Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The ADA strongly recommends the use of a mouthguard in any sport or activity where collision or contact is likely, - during both games and training 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The ADA (American Dental Association) strongly recommends the use of a mouthguard in any sport or activity where collision or contact is likely, including both games and training. This is because mouthguards help protect the teeth, gums, lips, and tongue from injuries that can occur due to impact or contact. By wearing a mouthguard, individuals can reduce the risk of dental injuries and potentially prevent costly dental treatments. Therefore, it is important to follow the ADA's recommendation and use a mouthguard during sports or activities with a high risk of collision or contact.

  • 2. 

    Mouthguards are not required during sport training?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Mouthguards are required during sport training to protect the teeth and mouth from potential injuries caused by impacts or collisions. Wearing a mouthguard helps to absorb and distribute the force, reducing the risk of dental injuries such as broken teeth, lip lacerations, or jaw fractures. It is recommended by dental professionals and sports organizations to wear mouthguards during both practice sessions and actual games or matches to ensure the safety and well-being of athletes. Therefore, the statement "Mouthguards are not required during sport training" is false.

  • 3. 

    Tick all of the following damage that may occur without a mouthguard?

    • A.

      Cracked Tooth

    • B.

      Knocked-out Tooth

    • C.

      Cut Lips

    • D.

      Damage To The Tongue

    • E.

      A Broken Jaw

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Cracked Tooth
    B. Knocked-out Tooth
    C. Cut Lips
    D. Damage To The Tongue
    E. A Broken Jaw
    Explanation
    Without a mouthguard, the teeth are vulnerable to impact and pressure, which can result in a cracked tooth or a knocked-out tooth. Additionally, the lips can easily get cut due to accidental biting or impact during physical activities. The tongue is also at risk of getting injured without a mouthguard, as it may get caught between the teeth during impact. Furthermore, a broken jaw is another potential damage that can occur without the protection of a mouthguard, as it helps absorb and distribute the force of impact, reducing the risk of jaw fractures.

  • 4. 

    Custom-fitted mouthguards are recommended, and will never need to be replaced.

    • A.

      Both statements are true

    • B.

      Both statements are false

    • C.

      The first sentence is true, the second sentence is false

    • D.

      The first sentence is false, the second sentence is true

    Correct Answer
    C. The first sentence is true, the second sentence is false
    Explanation
    Custom-fitted mouthguards are recommended because they offer a better fit and protection compared to generic mouthguards. However, it is not true that custom-fitted mouthguards will never need to be replaced. Over time, mouthguards can wear out or become damaged, and it is important to replace them regularly to ensure proper protection. Therefore, the first sentence is true, but the second sentence is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    It is recommended not to replace a primary tooth that has been knocked out.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is recommended not to replace a primary tooth that has been knocked out because primary teeth are eventually replaced by permanent teeth. Replacing a knocked-out primary tooth may cause damage to the underlying permanent tooth or interfere with its eruption. It is best to allow the natural process of tooth eruption to occur.

    • B.

      It is easy to identify patients who required special considerations

    • C.

      It is important to modify dental treatments according to the patient's needs

    • D.

      The dental assistant has a valuable role in managing patient's with special needs

    Correct Answer
    B. It is easy to identify patients who required special considerations
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "It is easy to identify patients who required special considerations." This statement is incorrect because it is not always easy to identify patients who require special considerations. Special needs patients may have hidden or undiagnosed conditions that require special attention, and it is the responsibility of the dental team to identify these challenges.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true because aging is a natural process that occurs in all living organisms over time. It involves various physical, physiological, and psychological changes that are irreversible. These changes can affect different aspects of an individual's life, such as physical appearance, cognitive abilities, and overall health. Aging is a universal phenomenon that everyone experiences, making the statement accurate.

    • A.

      Functionally independent older adults

    • B.

      Frail older adults

    • C.

      Dependent older adults

    Correct Answer
    A. Functionally independent older adults

  • 9. 

    Identify the stages of ageing from the statement below: Beginning to have multiple health problems, and more of them have fixed and removable prostheses

    • A.

