Free dental checkup and awareness camp was conducted
A free dental checkup and awareness camp was conducted by Baskar Dental Foundation, T Nagar for the factory workers of Sri Krishna Sweets in Nemam.
A team of Senior Specialist Dental Surgeons and para-medical staff carried out a comprehensive dental checkup, BP & pulse checkup. About 80 inmates were benefitted from the camp. The camp was initiated with dental awareness brochures educating the workers about common dental ailments, especially stressing on tooth decay and gum diseases and measures to prevent from them.
The participants were highlighted about the eating patterns and food choices which cause tooth decay. The dental surgeons also highlighted about the possible formation of harmful acid which develops as plaque when bacteria get in contact with sugar in the mouth which ultimately results in tooth decay.
They were also given opportunity to interact with the dental surgeons to enquire and gain knowledge concerning oral diseases. On completion of the dental checkup each person was given a Patient Card, a report summary of the diagnosed problem and the recommended dental treatment plan.
