More and more information is becoming available about the important relationship between general health and oral health.


There is increasingly strong evidence of an association between gingival/periodontal disease and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ACVD). Plausible mechanisms, including genetic pleiotropy, have been researched to explain the links between periodontal diseases and ACVD. Further, intervention studies to improve periodontal conditions have shown not only resolution of oral inflammatory processes, but also improvements in general health, such as the vascular system. In particular, the systemic condition of those who are already afflicted with cardiovascular diseases or diabetes, shows significant improvements. It is recommended that general physicians and cardiologists ask their patients to be screened by dental care professionals for the presence of oral infections and inflammation.

Investigator Research Grant

June 23, 5 p.m.

 

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the research grant sponsored by Philips Oral Healthcare and offered through the IADR Periodontal Research Group.


The goal of the grant is to provide seed funding for a postdoctoral student/staff member who is within 12 months of successfully completing a Ph.D. at the time of the submission deadline, and wishes to establish an independent program of research.


The research proposal must have a clinical theme in line with Philips Oral Healthcare's desire to support and promote clinical research. The main judging criteria are relevance/importance and scientific quality, but an upward moderation applies for intercontinental collaborative applications.


Dr. Marc Watts will present the award on behalf of Philips.
