Dental Health And Nutrition

Dental Health And Nutrition

How should we eat for our dental health?

Foodstuffs that are considered harmful for dental health are sugary and acidic foods and substances that stick to the teeth and cannot be easily cleaned.

Recommended diet for dental health:

Sugary, sticky or acidic foods should be consumed within 3 main meals.

Between meals, foods such as apples and carrots that will clean hard teeth and massage the gums should be eaten.

If it is not possible to brush your teeth after eating sticky sugary food, you should rinse your mouth with water or drink a glass of water.

What are the foodstuffs that we can consider as dental friendly?

Protein is one of the foods that are considered tooth-friendly.

These substances, which form the basic building blocks of our body, are foods that must be consumed both during the development of teeth and after the eruption of teeth, in terms of dental health.

In addition to its high protein content, cheese is highly recommended especially after consumption of sugary foods due to its importance in dental health.

Unrefined cereals (wholegrain brown bread instead of white flour bread) should be preferred for dental health.

In addition, parsley and fish are often recommended because of the fluorine they contain.

Oral Care

Oral Care

For Oral Care;

Oral and dental health: It is important in terms of nutrition, speech and aesthetics. The person whose oral and dental health deteriorates cannot grind food sufficiently, has difficulty in making sounds while speaking, and (depending on the location of the lost teeth) there is an aesthetically unpleasant appearance. Therefore, a systematic and adequate oral and dental care is required. The most important task in oral care falls to the person himself. By allocating enough time, we can prevent many problems from occurring with systematic maintenance.

The duty of us dentists is to supervise the care performed with checks made every 6 months, to monitor and clean the overlooked – neglected – areas.

Today, preventive medicine has taken the place of curative medicine in modern countries. It is obvious how beneficial and successful Preventive – Preventive medicine will be, especially in a branch such as dentistry, which is avoided unless necessary, but which requires a lot of unpleasant and expensive treatment at the last moment.

What should be used in oral care and how?

Toothbrush: A good toothbrush head should be made of short, straight handle and medium hard nylon bristles. It would not be true under all circumstances to say that electric toothbrushes brush teeth better.
Toothpaste: Increases the effect of mechanical brushing of the toothbrush. Here is an answer to a frequently asked question. In our opinion, there is no “best” or “ideal” toothbrush. Where no special paste recommendation is required, the best toothpaste is one that makes brushing a pleasure and that you like to taste and smell. There are pastes with high fluor concentration, antibacterial agents, and tooth whitening acids.
Dental floss: It is used to clean the interdental surfaces that the toothbrush cannot fully clean.
Mouthwashes: According to the substances they contain, they prevent the activation of microorganisms in the mouth (especially in places where the brush cannot reach). They reduce the number of bacteria present in the mouth and therefore eliminate bad breath, but remember that rinsing the mouth does not dislodge the bacterial plaque. Mouthwashes are no substitute for brushing and flossing, they’re just a plus for protection and maintenance.
Interdental brushes: These are special brushes used to clean between teeth and under bridges.

How should I choose oral care products?

It may surprise you that there are so many products on the market that make it so diverse and attractive. When choosing, you should be careful to buy products that are approved and recommended by your dentist.

How long can I use a toothbrush?

It can generally be used for 6 months. You can tell that the toothbrush is broken by the separation, disintegration and bending of the bristle bundles. Hard-bristled brushes can damage your teeth and gums. Unless otherwise recommended, medium-hard brushes should be preferred.

What is the best tooth brushing technique?

For a correct brushing;

It should be known that there are 3 surfaces that need to be brushed: front, back and chewing teeth.

First of all, it should be approached to the tooth at an angle of 45 degrees and placed where the tooth meets the gingiva.

The front surfaces of the teeth should be brushed with circular movements for 10 seconds for each tooth.

It should be noted that the brush surface is 2 teeth wide.

Back surfaces should be cleaned with a one-way sweeping motion from the gingiva to the tooth.

Especially since the inner surfaces of the front teeth are narrow, the brush should be in an upright position in these areas.

The indented chewing surfaces of the posterior teeth; The brush surface should be kept parallel and cleaned with back and forth movements.

It should not be forgotten that the back surfaces of the teeth, back teeth and tongue, where there are bacterial plaque and food residues, should also be cleaned. Since only the front surfaces of the front teeth are brushed, caries mostly occur in the back areas; calculus occurs in the lower anterior region, which is brushed very little.

If a suitable technique is not used, will the teeth be damaged?

