You do not have to brush all of your teeth, only the teeth you want to keep!



At the end of this lesson students will be able to:

- Identify the five parts of the tooth (crown, roots, enamel, dentin, pulp).

- List at least three snacks that are healthy (raw vegetables, fruit, cheese).

- Explain what is a cavity (cavities are caused by sugars left on teeth after meals or snacks; bacteria feast on these sugars and form acid as a by-product; this acid eats into the tooth enamel, eventually creating a cavity). 

- Explain how we can prevent cavities from forming (brushing our teeth as soon as possible after eating and limiting between-meal snacks).

- In addition:

Children will wash their hands and tell us how many teeth they have, followed by groups of children role playing a visit to the dentist.
