New: Oral health

New evaluation indicator in vivamind Checkup

Gum inflammation (periodontitis) is one of the most common chronic diseases worldwide. However, many people do not realize that they are affected because periodontitis is mostly not painful and the first signs of the disease are not taken seriously enough. If left untreated, periodontitis can lead to tooth loss, with far-reaching consequences. According to the German Oral Health Study (DMS V), 51.6 percent of 35-44 year olds and 64.6 percent of 65-74 year olds are affected by moderate or severe periodontitis.

Periodontitis is a portal of entry for oral microorganisms into the body. It is a risk factor for other diseases such as coronary heart disease. However, periodontitis is easily treatable, especially if the disease is detected early.

The new test is now part of the vivamind Checkup. With this test, you can easily assess your own risk for the possible presence of periodontitis.

vivamind thus closes an important gap in the prevention of risks and diseases.
