Taking care of Oral and Dental Health is an important investment for our general health needs. Oral and Dental Health is very important for both body health and a beautiful appearance.
Oral and dental care should be done regularly and the dentist should be examined at least twice a year. Thus, the problems that may occur can be controlled with early diagnosis, and tooth and gum disorders can be intervened in advance. Do not forget that prevention is as important as treatment.
One of the negative effects of the pandemic process in our country was the disruption and postponement of oral and dental health treatments. Physicians, healthcare professionals and patients alike choose to avoid treatment, considering the possibility of encountering the virus, and putting their oral and dental health at risk by applying hearsay and unfounded methods on their own.
Even a simple filling that is not made can result in root canal treatment or tooth loss. Any possible inflammation caused by the untreated treatment may interfere with the blood and wake you up at night, reducing your body resistance by causing fatigue. In short, the treatment you postponed to protect against the virus may be bringing you closer to the virus by weakening your immune system.
Treatments that you postpone may cause your body resistance to decrease. In order to avoid such a situation, dental treatments should be completed and should not hesitate to go to the dentist in case of any complaint.
In the pre-pandemic period, transactions that are already carried out in a sterile environment can be carried out by taking more stringent measures during the pandemic process. After the patients are finished, examination rooms can be fogged with a special device using hypochlorous acid and made ready for the next patient.
In addition, dental instruments can be made suitable for reuse with the help of an autoclave providing sterilization using high temperature. The use of FFP2 and even FFP3 masks, if possible, and also wearing a visor during the treatment will prevent possible infection transfer between the patient and the patient.
In this process, it is one of the applications that can be beneficial to work with the appointment system of oral and dental health centre in order to avoid density and crowd.
We inform you that these precautions are applied seriously in our clinic and these practices are applied in treatment preferences, and we recommend that you pay attention to the fact that these precautions are applied in the clinic you will go for treatment.
