5 Cardiovascular Disease Caused by narrowed, blocked or stiffened blood vessels that prevent your heart, brain or other parts of your body from receiving enough blood. Symptoms: Chest pain, shortness of breath, pain, numbness, weakness, and coldness in your limbs. Other Causes: An unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, being overweight, and smoking. Treatments: Can use medications, but a lifestyle change is the most significant way to treat the disease.

6 Bacterial Pneumonia The result of breathing Oropharyngeal flora into the lower respiratory tract and failure of host defense mechanisms to eliminate the contaminating bacteria, which multiply in the lung and cause infection. The bacteria that causes the Pneumonia is anaerobic and dental plaque is the main source of this bacteria. Poor oral hygiene and periodontal disease can promote Oropharyngeal colonization

7 Tooth Decay Cavities Very common problem, especially in children and young adults. It is second only to the common cold. Caused from poor oral hygiene techniques and also from a poor diet. Cavities dont hurt unless they grow very large and cause tooth fractures or affect the nerves. Carbohydrates (sugars and starches) increase the risk of tooth decay. Sticky foods are also more harmful than non sticky foods because they stay on the teeth.

8 How to educate those in the communities: Good vs. bad foods for your teeth Limit the sugar intake (chocolate and candies for kids or coffee for adults). Brush teeth at least 2x per day Up to down for the top teeth Down up for bottom teeth Molars in the back are in circular motions.
