A small problem that starts from the teeth and gums; in fact, it can be a high level of risk factors for heart attack, pregnancy, erection, diabetes and respiratory diseases. the healing process of gum diseases can be started with a 45-minute Istanbul dental gum laser treatment.

The intraoral region is an area where there is intense germ activity, open to all kinds of external influences. It is home to many diseases, especially teeth and gums. Diseases such as caries, tooth root inflammation, abscess and cyst formation in the later stages create serious problems in this area. In addition, gum disease; as an infectious disease that affects the tissues surrounding and supporting the tooth, it leads to the loss of even teeth that never have caries. Prolonged gum swelling, red and bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity and bad breath can be signals of gum disease and, if not treated in a timely manner, have serious consequences for your entire body.


It has been stated that men with gum problems have three times more difficulty hardening than others, and dental problems have been observed more often in patients with erection problems. There were 30 percent more heart attacks in individuals with oral infection compared to individuals without infection. Individuals with advanced gingivitis and dental diseases have a 25 percent higher risk of developing heart disease than healthy individuals. Again, men younger than 50 years of age with advanced gingivitis have a 72 percent higher risk of developing heart disease than their healthy counterparts.


Again, in mothers with advanced gingivitis and dental diseases, problems such as premature birth, low birth weight, and infant death in the womb are observed. Severe gingivitis and dental diseases adversely affect the control of diabetes mellitus. It has also been revealed that there is an improvement in the control of blood values of diabetics after gum treatment. Lung infections can develop when people with dental and gum disease inhale saliva. Plaque that accumulates in the tooth in high-risk patients with poor oral hygiene; it serves as a source for microbes that provoke respiratory diseases.


In high-risk patients, such as patients requiring intensive care and home care, bacteria and viruses that lead to lung diseases accumulate in the mouth. For this reason, it is very important to make oral hygiene appropriate. It is recommended that patients with systemic conditions that fall into the high-risk group start the best dental treatment in Turkey before starting treatment to eliminate the risk factors that may occur. Some studies conducted in recent years; he has shown that advanced gum diseases that have been going on for many years can be associated with polycystic ovary syndrome in women and erection problems in men. Scientists have noted that treating advanced gum disease can bring serious benefits to solving erection problems.


Of course, it is possible to avoid the vital problems that can be caused by a gum disease that seems simple. The most important thing in this regard is that today the prevention of gum diseases has become quite easy. With just a 45-minute laser treatment, the healing process of important gum diseases can begin. My suggestion; before any aesthetic application or surgical operation, make sure that your gums are healthy. Otherwise, all the treatments you will have may be in vain. It can even lead to much greater troubles. The transition from a healthy gum to a sick, inflamed gum does not happen very quickly in a normal person; it is a process that usually spreads over a large period of time, showing symptoms. If you do not ignore these symptoms and go to the course of treatment, you can stop this process, which extends to the progression of inflammation and dec loss of teeth, the formation of abscesses. So is it possible to determine if you have gum diseases that have such serious consequences? We have prepared two mini-tests that can give you an idea about this.

7. Have you noticed inflammation between dec teeth and gums?

8. Have you noticed that there are differences in your teeth when you close your teeth and bite them?
