Sunstar partners with the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) to launch the ‘Perio & Diabetes’ campaign. There is a bi-directional relationship between oral health and diabetes: people with periodontal disease have a 20-30% higher risk of developing diabetes, and those who have diabetes are 1.5 times more likely to develop gum disease.
The ‘Perio & Diabetes’ materials are targeted to Oral Care professionals, the public, the Medical community, Policy Makers, Researchers and the Media. There are four types of documents: brochures, recommendations, infographics and scientific reports.
Also, there are educational videos available:Brochures : Oral Team
