ORAL AND DENTAL HEALTH
ORAL AND DENTAL HEALTH
Oral and dental health issues and aesthetic problems caused by teeth may have a significant effect on people's lives. Oral and dental health issues can also have an effect on general health. It is therefore important to focus on well-equipped health institutions and skilled dentists with expertise in the field of oral and dental health.
Applications for preventive dentistry
Protective dentistry applications are commonly used for the protection of oral and dental health. In addition to the lack of adequate hygienic treatment for several years, the failure to take the requisite preventive steps often plays an important role in the degradation of oral and dental health. For this reason, with today's preventive dentistry procedures, although oral and dental health has not deteriorated, the required steps are taken to avoid potential problems such as dental caries. Preventive dentistry is very significant especially in childhood and adolescence.
Pulp tissue, which is the deepest tissue in the teeth and includes nerves and vascular packages, is weakened due to factors such as caries that often affect deep tooth tissues and sometimes trauma. When this tissue is weakened, pulp diseases that cause severe pain may be seen or the teeth can lose their vitality. If for whatever cause, the teeth cannot retain their vitality, the nerve tissues in the middle of the tooth, i.e. the pulp, must be washed. This operation is called endodontic therapy, in other words root canal therapy.
Periodontological procedures are used for washing the tartar, cleaning the root surfaces of the teeth, surgical incisions and scraping gum recesses. In addition, the diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as gum tissue disorders around the implant, gum bleeding, tooth irritation and bad breathing are done in the periodontology section.
Pedodontics requires preventive applications as well as diagnosis and care of patients aged 0-15 years. Pedodontic applications Dental era, the period when milk teeth begin to erupt, spans a lengthy period of time including the mixed dentistry period when permanent teeth begin to erupt and the period when permanent teeth are finished.
Oral and maxillo-facial surgery
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a surgical science that deals with all surgical procedures involving teeth and mouth tissues, as well as jaw bones and joints. Specialized oral and maxillofacial surgeons perform dental surgery, treatment of cysts and lesions in jaw bones, implant therapy, graft treatment for the removal of dimensional deterioration of jaw bones, treatment of jaw fractures, ikalapia and all oral surgical procedures, such as local surgery. It was done under anesthesia.
With the advent of implantology therapies, it has become possible to remove tooth defects and full edentulism without problems.
Implant procedures consist of two stages: the surgical stage in which the implants are mounted on the jawbone and the prosthetic stage in which the prosthetic teeth with superstructures are applied. Implant systems are used for fixed prosthesis applications or for removable prosthesis to be more stable in the mouth.
Conditions that disrupt the esthetics of the smile may be corrected by current esthetic dentistry practices. Applications such as bleaching treatments, applications for composite or porcelain laminates, applications for porcelain venners and gingival treatments are among the applications for esthetic dentistry.
There is a wide variety of uses for prosthetic treatments. The first of these is tooth deficiency. There are two types of applications for the removal of dental defects with prosthetic methods. The first of these is temporary dentures, which are added to the mouth with toothless or very little teeth, and the second is coating procedures done in situations where the loss of material in the tooth is large and bridging applications in the case of a small number of teeth missing, i.e. fixed prostheses. Coatings and bridges can be created with a number of different methods and materials.
Orthodontics, a dentistry branch that deals with dental crowding, tooth closure disorders, and disorders in the relationship between the upper and lower jaws, is called orthodontics. Perplexed and irregular teeth are one of the most confused circumstances of people's laughter. In addition, other factors such as gaping teeth and the incompatibility of jaw bones with each other adversely affect both the appearance of the teeth and facial aesthetics. On the other hand, such disorders can impair the function of chewing.
