Wrigley Oral Healthcare Programme sugarfree gum webinar series

Led by Professor Avi Banerjee of Kings’ College London, this two-part webinar series will examine how sugarfree gum can prevent dental caries, and the role it can play in prevention regimes and supporting healthy mouths.

About This Wrigley's Webinar Series

The first webinar in this series will discuss the concept and implementation of minimum intervention oral healthcare and the role of sugarfree gum. Speakers will consider the concept of minimum intervention oral healthcare delivery and sugarfree gum in preventative regimes. Speakers will systematically review and synthesise the findings of published studies exploring the oral health impact of chewing sugarfree gum and the health benefits of salivary stimulation. The session will frame and look forward to session two’s discussion on behaviour change and implementing sugarfree gum within preventative strategies.

Building upon discussion from part one of this series, session two will consider how to best communicate with patients to achieve behaviour change, as well as the implementation of oral health strategies in general practice. Speakers will discuss the role of sugarfree gum in caries prevention regimes, evaluating the materials and tools needed by dental professionals to support healthy mouths. With dental surgeries beginning to reopen, speakers will also assess practical resources to promote healthy mouths while working remotely.
