World Health Day, established by the World Health Organization (WHO), is celebrated globally on April 7 to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining health. We, the specialists from the “Omni Dent ” Dental Clinic, come up with useful recommendations to take more care of the health of the whole organism, but also of the health of the oral cavity. During a friendly discussion with the chief physician of the Clinic, associate professor, Ph.D. Dumitru Sîrbu I found out several remedies to prevent and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
1. World Health Day is marked annually in early April, which is why we decided to discuss the most important issues related to this topic, its proper care and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
A healthy lifestyle involves a state of health of the whole body, including the oral cavity. The health of the oral cavity is manifested by the absence of any diseases, the lack of pain and changes in color and volume of tissues in this region. By the state of comfort we refer to a perfect smile accompanied by a harmonious arrangement of the teeth in the dental arches, support for the soft tissues of the face that accentuate the individual beauty of the personality.
2. How important is what we consume daily and how much does it influence our health?
The main way we provide our body with the necessary resources is through nutrition. Diseases develop in an acidic environment, but through a proper lifestyle, by consuming fruits and vegetables, the acidity can be corrected, maintaining an alkaline environment of the body.
A healthy diet protects us from many chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer, and the fact that we eat a variety of foods, that we have a low consumption of salt, sugar and fats are just some of the essential rules for a healthy diet. .
3. What is the role of oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist?
The role of oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist are indispensable to have a good health of the oral cavity. In the absence of hygiene, dental deposits accumulated from food waste, dehumidified cells and other substances in saliva provide favorable conditions for the multiplication of microbial flora. If the lack of hygiene is accompanied by factors conducive to diseases of the oral cavity (the presence of carious cavities , periodontal pockets , dentomaxillary abnormalities, lack of teeth, etc.) then you are certainly prone to severe complications that sometimes require surgical treatment . .
Thus, observing the hygiene of the oral cavity not only creates health, but also reduces the risk of diseases and their complications, and regular visits to the dentist help us to prevent, but also to orient ourselves in the way of care, and in case of occurrence of diseases at early detection and treatment.
4. What are the most common dental conditions treated at the "Omni Dent" Dental Clinic?
The most common dental conditions are related to poor hygiene and its consequences, such as caries and its complications, gingivitis, periodontitis, periodontitis, dento-maxillary anomalies, partial or total edentations, difficult eruption of the molars. But due to the high professionalism of our specialists and the surgical specifics of the Clinic, even the most difficult clinical situations that our patients face can be treated in the safest and best conditions.
5. Which patients are prone to oral diseases?
If we do not refer to the local conditions we mentioned earlier, then diseases of the oral cavity have a predisposition in patients with various concomitant diseases, as well as patients with long-term treatments, cancer treatments or pregnant patients. Common to all these categories of patients is the decrease in immunity that does not end with microbial invasion.
6. How do the specialists from the “Omni Dent” Dental Clinic help you to treat or avoid dental diseases?
The specialists of the Clinic have a very high professional training, participating annually in dozens of national and international congresses and conferences where they accumulate the most contemporary methods of treatment of dental diseases. In common with the modern technologies within the Clinic, orthopantomography , computed tomography , printer3D, intraoral scanner as well as various auxiliary software for the specialist doctor to make accurate measurements can detect any disease in time.
Finally we come to a question for meditation: "What are you doing for your health?"