Yes. Although the teeth are covered with enamel, which is a very hard layer, they can be damaged even by a brush that you apply with the wrong technique. It can cause abrasions on both the upper part of the tooth and the layer covering the root, and recession in the gums. In this case, the teeth become more prone to decay. Brushing should be avoided with a force so strong that it can wear down the teeth and should be moved with soft movements.

What do interface cleaners do?

It is used to clean the residues between the teeth and under the gums where the toothbrush cannot reach. If you don’t have this habit, it’s not too late to start.

When using dental floss, you should pay attention to the following points:

Waxed and mint dental floss is preferred for easy use in the first use. In addition, fluoridated dental floss can be preferred.

Dental floss is used by wrapping around the index fingers of both hands and with the help of our thumb.

Pass the floss between your teeth with slow and controlled movements. wash your gums

You should avoid hard and sudden movements that will cause a break.

You can clean the interface by moving the floss up and down to draw the letter c on the tooth.

Oral Cancer

Oral Cancer

Frequency and severity of oral cancers The majority of oral cancers occur over the age of 45 and are twice as likely to occur in men than in women.

In areas where oral cancers occur, the tongue, floor of the mouth, soft vascular areas close to the tongue root, lips and gums are frequently seen. If oral cancers are not diagnosed and treated in the early period, they can spread and cause constant pain, loss of function, facial and mouth deformities that cannot be corrected after treatment, and even death.

What are the causes of oral cancers?

The exact cause of oral cancer is not known exactly. However, it has been found that factors such as tobacco products, alcohol and carcinogens in some foods and exposure to excessive sunlight increase the risk of oral cancer.

Possible symptoms of oral cancers:

White or red areas inside or outside the mouth, sensitive, irritated, raised or thickened areas in the mouth, recurrent bleeding in the mouth or throat, hoarseness in the voice or a sensation of an object that cannot be swallowed in the throat, difficulty in chewing, swallowing, difficulty in tongue and jaw movements, feeling in the tongue and mouth Oral cancer lesions are painless in the initial period, and as the cancer progresses and destroys healthy oral tissues, pain begins. Therefore, going to the dentist is extremely important.

Reducing the risk of oral cancer

Do not use tobacco such as cigarettes and pipes. Do not chew tobacco. If you drink alcohol, do not overdo it. Eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.

Visit the dentist regularly.

Perplexed Teeth

Perplexed Teeth

What are the causes of crooked teeth?

In childhood, crowding is observed in many children when milk teeth change and permanent teeth begin to appear. With the words “My child’s teeth are crooked”, parents apply to the dentist with great anxiety. The main reason for this situation is heredity. However, some measures that are not taken on time also lead to confusion. The causes of crooked teeth and the precautions to be taken are briefly as follows.

Genetically, it is the presence of factors such as incompatibility between the size of the jaw and the width of the teeth in the child or respiratory tract problems that negatively affect the development of the jaws. The factors that affect the breathing in your child’s nasal passages affect the normal growth of the upper jaw and then the lower jaw, preventing the teeth from being aligned properly. In this case, a specialist dentist should definitely intervene.
Another cause of crooked teeth is the extraction of milk teeth before their normal replacement time. Extraction of treatable primary teeth is extremely wrong with the idea that “a new one will replace it anyway”. Because these teeth protect the place of the permanent teeth that will come under them and prevent crowding. If a primary tooth is pulled out prematurely, the adjacent teeth will slide into the cavity of the extracted tooth. It closes the place where the permanent tooth will come from below. The permanent tooth tries to erupt from the gap it can find or remains embedded. In both cases, the balance of the dental system is disturbed and crowding is observed.
If the cavities seen at the interfaces of the milk teeth are not treated in time, the adjacent teeth slide into the cavity as much as the decayed and lost tooth tissue. This is another reason for confusion. For these reasons, the treatment of caries in milk teeth is extremely important.

Do crooked teeth cause only aesthetic problems?

Proper alignment of the teeth is not only important from an aesthetic point of view. Crowding in the teeth causes cavities, gingival diseases and joint pain as these areas will be difficult to clean.

Can crowding in teeth always be treated?

Crowded teeth can be treated by orthodontists at any age with different treatment methods. However, such treatments are quite expensive. For this reason, it will be the most correct method to go for the treatment of decaying milk teeth rather than extraction, and more importantly, to keep them in the mouth with good oral care.

Teeth Whitening & Aesthetics

Bleaching: It is the process of whitening the discoloration in the structure of the teeth or dark colored teeth in order to give a more aesthetic appearance.

