. — Kiaan Shetye III D

Today, I have learnt that we should brush our teeth daily so that they remain strong and clean. If we do not do so, we might get cavities. Hence, we should brush our teeth twice a day for keeping them clean and germ free. We must not consume too much of sweets and instead eat healthy food. We must also visit a dentist in case we have a toothache. Thank you.

In today’s online class we observed Keep Smiling Day. We started our class with a beautiful smile 😁 and all excitement as we were going to make a toothbrush in the craft activity. There was a good and friendly Dentist to explain us lots of important things. The video shown helped us learn new things which is of use to us in our day to day lives. They showed us slides of the right method of brushing, flossing, putting toothpaste correctly and required amount of toothpaste needed on the brush for daily brushing of our teeth. They told us to brush thrice a day, clean the tongue daily, importance of rinsing mouth regularly, drink more water, use mouthwash, avoid sweets and snacks, have a healthy diet, have more of calcium n vitamins in our diet. I learnt that I should also brush my teeth after I have milk and after I have chocolates and cakes. We were advised to have snacks like biscuits, wafers, chocolates, cakes etc. once a week only. We must visit our Dentist every six months to rule out our tooth decay, cavity problems and for a routine and better oral hygiene. We can have gum problems if we use a toothpick so we should learn to floss in between the teeth regularly so that food particles don’t get stuck in between. We must use good fluoride toothpaste which is healthy for our teeth. If we neglect good oral hygiene we can have a tooth decay and bad breath also. The dentist also explained to us that we should not suck the thumb and about milk teeth and permanent teeth. 🦷 Healthy teeth helps us to smile better and also in good speech. I made a beautiful red toothbrush and have written tips for healthy teeth and will show it to my parents and grandparents at home.

On 9th November 2020, Don Bosco High School celebrated “Keep Smiling Day”. The session was to create awareness about how to maintain a healthy mouth and strong teeth.
Our class teacher Miss Nerissa explained us that our teeth have an important role to play in our lives. They help us chew and digest food, they help us to talk and speak clearly. Our teacher also showed us a song related to how we need to brush our teeth, followed by a video in which we got detailed information about how to brush our teeth properly and keep it strong and healthy.
The most surprising part of the event was that we had Dr. Atul Indurkhya with us in the online session and he shared with us his presentation related to how we should take proper care of our teeth and how junk food affects our teeth. He shared with us about the things we should use to take care of our teeth like proper toothbrush, paste, dental floss, mouth wash and we should brush correctly and never use toothpicks.
We also got to know that regular exercise and healthy food is most important for maintaining healthy mouth. I also learnt that we should brush our teeth after breakfast, lunch and dinner. Along with this we also need to go for regular dental check-ups so that we can avoid dental problems in future. And finally he ended his presentation with a slide which said Keep Smiling!
The event was followed with a creative activity, where we all made a tooth brush using paper and ice cream stick and clicked our pictures posing with our tooth brush which was fun.
The overall event was not only interesting and new for us but also had a motive behind it that we should take proper care of our teeth.And one thing I learnt from the session was “Healthy mouth and strong teeth with a smile raises your face value”Special thanks to Head teacher Ms Griselda, our class teacher Miss Nerissa, our computer teacher Ms Anita and Dr. Atul Indurkhya for making this session informative and effective.
