ORAL & GENERAL HEALTH

The Links Between Periodontitis, Atherosclerosis, and Diabetes

Can periodontitis or other inflammatory processes of the oral cavity contribute to the development of cardiovascular diseases and systemic conditions such as atherosclerosis or diabetes, or negatively influence their course? Sunstar Foundation together with Quintessence Publishing, have the pleasure of presenting a new cutting-edge HD video animation that deals with these issues by visualizing the highly complex intercellular interactions and signaling pathways.

The animated video is the latest module of the Cell-to-Cell Communication series established by Quintessence Publishing over the past four years. The Sunstar Foundation is proud to be part of this project as it fully aligns with its educational initiatives that focuses on the link between oral and systemic health to enhance health promotion, disease prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. The project is supported by Sunstar.
