Global periodontal health: challenges, tackling strategies & an update on FDI’s action
Periodontal diseases are a major global health burden with huge socio-economic impacts and healthcare costs. Severe periodontitis as the leading cause of multiple tooth loss and edentulism in adults not only badly affects oral health, but also closely associates with major non-communicable diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Whereas, people’s awareness of oral/periodontal health remains low worldwide. The global strategy of oral/periodontal health in all policies and common risk factor approach are extremely important for tackling periodontal problems. This presentation addresses these critical issues and strategic frameworks of global periodontal health, with an update on FDI’s Global Periodontal Health Project.
