The pupils in Junior and Senior Infants have recently completed The Mighty Mouth Schools Programme as part of our SPHE. We have been learning about taking care of our teeth and the importance of oral health. The programme focused on the importance of good dental care with particular emphasis on the essential role of tooth-friendly foods and drinks, and of supervised regular tooth brushing with fluoride toothpaste.
We learned how to brush our teeth properly. We should use a pea sized amount of toothpaste and brush twice a day for 3 minutes.
