Oral Health and Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a crucial time in a woman’s life during which oral health is of fundamental importance, as periodontal disease has been linked to various pregnancy complications.
The EFP and leading oral-healthcare brand Oral-B have launched the Oral Health and Pregnancy project, which will bring advice based on the latest scientific evidence to health professionals and patients across Europe.
Perio and Caries
The EFP project 'Perio & Caries’ builds on the outcomes of Perio Workshop 2016, devoted to “The boundaries between dental caries and periodontal disease”, jointly organised by the EFP with ORCA (European Organisation for Caries Research) in November 2016 and sponsored by Colgate. Perio Workshop is a leading annual scientific meeting focusing on state-of-the-art issues relating to gum health and gum disease, organised by the EFP in La Granja, Spain under the chairmanship of Mariano Sanz.
Perio and Diabetes
The Perio & Diabetes project, a collaboration between the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) and Sunstar, promotes awareness of the important links between periodontal diseases and diabetes explaining how these two diseases can be fought together. It provides specific guidelines for oral-health professionals, medical professionals and pharmacists, researchers, policymakers, patients and the public, and the media.
