Summit students encouraged to smile
Mountain View Dentistry rooted out for Summit Academy’s 3-4 graders the basics of grinder anatomy.
From their one-day practicum, students departed with newly discovered dental data. From facts about clay moldsfor creating dental impressions to gum and jaw surgery (orthognathics), the dental crew captivated theirpalpating attentions. Students arrived at new conclusions about occulsions (bites): perfect, over, and under, and cross. The doctors shared techniques applied for growing jaws, all with the goal of advancing ‘philorthodontics’, the love of straight teeth. Lotions that identify the plethora of germ and bacterial growth within the mouth shocked not a few of the students.
“X-rays, they use a lot of x-rays” says teacher, Miss Brooke Haeling. The students were especially surprised to learn how children can be more cooperative than adults in the dental domain.
The field trip opened students’ eyes. Never more shall teeth remain un-brushed, flossing go neglected and healthy foods be shunned. Many promised to brush their teeth with increased motion and vigor. Caring for the mouth shall be a life-time exercise.
The students also gleaned how tooth care is related to the meaning of life.“God gave teeth as a way of enhancing humanity’s beauty, as well as eating various foods,” said Miss Brooke.
Upholding nutritious habits is one small smile for ourselves, and one giant smile for the rest of us.
