Aim The aim of this study is to present the analysis of internet data about dental and orthodontic treatments during the COVID-19 pandemic process in the world. Material and Methods On May 5, 2020, nine terms (coronavirus oral, COVID-19 dentistry, coronavirus dentistry, coronavirus dental, coronavirus oral care, coronavirus dental treatment, COVID-19 dental treatment, COVID-19 orthodontic, coronavirus orthodontic treatment, and coronavirus orthodontic) were searched in the last quarterly Google Trends app. Search results were recorded separately for all keywords and separately for 24 countries in the world with sufficient data. These data are correlated with total confirmed COVID-19 cases in countries. Pearson correlation test was used for correlation values between total confirmed COVID-19 cases with mean Google Trend values. Results The highest GT values were found in the United Kingdom(100), USA(96), and Canada(63) when Google Trends searched for "coronavirus dentistry". In searches related to coronavirus - dental treatments, the highest data was seen in the United Kingdom(100), while it was(95) in the USA, (41) in Spain. In the searches related to coronavirus - orthodontic treatment, the highest data was obtained in the USA and United Kingdom(100) while India(36) and France(18) followed. There is not enough search data in other countries. According to the table, there was a negative correlation(r:735; p:0.411) between GT values and total confirmed COVID-19 cases, but it was not found statistically significant(p> 0.05). Conclusion There was no significant relationship between Google Trends values and total confirmed COVID-19 cases.
Amaç Bu çalışmanın amacı, dünyadaki COVID-19 salgını sırasında dental ve ortodontik tedaviler hakkında internet verilerinin analizini sunmaktır. Materyal-Metot 5 Mayıs 2020'de Google Trends uygulamasında 9 terim (coronavirus oral, COVID-19 dentistry, coronavirus dentistry, coronavirus dental, coronavirus oral care, coronavirus dental treatment, COVID-19 dental treatment, COVID-19 orthodontic, coronavirus orthodontic treatment, and coronavirus orthodontic) son üç aylık süreçte arandı. Arama sonuçları yeterli anahtar kelimeye sahip tüm anahtar kelimeler için ayrı ayrı ve dünyadaki 24 ülke için ayrı ayrı kaydedildi. Bu veriler, ülkelerdeki onaylanmış toplam COVID-19 vakası ile ilişkilidir. Toplam doğrulanmış COVID-19 olguları ile ortalama Google Trend değerleri arasındaki korelasyon değerleri için Pearson korelasyon testi kullanıldı. Bulgular En yüksek GT değerleri, " coronavirus dentistry " aramasında İngiltere (100), ABD (96) ve Kanada'da (63) bulundu. Koronavirüs - diş tedavileri ile ilgili aramalarda en yüksek veriler Birleşik Krallık'ta (100), ABD'de (95) ve İspanya'da (41) görülmüştür. Koronavirüs - ortodontik tedavi ile ilgili aramalarda en yüksek veriler ABD ve Birleşik Krallık'ta (100) elde edilirken, Hindistan (36) ve Fransa (18) bunu takip etmiştir. Diğer ülkelerde yeterli arama verisi bulunamamıştır. Tabloya göre, GT değerleri ile toplam doğrulanmış COVID-19 olguları arasında negatif bir korelasyon (r: 735; p: 0.411) olmasına rağmen, istatistiksel olarak anlamlı bulunmadı (p>0.05). Sonuç Google Trends değerleri ile onaylanmış toplam COVID-19 vakası arasında anlamlı bir ilişki bulunamamıştır.
