FDI publishes White Papers – highlighting the challenges and potential solutions around topics of global concern – with the aim of driving change at both the policy and clinical level to improve oral health worldwide.
The white paper outlines the prevention strategies and treatment procedures which make up the field of endodontics and identifies challenges in the provision of endodontic care in daily dental practice.
This white paper provides oral health professionals with a comprehensive yet succinct summary of the main issues related to the global prevalence and impacts, aetiology and pathogenesis, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal diseases. It also identifies the key challenges in tackling the burden of periodontal diseases and provides an action plan for oral health professionals, policymakers, and other related actors.
The FDI-Colgate Caries Prevention Partnership (CPP) was formed in 2015 to enhance caries prevention through information, education and other activities targeting dental health professionals, patients and the public in general. This White Paper aims to provide the information that is necessary to understand why change is important, and how it can be initiated and conducted.
