RESEARCH SHOWS THAT OUR JAWS ARE GETTING SMALLER IN SIZE

Stating that the use of braces is increasing in children and adults, Turkish dentist experts have made important warnings, saying that processed foods and industrial nutrition cause serious damage to the tissues of the mouth and jaw from a young age. Turkey Medicals member and Specialist dentist gave information to families and adults about the behaviors they should acquire.

Expressing that there are many reasons for orthodontic disorders, Dentist said that environmental factors, mainly genetic factors, are also effective in such cases. “For example, a finger-sucking child can also have bad teeth. I would like to draw attention to one of these factors here, namely the cross of teeth that can be caused by not doing too much chewing. But of course, there is also no rule that there will be no confusion in individuals who chew very well. If an individual has a jaw problem with their genes from their mother and father, no matter what this individual does, they may still have problems with their teeth. The exclusion of processed foods and carbonated drinks with a high sugar content from the diet of a growing child as much as possible can be considered the main step in maintaining oral and dental health. The number of Turkish children wearing braces has increased markedly due to the distortion of their teeth around us. Research shows that our jaws have been getting smaller and smaller over the ages. In contrast, it shows that the size of our teeth is getting smaller and smaller. In contrast, it is mentioned that the size of our teeth remains large because they are less exposed to natural abrasions,” she said.

WE CAN’T GIVE OUR CHEWING MUSCLES THE RIGHT

Muscle that it is absolutely necessary to develop the dental muscles of children, atrization is the wear of the chewing surfaces by rubbing the teeth against each other due to chewing, and this occurs over the years. Specialist dentist said; “Thanks to these abrasions, the teeth can be properly sorted in the jaw in a certain balance. In muscles to prevent these abrasions from occurring in a healthy way, it is necessary to feed the individual with natural, raw and hard foods (fruits, vegetables, meat, nuts) by biting, chewing, that is, using the chewing muscles and teeth as needed. In modern society, we have adopted a nutrition style in which nutrients are ingested quickly without the need to bite, tear or literally chew on a diet consisting of processed, soft foods. We don’t chew, we eat fast. In other words, we can say that we can’t grind nutrients exactly, and we can’t give our chewing muscles and teeth muscle right. This case, the bone structure that develops due to the muscles can develop poorly without using its full potential, and we observe the reflection of this in the teeth and the disorder of the interj muscle relationships. When these reasons come together, we can say that it is necessary to re-evaluate the modern way of eating, especially the nutrition of children of growth and development age, it is necessary to turn to unprocessed, unadulterated and natural products. This will make a great contribution not only to oral and dental health, but also to overall health”

INDUSTRIAL NUTRITION AFFECTS THE MOUTH AND JAW

Stating that there is a voluntary / involuntary departure from nature and the natural in modern society, Specialist dentist, “We move less, we are content with less oxygen. We are more exposed to artificially flavored unnatural foods. Not only us, but also our children born in this environment grow and develop in this way. We can observe your industrial type of nutrition in the whole body, as well as in the tissues of the mouth and jaw. Because excessively sugary, soft processed foods combine with saliva to become sticky and hold on to the teeth quickly, they serve as an excellent nutrient storage for caries-causing microorganisms. The difficult cleaning of this type of food and the fact that the sugar or syrups in them are easily available for microorganisms make an excellent basis for the formation of caries. An increased incidence of dental caries occurs as an inevitable fact in children who often consume this type of food,” she said.
