Neglected caries. What to do with this problem?
Rotting is the exact translation of the word "caries
". Some time ago this term was used to denote inflammatory process of the bone tissues (or osteomyelitis). Nowadays this word is used to denote the disease of the firm bone tissues followed by the destruction of the dentine layer and teeth enamel.
Caries is seriously affected by the inner condition of the patients organism the condition of the immune system, digestive system, and healthy eating habits. The dentists view caries as a systemic disease with expressed destruction of the firm bone tissues. That is why it would be more exact to call caries a carious disease.
