The European Federation of Periodontology, in the second edition of its Innovation Award, has recognized three projects with the seal of the City University of Paris, the University of Bern and King’s College London.
The EFP Innovation Award for Digital Solutions in Periodontal Health aims to promote the advancement of new ideas in the field of digital technologies that seek to improve gum health. Thus, the European organization has announced the winners of the 2023 edition of these awards, which have been awarded with the support of Helen.
The first prize was awarded to “My Perio Care” by Claire Bigot from Cité de Paris University. Its application addresses unmet needs of both patients and dentists to improve periodontal care management, from primary prevention to disease therapy. “My Perio Care” helps oral health professionals diagnose gum disease based on a set of parameters so that they can provide personalized services to their patients such as app specific care information, oral health education, follow-up of your periodontal write to do. parameters and, even, tele-consultation if necessary. During treatment, monitoring is individual and non-intrusive.
The second prize went to the project “my.periodontal-health.com” presented by Christoph Ramsier from the University of Bern. Developed in collaboration with Ukraine-based IT professionals, the tool supports personalized periodontal care and allows clinicians and patients to transfer clinical data from other periodontal technologies such as www.perio-tools.com. In this way, it helps patients achieve and maintain periodontal stability during adjuvant periodontal care; For example, they can receive email reminders about upcoming clinic visits or an estimate of the health care costs saved by attending their appointments regularly.
Third prize was awarded to “Digital technology for monitoring and controlling oral endotoxin activity levels for individualized primary and secondary prevention of gum disease and associated systemic complications” developed by Svetislav Zarik of King’s College London. This work includes two rapid and reliable tests based on the profile of oral bacterial endotoxins: a subgingival plaque test that is performed by dental professionals for individualized and site-specific management of patient gingival health conditions, and a home Saliva self-testing for the general public for the early detection and prevention of gum disease before significant tissue destruction occurs.
