Oral-B and Straumann partner on a landmark alliance for scientific education to improve the periodontal and peri-implant health of patients worldwide

Oral-B and Straumann has announced a new global alliance whose purpose is to elevate the importance of prevention in periodontal and peri-implant health. The alliance will set new standards in quality scientific education for dental professionals and help their patients achieve better long-term outcomes.

The Oral-B Straumann alliance has a long-term goal of delivering a holistic programme of scientific events, professional courses, webinars and publications, co-created with and delivered by the world’s leading experts and thought leaders in dentistry.

The alliance will be launched on 17 June 2022 with a Sponsored Scientific Session at EuroPerio10 Copenhagen – dental congress in periodontology and implant dentistry – where both companies will also present their recent innovations for periodontal and peri-implant patients: Straumann Biomaterials solutions ranging from enhanced wound healing and bone regeneration to soft-tissue management and wound care and Oral-B iO Specialized Clean brush head, Oral-B iO10 & iOsense to empower patients in effective self-care.

“As patients around the world invest in dental implants, they need to recognise that self-care around implants is just as important as around their natural teeth. The Oral-B Straumann Alliance will play an important role in enabling ongoing dialogue between dental professionals and their patients so both understand the most up to date science on prevention of implant-related diseases and promotion of periodontal health,” said J. Leslie Winston, vice president, Global Health Care R&D, Procter & Gamble.

Arik Zucker, vice-president, Global Head of Biomaterials, Straumann Group, added: “Prevention of tooth or implant loss is for many years an important topic for us in the Straumann Group. As one of the world’s leading dental implant companies, we work closely with experts from the research and clinical fields to address the issues caused by peri-implantitis and periodontitis. The Alliance with Oral-B complements our efforts and offers a solid ground for further scientific and educational activities that will enable more dental professionals to improve their patients’ lives.”
