EFP launches awareness programme on caries and gum disease
The EFP has launched an ambitious awareness programme about the relationship between dental caries and periodontal disease – the most common non-communicable diseases in humans and the leading causes of tooth loss.
Brochure empowers the oral-healthcare team to tackle gum disease and caries
Giving support to oral healthcare professionals in their efforts to tackle gum disease and dental caries is the purpose of a dedicated recommendation brochure, published as part of the Perio & Caries initiative. This publication offers advice for periodontists, dentists, and other members of the dental team on how to prevent and deal with periodontal diseases and caries.
Perio & Caries offers guidance and encourages the public to prevent gum disease and tooth decay
The Perio & Caries initiative developed by the EFP includes a recommendation brochure intended for the general public, which translates into easily understandable yet accurate terms how to prevent and fight both gum disease and dental caries, the most widespread human conditions. They are at the same time the two most frequent reasons why people lose their teeth.
Physicians, researchers, and policymakers are offered specific recommendations to deal with gum disease and caries
Oral healthcare professionals and the general population are major targets of the new EFP-led Perio & Caries project of knowledge dissemination for gum disease and tooth decay. However, there are three other relevant stakeholders that are key to the success of this awareness initiative: non-dental health professionals, policymakers, and researchers.
