Abstract

Latar Belakang: Kesehatan rongga mulut pada anak tunanetra cenderung buruk karena tidak dapat mendeteksi gejala awal inflamasi gigi melalui indra penglihatan. Pemberian materi penyuluhan kesehatan gigi dan mulut dengan Braille merupakan penyesuaian agar anak tunanetra dapat memahami kesehatan rongga mulut dengan lebih baik. Tujuan: Mengetahui peran teks Braille terhadap peningkatan pengetahuan kesehatan gigi dan mulut anak tunanetra. Metode: Literature review bersumber dari 7 jurnal yang didapat melalui database online dengan kata kunci visually impaired children OR blind children AND braille AND dental health education AND oral hygiene OR oral health knowledge. Hasil: Tingkat pengetahuan awal anak tunanetra terhadap antar siswa tunanetra adalah rendah dan/atau sedang, sehingga berpotensi dilakukan penyuluhan kesehatan gigi dan mulut. Proses membaca Braille menimbulkan reaksi pada otak anak tunanetra dan menunjukkan adanya memori verbal. Peningkatan pengetahuan kesehatan gigi dan mulut dicapai saat anak tunanetra berhasil untuk memahami penyuluhan yang diberikan dalam teks Braille. Kesimpulan: Teks Braille berperan sebagai sumber informasi pengetahuan kesehatan gigi dan mulut pada anak tunanetra. Melalui teks Braille, kemampuan memori kerja anak tunanetra menjadi lebih baik. Pamflet atau booklet Braille diharapkan dapat meningkatkan pengetahuan kesehatan gigi dan mulut anak tunanetra dengan efektif.

English Abstract

Background: Oral health in blind children is worse because they could not detect the initial symptoms of tooth inflammation through the sense of sight. Provision of oral health education material with Braille is an adjustment so that blind children can understand oral health better. Objective: To discover the role of Braille texts on increasing the oral health knowledge of blind children. Method: This literature review is sourced from 7 journals obtained from online databases with keywords “visually impaired children OR blind children AND braille AND dental health education AND oral hygiene OR oral health knowledge”. Results: Initial knowledge of blind children towards their blind peers is low or moderate, thus oral health education will be potential. Braille reading process generates a reaction in blind children’s brain that shows the presence of verbal memory. The increase of oral health knowledge is obtained when blind children could understand the education given with Braille text. Conclusion: Braille text serves as a source of information on oral health knowledge in blind children. Through Braille text, the working memory ability of blind children becomes better. Braille pamphlet or booklet are expected to be able to increase knowledge of the oral and dental health of blind children effectively.
