If you are referring to the default database tables then there are
functions available that allow you to add/remove/insert records. If
these are custom tables then I typically would create functions which
handle those operations, along with any required validation and
sanitisation. That way any SQL statements (and the global $wpdb) are
contained within those three (or thereabouts) functions.
