Report of Five Years of Mouth Hygiene in the Public Schools of Bridgeport, Conn, 1920 free pdf Excerpt from Report of Five Years of Mouth Hygiene in the Public Schools of Bridgeport, Conn, 1920 "Let us examine the average boy of ten years of age and see what we find. Face, ears and nose unclean, hair unkempt, hands grimy and finger-nails dirty. Shoes splashed with dry or wet mud, clothes soiled, and an odor percolating through the atmosphere to excite suspicion that his little body has not been washed for some time. His eyesight may be good and yet it may be defective. If his face is washed it may disclose a color that is lacking in the bloom that a boy of ten should have. "If otherwise his body appears normal we ask him to open his mouth.If his external appearance troubles us, his internal appearance would shock us. Here we find teeth covered with green stain- temporary and permanent teeth badly decayed, possibly fistulas on the gum surface showing an outlet for pus from an abscessed tooth or teeth, and decomposing food around and between the teeth. Why examine the child any further? Here at the gateway of the system is a source of infection and poison that would contaminate every mouthful of food taken into his body. With decomposition instead of digestion taking place in the alimentary tract, it is no wonder that the child suffers from an auto-intoxication which produces eye-strain, anaemia, malaise, constipation, headaches, fevers and many other ailments. "Such a mouth is an ideal breeding ground for germ life, and a child with such a mouth is far more susceptible to infectious diseases than one whose teeth are sound and kept free from food debris. Suppose at the entrance of our cities such a rank condition existed. How long would it be before disease and sickness would be swept in among the inhabitants? This boy described is but duplicated in the girl of ten. Decayed teeth constitute the most prevalent disease known. It is difficult to find two children out of one hundred with perfectly sound sets of teeth. In a thorough dental examination of five hundred and fifty school children in the town of Stratford, Connecticut, but one child was found to have a set of teeth free from decay. "Look over the reports of the medical inspectors in the public schools who have made but a glancing examination of the mouths, and you will find that decayed teeth outrank all other physical defects combined. "Therefore we must deduce from our analysis of school hygiene that the most conspicuous defect of the child is the unsanitary condition of his mouth. Like a pig pen or garbage drain, slowly seeping its poison into the brook, which, flowing into the reservoir, contaminates the water supply to a city, so do the products of abscessed and decayed teeth with decomposing food slowly but surely poison the human system.
