EuroPerio9 took place from June 20 to 23, at the RAI convention centre in Amsterdam. This global scientific meeting point served to announce the latest news regarding periodontal health and its impact on general health. The success of this event was reflected in the nearly 10,000 participants from more than 100 countries around the world who did not want to miss the leading event in the sector.
DENTAID, an expert Oral Health company, presented 9 research studies conducted in the DENTAID Research Center:
- An oral communication: Beta lactamase genes and antibiotic multiresistance in amoxicillin resistant isolates obtained from patients with periodontitis.
- An oral presentation of a scientific poster focused on the Transcriptome analysis of a 4-coloniser community during biofilm formation.
In addition, seven E-posters were presented. Carried out by investigators from the DENTAID Research Center, some of these studies have been in collaboration with American and European universities or with other research centres.
THE IMPORTANCE OF COMPLETE ORAL HYGIENE: INTERPROXIMAL HYGIENE
DENTAID had a booth in the exhibition area to present its latest innovations, with a special introduction of the Interprox product range to emphasise the importance of interproximal cleaning for achieving 100% complete oral hygiene.
The new Interprox campaign was launched, focusing on disclosing the specific features of the widest range of interproximal brushes developed by oral health professionals for the complete removal of oral biofilm from interproximal spaces.
Over the four days of the meeting, more than 120 sessions were offered by world-renowned experts in periodontology and implant dentistry. Issues also to be addressed include: global responsibility for periodontitis, the role of nutrition and the consequences of obesity on gingival health, the impact of sleep disorders on periodontal health, the role of intestinal microbiota on gum disease, gum diseases that affect the rest of the body and the relationship between periodontitis and diabetes and between periodontitis and cardiovascular disease.
Studies developed in DENTAID Research Center
The SEPA oral health and periodontology meeting, which took place in the Seville Exhibition and Convention Centre, welcomed over 5,000 dentistry professionals, who were able to discover DENTAID’s latest oral health innovations.
Perio·Aid, the oral antiseptic indicated for the treatment, maintenance and control of periodontal and peri-implant diseases, announced to SEPA that, as of May, it will present its all-new Perio·Aid 0.20 Bioadhesive Gel in dental clinics. The new VITIS children’s range, for all stages of growth, also stirred interest among the attendees who were provided with a private cosmos to learn about the unique features of each of the seven products that make up the range. Also displayed were VITIS sonic electric toothbrushes, Waterpik water flossers and the VITIS gingival and Perio·Aid product lines.
In parallel, DENTAID, in its commitment to science and scientific research, sponsored different scientific conferences by renowned doctors including Jan Derks and Giovanni Salvi, in their lectures on the clinical management of peri-implant pathologies, Dr Patricia Solano, on comprehensive dental hygiene in paediatric dentistry and Dr Francisco José Enrile on new technologies for basic periodontal treatment.
Meanwhile, with the aim of increasing social awareness of the importance of dental hygiene and the implications of gingival health on overall health, the “Caring for your gums” dental check-up campaign took place in the Santa Justa station of Seville over the three days of the meeting. After the check-up, a VITIS gingival dental kit was given out for home prevention.
VITIS gingival has received the Challenger Award in the Netherlands, one of the most prestigious honours of the Dutch pharmacy channel.
This award is given to companies that have shown remarkable growth with innovative products that strengthen a category, in this case the award-winning range was VITIS gingival.
The contest’s panel of judges chose VITIS gingival unanimously as the winner, for its complete formula to improve the health of teeth and gums. The concept of the product was considered particularly interesting as it builds a bridge between the dental practice and the pharmacist. The recommendation that comes from the dental clinic helps to stimulate sales and, this way, VITIS gingival adds value to the oral health category and to the role of the pharmacist as a health professional.
The award was presented by Jan-Derek Groenendaal, CEO of ETOS, a major health and beauty wholesaler and renowned pharmacy chain in the Netherlands.
This award is the result of the significant growth and innovation of DENTAID in the Netherlands, which reflects the company’s international commitment, reaching more than 70 countries around the world.
DENTAID participated in Expodental from March 15-17, where the company proudly announced its all-new VITIS sonic brush in an exclusive area where attendees were able to personally test this revolutionary device’s sonic power.
Another highlight was the Waterpik® Cordless Express Water Flosser WP-02, an oral irrigator proven to yield great oral health benefits. Because it is battery operated and thanks to its lighter and more portable design, it is ideal for bathrooms with limited space or for use outside the home.
In addition, the company launched its new VITIS children’s range adapted to all stages of growth, and exhibited its VITIS gingival and Perio·Aid product lines, along with all other Dentaid products.
This trade fair has become an industry benchmark, both nationally and internationally, as it gathered 31,144 professionals – 2.6% more than in the previous year – with an international attendance of 2,200 professionals from 73 different countries.
