A collaboration between the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) and the World Heart Federation (WHF), promotes awareness of the important links between periodontal and cardiovascular diseases explaining how these two diseases can be fought together. It provides specific guidelines for oral-health professionals, medical professionals and pharmacists, and patients and the public.
The EFP has issued a reminder to dental patients that they should continue with their dental treatment and that neglecting their oral health can have serious consequences for their health.
One of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic has been that many dental patients have had their treatments suspended or postponed. Periodontists and dentists have often been obliged to postpone non-urgent treatments and this has caused significant delays in dental care
In this context, the EFP urges dental practitioners to follow the evidence-based safety protocol for dental practices which it published in May. In the form of infographics, the protocol outlines ...

Considered to be a major portal of entry for infectious agents, the oral cavity is directly associated with the evolutionary process of SARS-CoV-2 in its inhalation of ambient particles in the air and in expectorations. Some new generations of mouth rinses currently on the market ... >
Anyone who has had gum disease is probably familiar with the discomfort and embarrassment of poor oral health, such as bad breath, bleeding, discolored teeth and even tooth loss.
But gum disease, especially the more advanced type known as periodontal disease, can affect far more than our mouths. Periodontal disease is associated with a wide range of health conditions, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes and dementia ... >
We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and have decided to reschedule the EuroPerio10 congress, which was due to take place in June 2021. The event will now be held in Copenhagen in Spring/Summer 2022.
Our top priority is to ensure that everyone stays healthy. It seems unlikely that the COVID-19 situation will have been resolved sufficiently by June 2021, so the EFP and the EuroPerio10 organising committee feel strongly that postponing the event until 2022 is the best way to ensure a successful meeting, in keeping with EuroPerio’s proud tradition.
The good news:
We understand that this postponement leaves a longer gap than usual between EuroPerio congresses. To overcome this, we are already working on creating a pre-EuroPerio10 online platform providing educational content and interactive sessions starting in Spring 2021. More information will be available soon.
In the meantime, you can find the latest periodontal knowledge on the EFP's YouTube channel, which includes expert videos, interviews, and recordings of the EFP Perio Sessions webinars.
We very much look forward to welcoming you at EuroPerio10 in Copenhagen in 2022. The new dates of the congress will be announced soon.
