The boundaries between caries and periodontal diseases
6-9 November 2016
The EFP Perio Workshop 2016, organised in partnership with the European Organisation for Caries Research (ORCA), focused on the relationship between caries and periodontal diseases.
During the workshop, 75 invited experts from the two organisations reviewed the available evidence on the common links between these important oral conditions. There was a special emphasis on the associated causes and risk factors and on aspects of prevention that may influence both periodontal diseases and caries.
The workshop, sponsored by Colgate, took place from November 6 to 9, 2016 in La Granja de San Ildefonso, near Segovia in Spain, which has been the venue of recent editions of the EFP Perio Workshop.
The conclusions of the workshop were published in a special open-access supplement of the EFP’s Journal of Clinical Periodontology.
“Caries and periodontal diseases have always been considered as very separate entities,” says Mariano Sanz, chairman of the EFP Perio Workshop. “But recent evidence clearly points to several mechanisms and factors shared by both. This workshop will serve to identify these similarities – as well as the distinct characteristics of each entity – and will thus recommend clear preventive measures at both individual and population level.”