Home Bleaching: It is the teeth whitening process applied at home by the patient himself. It is preferred for simple coloration. In order to perform this procedure, a measurement must be taken from the patient and the mouth model must be removed. A transparent and elastic cover is prepared on this model. The whitening gel given by the dentist is put into this sheath and inserted into the mouth by the patient himself. It is usually applied at night or on weekends.

The substance used in home bleaching; It is carbamide peroxide. (10 – 16 – 20 – 22-25)

Office Bleaching; It is a whitening method applied by the dentist during the examination. It can be applied to one tooth or several teeth. Teeth that are more difficult to whiten usually require intervention in the examination. With various techniques such as heat and light, you can have white teeth in an hour. It is applied in one or several sessions.

The substance used in office bleaching; is hydrogen peroxide. (15-35-38%)

Things to pay attention;

Gels used in whitening (Hydrogen/Carbamide Peroxide) can damage the gums. Therefore, it should not be carried over the gums. The overflow should be wiped with a damp cotton pad.

If home bleaching is not done regularly and in sufficient time, the desired whiteness may not be achieved.

There may be hot-cold sensitivity after whitening. This sensitivity is normal. It will be fixed after a while.

The harm of teeth whitening; It is harmless in low concentrations (10-16%) and in correct applications. It does not cause any significant change on the enamel. It can only cause temporary damage to the gums when not enough attention is paid. There may be hypersensitivity at high concentrations.

Situations where teeth whitening is not recommended;

For those who drink a lot of coffee…

In people with enamel defects, dentin layer and tooth root exposed.

Continuity period of teeth whitening;

Bleaching done to remove discolorations such as tetracycline stains usually does not return.

Bleaching for general bleaching can last for 3-4 years. This period may vary from person to person depending on their eating habits. Over time, the color may return 10-20%.

For those who use coloring foods such as cigarettes and coffee a lot, the color may return 30-40% after 1-2 years.

Bleaching should be repeated with a single daily use every 6-12 years for the purpose of reinforcing so that the color does not return.

Health Tourism

Sağlık Turizmi

Sağlık turizmi kendi ülkelerinde tedavi olmak isteyenlerin bireylerin, farklı ülkelere giderek kısa bir seyahat süresi esnasında tedavilerini yaptırma işlemidir.

Özellikle Avrupa ülkelerinde son yıllarda sağlık politikası değiştirilerek, maalesef diş tedavisi için gerekli ödemelerin artık yapılamaması veya sigorta kapsamından bu ödeneklerin çıkartılması sağlık turizmin yaygınlaşmasına neden olmuştur. Çünkü vatandaşlar bu tedavileri ekonomik olarak daha uygun koşullarda ve daha iyi şartlarda yaptırabilecekleri ülkelere yönelmeye başlamışlardır.

Ağız ve Diş Sağlığı Turizmi Nasıl Yapılır?

Öncelikle hastamızın kendi ülkesinde herhangi bir yerde panoramik röntgen çektirmesi ve bunu hekimlerimize e-mail olarak ulaştırması gerekiyor. Hekimlerimiz röntgeninizi inceleyerek size teşhis ve tedavi planlamanız konusunda ilk fiziki muayenede kesinlik kazandıracak bir tedavi planı hazırlar. Bu planla birlikte size mali tablo ve ortalama tedavi süresi, hakkında da bilgi verir.

Tedaviniz için en uygun tedavi planı, tüm alternatiflerle birlikte sunulur. Telefon görüşmesi veya e-mail yoluyla en uygun olana karar verilir ve randevu tarihi belirlenir. Hekimlerimiz sizin Türkiye’de kalma sürenize göre sizi tedavi hakkında yönlendirebilir.

Örneğin implant uygulaması için, implantın çene kemiğine yerleştirilmesini takiben bir iyileşme süreci gerekmektedir. Bu nedenle 2-3 ay beklenmekte, ardından üst yapının yapımına geçimliktedir. Türkiye’de kalacağınız toplam süre 1 hafta olmasına karşın hastanız bu bekleme sürecini kendi ülkesinde geçirmektedir.

Böylece Türkiye’deki bu tedavi, konaklama, uçuş ve sağlık işlemleri dahil olmak üzere maliyet olarak Avrupa ülkelerine nazaran çok daha uygun yapılabilmektedir.

Her bireyin ağız yapısı farklı olduğu için sizlere şu anda mali tutarlar ve süre hakkında bilgi veremiyoruz. Çünkü DENTHOUSE ‘da bu alternatifler sunularak size en uygun olan sizin de fikriniz alınarak seçilir. DENTHOUSE’da planlanan tedavi en ince ayrıntısına kadar size anlatılır. Onay verdiğiniz tedavi en özenli şekilde yapılır.
