Incomplete oral and dental treatment jeopardizes overall health
Oral and Dental Health Specialist Dt. Tankut Tuncer said, “The microorganisms that have reached the pulp of the tooth with the decay can reach the jawbone through the canal located in the root of the tooth and then mix into our blood and reach many organs in our body, especially the heart and joints. Here they can cause very serious diseases such as joint and heart infections. " used expressions.
According to the statement of Bayındır Health Group, general reflexes such as wearing masks during the pandemic process, obeying social distance rules, and not leaving the house unless necessary have now become the forms of behavior that everyone applies. However, the level of awareness to be in other issues concerning our health, especially in the procurement of dental health services, remains a question mark in mind. Dentists emphasize the importance of completing ongoing treatments even though we are in the pandemic period. Because incomplete treatments can cause further deterioration of oral and dental health and even endanger general health.
Tuncer, whose views are included in the statement, stated that the presence of teeth that can cause infection can turn into common infections in cases where general resistance decreases.

Reminding that regular and healthy nutrition is of vital importance in terms of reducing the risk of developing diseases during this period, Tuncer said, “If you have missing teeth, unfinished prosthetic applications, if you have no longer compatible, hitting and painful prostheses, such situations negatively affect your nutrition quality. In addition, a suitable solution should be sought for such problems in order to protect the comfort of life. " found the evaluation.
- "Tooth decay causes increasing losses in the hard tissue of the tooth"
Tuncer noted that tooth decays, which are frequently experienced, can cause increasing losses in the hard tissue of the tooth if it is not treated properly, “Microorganisms that have reached the pulp of the tooth with decay progress along the canal located in the root of the tooth and mix into the jawbone and from there to our blood, the heart and joints in our body. They can reach many of our organs. Here they can cause very serious diseases such as joint and heart infections. " made the explanation.
Underlining that gums are also a great entrance gate to the body for many microorganisms, Tuncer said, “When a gum infection is not treated, it quickly spreads to the bone under the gum, causing the loss of our teeth and jawbone tissue on the one hand, and bad breath on the other. causes. In addition, the number and types of microorganisms that cause this infection are so many that it is definitely not an exaggeration to say that the mouth environment is the most polluted part of our body. In such a high-risk environment, especially gum diseases cause bacteria to enter the blood constantly. " commented
