The indigenous population served by the Special Indigenous Sanitary District (DSEI) Guamá-Tocantins, who lives in villages located in eastern Pará and northern Tocantins, received on Friday (10) Mobile Dental Units two (UOMs). With this initiative, more than seven thousand Indians will benefit from vehicles that offer dental clinical treatment, and promotion and oral health prevention. Each unit will hold up to 350 calls per month.

We invested £ 3.85 million by the Union in the acquisition of vehicles and equipment. Now, the Smiling Brazil Indigenous villages leads to the same treatment options available in the city. Before the Indians had to leave the village to the pole base or the next county to restore a tooth. Now, teams will be oral health in the indigenous area with all equipment and will remain the period necessary to meet all the dental needs of that community, said Secretary of Special Indigenous Health, Antonio Alves de Souza. Currently, 299 health professionals working in the region.

Each UOM has a dental office equipped with dental chair, pointed kit (motor), the dentist's chair (owl), reflector, amalgamator and the materials that make the preparation of the products used in the restoration of teeth (curing), x-ray and autoclave for sterilization of dental equipment. The units also come with air conditioning, sink, water tanks, lockers for storage of material and power generator.

In addition, it invested U.S. $ 25,600 for the purchase of equipment such as clinical mirror 2210, surgical clamps, forceps, scissors and surgical clinics, among others.

These investments are part of the implementation strategy of the Indian Smiling Brazil program, the Ministry of Health, coordinated by the Special Indigenous Health (Sheshai). The program has aimed to expand the service and improve the oral health of Brazil's indigenous population.
