Dentist Arzu Yalnız Zogun said that those who had COVID-19 had problems in their dental structures, gum problems, changes in the shape and color of the tongue, and said, “With the pandemic, oral cysts, infection, bleeding, and 20-year-old dental problems have increased more than ever. Especially stress-induced clenching causes wear. Worn teeth, on the other hand, disrupt the relationship between the two jaws and change the mouth structure. You should definitely go to the doctor and have an x-ray, ”he said.
Dentist Arzu Yalnız Zogun drew attention to the importance of oral health and gave information about gingival bleeding, tooth loss and changes in language during the pandemic period. Zogun stated that they could easily understand different issues such as the quality of life, illness history and personal care of a patient by looking into the mouth of a patient, and suggested drinking plenty of water, brushing the teeth regularly and eating a healthy diet.
DENTAL TIGHTENINGS RELATED TO STRESS FOUND 95 PERCENT
Drawing attention to the problems that arise when the immune system is thought, Zogun said, “We saw the biggest effect on the gums. We can ignore the caries onset somewhat, but the destruction in the gums and bones is very striking. We saw that many patients who had COVID-19 had inflamed tissue in the gums and encountered a lot of tooth-clenching discomfort. “We see this disease in 90-95 percent of the patients, the severity of clenching has increased with the pandemic,” he said.
DENTAL LOSS IN PATIENTS WITH COVID-19
ALWAYS TAKE X-RAY
Stating that worn teeth will disrupt the relationship between the two jaws and change the mouth structure, Zogun said, “As the age progresses, the lower jaw becomes a little more forward. This also affects our face type. “Every patient who has had Kovid-19 should definitely go to a doctor, have an x-ray and have a gum examination,” he said.
Arzu Yalnız Zogun said, “Patients who come to us complain that they feel as if their teeth are falling out, that they have a burning sensation in their gums and that they suffer from cavities. Covid-19 does not come to mind, but these problems develop depending on it. The biggest problem in patients with Kovid-19 is the inability to feed the gums and bones due to blood clotting. As such, there is no revitalization and regeneration for the mouth. “If there is a cyst in the root of the tooth, it will grow in this period.”
THE COLOR OF THE LANGUAGE HAS ALSO CHANGED
Saying that tongue and gums are linked with saliva and the proteins in it, Zogun said, “We can understand directly from the mouth that the immune system is down. Because the saliva changes in patients with Kovid-19, the sensitivity on the tongue and the balance of the cilia (small hairs) are disturbed. It is the different colors on the tongue that I see in my patients. The image of everyone’s language is unique. If there is a change in shape and color, know that there is a peculiarity in your immunity and hormones. Depending on the dryness of the patients, the language becomes defensive. Reactions with defense are also reflected in the image. Patients should definitely pay attention to the appearance and color of the tongue. If this happens, consume plenty of water. “The image and color of the tongue returns to its original state when it starts to eat normal food.”
BLEEDING IN THE TOOTH AND THE LANGUAGE PASSED IN 6 MONTHS
Bayram Kandemir, a 31-year-old dance instructor who had Kovid-19 6 months ago, knocked on Zogun’s door with complaints of dryness, burning in the tongue and bleeding in the gums, saying that he overcame Kovid-19 slightly but lost taste and smell, saying, started. During this period, my tongue was burning. Arzu Hanım cleaned my teeth. I took care of brushing my tongues regularly, I consumed too much water. I watched what I ate, so I got through. “It has been 6 months, it has just been passing,” he said.
