Due to 22 November Dentists’ Day and Oral and Dental Health Week, PeriodontologistDr.Med.Dent. Lacin Berber, drew attention to the importance of dental and oral health xBerber; “The gums form the infrastructure of the mouth and teeth. Although tooth and gum diseases are among the most important health problems experienced in our country and in the world, the necessary importance is not given enough. However, the deterioration of oral and dental health affects other organs in the body. It shows that those who have gum diseases are more likely to develop cancer of the head, neck, lung, kidney, pancreas and blood.’ said.
PeriodontologistDr.Med.Dent. Laçin Berber, ” Those with gum disease have an increased risk of developing certain types of cancer.saying ” It was found that those with gum disease had an average 14 percent higher risk of developing certain types of cancer. Studies have stated that gum diseases show that the immune system is weak, and that a weak immune system increases the risk of cancer. Berber, who gave information on the subject, said, “For the last 20 years, researches examining the relationship between advanced gingival diseases and systemic diseases have been carried out, and although it is not certain, periodontal infections can cause diabetes, stroke, cardiovascular diseases, dementia, Alzheimer’s, lung diseases, some cancer types, kidney diseases, erectile dysfunction. and scientific evidence was found to be an independent risk factor for low birth weight births. The fact that these diseases are more common among the elderly shows that the relationship between oral diseases and systemic chronic diseases should be better understood. A healthy life passes through healthy teeth. Early diagnosis and treatment of dental and gum diseases is of great importance at this point.
Bleeding in the gums, a sign of disease!
Periodontologist (Gum Diseases and Surgery Specialist) Dr.Med.Dent. Laçin Berber drew attention to the gingival diseases, which affect almost everyone after the age of 30, are the most important cause of tooth loss, which are extremely insidious, and said, “Gum diseases are infectious diseases that affect the gums and the tissues that support the teeth. Research shows that the majority of tooth loss is caused by gingival diseases. The layer defined as ‘microbial dental plaque’ (MDP), which contains millions of bacteria stuck to the surfaces in the mouth, is the main cause of gingival diseases. Research to date shows that more than 500 different types of bacteria can be found in MDP. These bacteria can directly or indirectly affect the body’s defense mechanism and cause destruction in the bone tissue that supports the gums and teeth. Teeth with weakened bone tissue fall out by shaking, even if they are solid. Gum diseases usually do not show any symptoms until they reach advanced stages. The first symptom is bleeding. If there is spontaneous bleeding, the problem may have progressed.
To address the findings in untreated and advanced gingival disease,
A persistent bad odor in the mouth
Bleeding gums while brushing
Swelling, redness and tenderness in the gums
· Recessions in the gums
Swaying of the teeth, openings between the teeth
Inflammation between the tooth and gingiva
“Differences in the contact of the teeth during biting,” he said.
The most important task of periodontologists is to protect the health of the gums and to ensure that the teeth stay in the mouth for many years. If a problem occurs in the teeth and periodontal tissue despite the preventive measures, the periodontal tissue should be freed from the disease as the first treatment. All restorative applications should be established on a non-inflammatory and periodontally healthy foundation. By taking care of your gum health, you will gain healthy life years with your loved ones.
