Sunstar supports the launch of the "Sports & Dentistry” guidelines 02/07/2019

Sunstar has partnered with the World Dental Federation (FDI) to launch the 'Sports & Dentistry' guidelines to show the importance of the relationship between oral health and sports performance.

The aim of the project is to make oral health a priority for both professional and amateur athletes. There are four guidelines available, and each one targets a specific public: amateur athletes, professional athletes, dentists and sports organisations.

This project also highlights the basic oral care recommendations for sports fans: brushing the teeth twice a day, interdental brushing and mouthwash, and dental check-up twice a year. Furthermore, athletes are highly recommended to wear a mouthguard when engaging in contact sports. 

The ultimate goal is to spread the message that oral care matters and impacts the performance of various sports activities.
