Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Smoking causes bad breath, yellow and discoloured teeth and gum disease. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Smoking causes bad breath, yellow and discoloured teeth, and gum disease. This is because the chemicals in tobacco smoke can irritate the gums, causing inflammation and infection. Additionally, smoking reduces saliva production, which can lead to dry mouth and an increase in bacteria that cause bad breath. The nicotine and tar in cigarettes can also stain teeth, giving them a yellow or brown appearance. Overall, smoking has detrimental effects on oral health, leading to bad breath, discoloured teeth, and gum disease.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is in coma, going through oral surgery, terminally ill, and on "Nil by mouth." Oral toilet at the bedside is performed on individuals in coma who are unable to perform oral hygiene themselves. It is also done on those going through oral surgery to maintain oral health and prevent infection. Terminally ill patients may require oral toilet to ensure comfort and prevent complications. Lastly, individuals who are on "Nil by mouth" are unable to eat or drink and may require oral hygiene measures to maintain oral health.

    Oral or dental hygiene is a type of Activity of Daily Living (ADL). 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Oral or dental hygiene is considered a type of Activity of Daily Living (ADL) because it involves the regular maintenance and care of one's teeth and mouth, which is essential for overall health and well-being. This includes activities such as brushing and flossing teeth, using mouthwash, and visiting the dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. Maintaining good oral hygiene is important for preventing dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, and bad breath, as well as for promoting a healthy smile and confident self-image. Therefore, it is accurate to say that oral or dental hygiene is a type of ADL.
