Protection from the Virus Begins in the Mouth

How can dental treatment be done during the pandemic period?

Covid-19 affected our entire lives, causing us to live in an unfamiliar order. Our dental treatments, which we consider to be mandatory and not urgent, have also been suspended. According to experts, one of the most important instruments of fighting the virus is to protect our oral and dental health.

Avoiding Treatment Causes Tooth Loss

One of the negative effects of the pandemic is the disruption and postponement of oral and dental health treatments. Both physicians, healthcare professionals and patients consider the possibility of encountering the virus and choose to avoid treatment, and they further risk their oral and dental health by applying ear-to-ear, unfounded methods on their own. Even a simple filling that is not made can result in canal treatment or tooth loss. A possible inflammation caused by unsocible treatment can mix with the blood, wake you from sleep at night and cause fatigue and lower your body resistance. In short, the treatment you postponed to protect yourself from the virus may be weakening your immune system and bringing you closer to the virus.

How can dental treatment be done during the pandemic period?

The treatments you postpone can cause your body resistance to decrease. Dental treatments should be completed in order to avoid such a situation and should not be afraid to go to the dentist in case of any complaints. The procedures already performed in a sterile environment in the pre-pandemic period can be carried out by taking stricter measures during the pandemic process. After the patients have finished the procedure, the examination rooms can be made ready for the next patient by foging through a special device using hypochlorus acid. In addition, dental equipment can be made suitable for reuse with the help of autoclaves that provide sterilization using high heat.

Physicians’ use of FFP2 and even FFP3 masks during treatment, if possible, as well as wearing visors will greatly prevent the transfer of possible infection between them and the patient. In this process, it can be useful for oral and dental health centres to work with the appointment system in order to avoid density and crowding.
