Periodontologist Dr. Süleyman Emre Meşe said that unconscious use of antibiotics causes serious damage to teeth as well as general health.
HOW DOES IT DAMAGE ORAL AND DENTAL HEALTH?
“UNCONSCIOUS USE IS VERY DANGEROUS”
Reminding that antibiotics are drugs used in the treatment of bacterial infections, Meşed, “The biggest mistake made in the society is the use of antibiotics in the treatment of viral infectious diseases such as flu and common cold. The greatest danger of unnecessary and unconscious use of antibiotics is the resistance of bacteria to antibiotics. “Antibiotic resistance makes the treatment of curable pneumonia, tuberculosis or other bacterial infections difficult or sometimes impossible,” he said. Underlining that antibiotics can kill bacteria that are beneficial to the body as well as bacteria that harm the body, Meşe said, “For this reason, frequent use of antibiotics may cause the absence of these beneficial bacteria living in balance in our body and the occurrence of other diseases related to them. “Some antibiotics can be life threatening by causing allergic reactions in hypersensitive people,” he said.
Stating that not all antibiotics may work in every bacterial infection, Meli concluded his words as follows: “The thought of” disease will not pass without antibiotics “is extremely wrong and therefore, like every drug, antibiotics should only be used with the recommendation and prescription of a physician.”
