Dental Public Health Education And Workforce

Dental Public Health Education And Workforce

In the recent years, dental problems have been on a mercurial rise. Lack of proper knowledge and awareness (especially in the rural areas) makes the situation even worse. Dental problems can affect anyone, irrespective of their age and sex. Proper measures should be taken to deal with the problem effectively. People should be educated and made aware of the importance of practicing a good oral hygiene and dental care. In this regard, the Dental Public Health Education becomes very important.

As the name suggests, the dental public health work towards educating the people (in rural as well as urban areas) about oral and dental hygiene. It comes up with various campaigns, health camps and awareness programs (mostly government funded) to help people take care of their and their loved one's dental health. The aim of the dental public health work is to reach out to and, in the process, extend help to a wider mass.

In some of the campaigns, the dentists reach out to the children (in schools and colleges) and explain them the importance of a good dental health and the healthy dental practices they need to follow. Few of the initiatives and awareness programs have indeed been of great help to people.

The Dental Public health workers and specialists work on the competencies as directed by the Indian Dental Association, some of which are being mentioned below:

  1. Organizing and managing oral health campaigns and programs.
  2. Extensive research to deal with oral health problems of the public.
  3. Communicate with people regarding the various dental and oral health problems
  4. Measure the status of oral health through effective surveillance systems.
  5. Address individual (as well as population) oral health issues effectively.
  6. Promote and protect public oral health through public health regulations, policy, and legislation.

The Dental public health is thus, a non-clinical speciality, whereby trained and experienced workers works effortlessly to improve the oral health of communities rather than individuals. It is a broader term that touches upon the different aspects of dental and oral health (causes, symptoms, treatment, prevention, and precaution).

Advantages of the Dental Public Health Education:

The dental public health education and workforce are indeed a blessing that comes with a lot of oral health benefits:

  1. The dental public health (DPH) has helped create awareness, thereby lowering the incidences of tooth decay and plaque formation greatly.
  2. It has brought about a remarkable improvement in the overall health of the people.
  3. The DPH has successfully held campaigns and oral health camps in areas that have been left unattended and neglected for long.
  4. Campaigns organized in schools help children and their families to practice healthy oral hygiene.
  5. The action is at a community level so that maximum people can benefit from the programs and campaigns. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dentist.

Imidiatily stop the habit (take some nicotine gums). It can be cured but for this you should take first step and visit nearest Dentist for further treatment. Because we can't prescribe any medicine without examination. Although Burning sensation, reduce mouth opening all these are sign of OSMF (Oral submucous fibrosis) but we can confirm this only after examining.

Mere muh ka swad bigad gya hai pet me hamesha gas bana rhta hai aur morning me pesab gahra pila hota hai phir din me pani pine ke bad pesab normal rehta hai ye problem 3 months se hai pls help me.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Although having gas is common, it can be extremely uncomfortable and embarrassing at times. Gas is eliminated either by burping (belching) or passing it through the rectum (flatulence). Half to two liters is produced normally in adults and may pass up to 14 times a day on an average. But the condition can be really bad for some individuals -one study noted a person who expelled gas 140 times daily, with 70 passages in a period of just four hours. Although every one has gas, but why do some suffer from it more than others? The answer lies either in their biological conditions of their gastro-intestinal tract or in their eating habits. The Gas usually comes from two sources – (a) the air that is swallowed in with food while eating, (b) as a part of normal breakdown of certain undigested foods by harmless bacteria naturally present in the large intestine. Homeopathy can be a great help for those who suffer from this ?too much gas ?problem. Homeopathic medicines Carbo Veg, Lycopodium, China and Nux Vomica lead the homeopathic table in treating this problem. A constitutional homoeopathic treatment will cure you permanently You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

Surprise! Garlic CURES Bad Breath.

Surprise! Garlic CURES Bad Breath.
How Garlic CURES Bad Breath

It’s a little known fact that Garlic is very effective when it comes to battling bad breath. Garlic is a natural cleanser and an antibiotic. It helps the body to push out the decaying food particles stuck to the intestinal walls while also killing the harmful bacterium present therein. Food stuck in your gut generally makes your breath smell foul. It’s your body’s way of telling you to clean your stomach.

To get rid of bad breath, simply mince 3-5 cloves of Garlic and swallow with a small glass of milk. You can also add a pinch of parsley to the mix for added effectiveness.
