Periodontal treatment in Prenzlauer Berg
In addition to tooth decay (caries), inflammation of the periodontal tissues, affecting your gums and supporting bone, is the most frequently known chronic disease, occurring in roughly half of the adult population in Germany. The medical term for this is periodontitis. The inflammation begins without us noticing and develops slowly over a period of years. Periodontitis is also the main cause of tooth loss in adults. The risk of developing other common diseases, such as diabetes, rheumatism or coronary illnesses, is much greater and the severity of the disease much higher if you are suffering from untreated periodontitis. Although the progress of this progressive disease varies greatly between patients, it can be easily detected and treated early on if you have regular checkups at your dentist.