      Functionally independent older adults

    • B.

      Frail older adults

    • C.

      Dependent older adults

    Correct Answer
    B. Frail older adults
    Explanation
    The statement describes individuals who are beginning to have multiple health problems and are using fixed and removable prostheses. This suggests that they are experiencing a decline in their physical function and overall health. This aligns with the characteristics of frail older adults, who typically have decreased strength, endurance, and mobility. Therefore, the correct answer is frail older adults.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Tick the common oral health conditions of the ageing

    • A.

      Xerostomia

    • B.

      Recurrent decay

    • C.

      Dark and brittle teeth

    • D.

      Loss of the alveolar ridge

    • E.

      Mental Retardation

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Xerostomia
    B. Recurrent decay
    C. Dark and brittle teeth
    D. Loss of the alveolar ridge
    Explanation
    As people age, they may experience various oral health conditions. Xerostomia, or dry mouth, is a common condition among the elderly, which can lead to discomfort and difficulty in speaking and eating. Recurrent decay refers to the repeated occurrence of tooth decay, which can be more prevalent in older individuals due to factors such as medication use and decreased oral hygiene. Dark and brittle teeth can also be a result of aging, as tooth enamel naturally wears down over time. Loss of the alveolar ridge, the bone that supports the teeth, is another common oral health condition in the elderly, often resulting in loose or missing teeth. Mental retardation, however, is not related to the aging process and is not considered a common oral health condition.

      Cerebral Palsy

    • B.

      Down Syndrome

    • C.

      Autism

    • D.

      Visually impaired

    Correct Answer
    D. Visually impaired

Restroom facilities should be designed with accessibility in mind, including grab bars, raised toilet seats, and spacious layouts. The floor surface should be even, slip-resistant, and free from obstacles. Additionally, the office should allow for wheelchair transfer or in-wheelchair treatment, providing adequate space and equipment for individuals with mobility limitations.

    All of the following are recommended for pregnant dental patients, except?

    • A.

      Eat protein-rich foods

    • B.

      Eat sweets and cakes

    • C.

      Eat good sources of calcium

    • D.

      Drink lots of tap water

    Correct Answer
    B. Eat sweets and cakes
    Explanation
    Pregnant dental patients are advised to eat protein-rich foods, as they provide essential nutrients for both the mother and the developing baby. They are also recommended to consume good sources of calcium to support the development of the baby's teeth and bones. Drinking lots of tap water helps in maintaining good oral hygiene and preventing dental issues. However, eating sweets and cakes is not recommended as they can contribute to tooth decay and other dental problems.

    Breastfeeding is recommended for infants oral health?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Breastfeeding is recommended for infants' oral health because it provides numerous benefits. Breast milk contains antibodies that help protect the baby from infections and diseases, including those that can affect oral health. It also promotes proper jaw and tooth development, as the baby needs to use their tongue and facial muscles differently compared to bottle feeding. Breastfeeding also reduces the risk of baby bottle tooth decay, a condition that occurs when a baby's teeth are frequently exposed to sugary liquids. Additionally, breastfeeding helps establish a healthy oral microbiome, which can contribute to overall oral health.

    It is recommended for young children to rinse out their mouths after brushing?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not recommended for young children to rinse out their mouths after brushing. This is because rinsing with water immediately after brushing can wash away the fluoride from the toothpaste, which is important for protecting the teeth against cavities. It is better for children to spit out the excess toothpaste after brushing, but not rinse with water. This allows the fluoride to remain on the teeth and provide continued protection.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    A patient who has no teeth does not need to brush. A patient who has no teeth does not need to visit a dentist.

    • A.

      Both statements are true

      Both statements are false

    • C.

      The first statement is true, the second statement is false

    • D.

      The first statement is false, the second statement is true

    Correct Answer
    B. Both statements are false
    Explanation
    Both statements are false because even if a patient has no teeth, they still need to brush their gums and tongue to maintain oral hygiene. Additionally, regular visits to the dentist are necessary for overall oral health, as dentists can identify and address any potential issues or provide guidance on denture care.
