Producing discontinuous tests instead of applying to the dentist for oral and dental health problems during the pandemic period may cause further deterioration of oral and dental health. In this process, the experts, who make the most appropriate referrals and treatments with conscious analysis approaches for maintaining health, draw attention to the fact that findings that are not taken seriously will cause bigger health problems in the future. Making statements about this matter, 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 important diseases.
General reflexes, such as using a mask during the pandemic process, complying with the rules of social break, and not leaving the house unless necessary, have now become the forms of behavior that everyone follows. However, in other issues concerning our health, especially in the purchase of dental health services, the question mark remains as a question mark. 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 DENTAL!
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 the pain and bleeding that has already occurred, 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 a regular and healthy diet in this period is of vital importance in reducing the risk of catching diseases, 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 will negatively 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, they 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 important diseases such as joint and heart infections. For example, the gums are an extraordinary 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 dirtiest part of our body. Especially in such a high-risk environment, gum diseases always cause bacteria to mix with the blood.
DENTAL HEALTH IS A CONDITION FOR HEALTH INTEGRITY
Oral and Dental Health Specialist Dt. Tankut Tuncer said, “Our digestive function starts 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 health of the oral soft tissues will ensure that other digestive functions work more smoothly. Undoubtedly, health is a whole and the human organism becomes complete with the complete work of the modules that make up the whole. Dentists will continue to produce cures for oral and dental diseases with patience and care in the future, as in the past, in their own fields.
USE OF TOOTH BRUSH AND flossing is IMPORTANT FOR MENTAL HEALTH
Stating that the time we spend at home has increased due to the pandemic, and this situation causes a decrease in the care we show to ourselves and we become depressed, Dt. 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. As dentists, our offer is not to interrupt your personal oral and dental health care and to use a toothbrush and dental floss systematically.
WE CONSIDER RISK AND RESPONSIBILITY STABILITY IN THE PANDEMIC PERIOD
Oral and Dental Health Specialist Dt. Tankut Tuncer also said the following for those who are worried about going to the dentist during the pandemic: “Thanks to our academic background, professional experience, meticulously supplied equipment, high-quality clinical rules and algorithms that are always updated by the Ministry of Health, we continue to provide dental health services with faith and devotion. . Because we perceive health as a whole and in order to protect this whole, we give the necessary reinforcement to the oral and dental health of the society by considering the risk and responsibility stability during the pandemic period.”
