Producing temporary solutions for oral and dental health problems instead of applying to the dentist during the pandemic period may cause further deterioration of oral and dental health. Experts, who make the most appropriate referrals and treatments with conscious solution approaches to protect health in this process, draw attention to the fact that findings that are not taken seriously will cause bigger health problems in the future. Making statements on the subject, Bayındır Alsancak Dental Clinic, a subsidiary of Türkiye İş Bankası, Oral and Dental Health Specialist Dt. Tankut Tuncer underlines that tooth and gum problems can reach many organs, including the heart and joints, and cause serious diseases.

General reflexes such as using masks, obeying social distance rules, and not leaving the house unless necessary during the pandemic process have now become the behavior patterns that everyone uses. However, it remains a question mark on other issues concerning our health, especially in the procurement of dental health services. Because incomplete treatments can lead to further deterioration of oral and dental health and even to endanger general health.

IN THESE CASES, YOU MUST GO TO THE DENTIST!

Stating that the presence of teeth that can cause infection can turn into widespread infections in cases where the general resistance decreases, Türkiye İş Bankası subsidiary Bayındır Alsancak Dental Clinic Oral and Dental Health Specialist Dt. Tankut Tuncer said, “If you need emergency dental treatment, if there is spontaneous pain and bleeding, if your existing crowns and bridges have fallen, if you have wobbly implants and over-implant prostheses, you should go to the dentist without delay.”

HEALTHY EATING REDUCES THE RISK OF DISEASE

Reminding that regular and healthy nutrition is of vital importance in reducing the risk of catching diseases in this period, Oral and Dental Health Specialist Dt. Tankut Tuncer said, “If you have missing teeth, unfinished prosthetic applications, prostheses that have become incompatible, hitting and hurting, such situations adversely affect your nutritional quality. In addition, in order to preserve the comfort of life, a suitable solution should be sought for such problems.”

ORAL AND DENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS THAT ARE NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY AFFECT GENERAL HEALTH.

Stating that dental caries, which are frequently experienced, are not treated properly, it can cause increasing losses in the hard tissue of the tooth, Dt. Tankut Tuncer said, “The microorganisms that have reached the pulp of the tooth with caries can reach many organs in our whole body, especially the heart and joints, by advancing along the canal at the root of the tooth, mixing with the jawbone and then with our blood. Here, they can cause very serious diseases such as joint and heart infections. Similarly, the gums are a wonderful gateway to our body for many microorganisms. When a gingival infection is not treated, it quickly spreads to the bone under the gingiva, causing loss of teeth and jawbone tissue on the one hand, and bad breath on the other. In addition, the number and variety of micro-organisms that cause this infection are so great that it would not be an exaggeration to say that the oral environment is the most polluted part of our body. Especially in such a high-risk environment, gum diseases cause bacteria to mix with the blood constantly.

DENTAL HEALTH IS ESSENTIAL FOR HEALTH INTEGRITY

Saying that the area of ​​​​our mouth is both an internal and an external organ in terms of the functions it performs, Oral and Dental Health Specialist Dt. Tankut Tuncer said, “Our digestive function begins in the mouth and this function is only fully fulfilled when our teeth and soft tissues are healthy and complete. For this reason, the elimination of tooth deficiencies and the healthy oral soft tissues will enable other digestive functions to work better. Undoubtedly, health is a whole, and the human organism becomes complete with the complete functioning of the parts that make up the whole. Dentists will continue to produce solutions for oral and dental diseases with patience and care in the future, as they have done in the past.

USE OF TOOTH BRUSH AND DENTAL FLOOR IS IMPORTANT FOR MENTAL HEALTH

Tuncer said, “Continuing our lives without disrupting our personal and dental care will help us to resist the pandemic better, and will also enable us to come out of the pandemic stronger.
