Did you know that...
- more teeth are lost through periodontitis than through caries?...

- more than 50% of 31-44 year olds are affected by periodontitis?
- numerous general diseases are closely related to periodontitis?
30 million German citizens are affected by periodontitis - 1.1 million are treated per year - it will take 30 years to treat existing cases at this rate.
Did you know that...
- we can detect periodontitis with simple tests (aMMP-8) even before the first clinical symptoms appear?
- you yourself can fight the tooth killer?
- we can help you that the affected bone can regenerate?
My story about the case of periodontitis:
March 8, 2012: I stand in front of our medicine drawer in the morning and lay out my armada of different medications. At that moment, my wife says a crucial sentence:
"Honey, you do realize that by now you are taking more medication than my father."... Wow, that sat... My father-in-law was almost 80 years old at this point.
But what had happened? In May 2011, I had the seventh and so far most severe episode of a chronic bowel disease. During a longer stay in hospital, the medication was changed. The administered medications had side effects, which were treated with additional medications. These also had side effects - gradually this developed into the aforementioned medication armada with various health problems. I wanted to break this vicious circle and searched the literature for new ways to achieve this.
During my investigative work on chronic intestinal diseases, I repeatedly encountered an old acquaintance from dentistry: periodontitis. Motivated by my own successes in the fight against ulcerative colitis, I decided to additionally follow the trail of our tooth killer. My goal: to fight periodontitis more successfully with the newly acquired knowledge and the newly discovered possibilities.
But how?
