ECG-Colgate Research Award 2016

This year’s ECG Colgate award was attributed to a study presented by Dr Sabrina Maniewicz from the Division of Gerodontology and Removable Prosthodontics, University of Geneva, Switzerland, entitled: “Masticatory Performance and Salivary Function in patients with an inferior IOD compared to a CD – an RCT with a follow-up up to 6 years”.
The research team included Sabrina Maniewicz, Elena Duvernay, Angelica Loup, and Professor Frauke Müller from the Division of Gerodontology and Removable Prosthodontics, University Clinics of Dental Medicine, University of Geneva, Lydia Vazquez from the  Department of Orofacial Rehabilitation, Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, University Clinics of Dental Medicine, University of Geneva, Professor Thomas Perneger from the Division of Clinical Epidemiology, University Hospital of Geneva, and Professor Martin Schimmel from the Division of Gerodontology, School of Dental Medicine, University of Bern. The study concluded that the maximum voluntary bite force was improved in the implants group, but there was no relevant increase in the salivary flow rate.

Background of the European College of Gerodontology

European College of Gerodontology (ECG) is a forum for contact between all those sharing an interest in the oral care for the elders, a place for fostering international cooperation on research in gerodontology and for establishing a European body to which questions concerning oral health, oral health policies and educational aspects for Gerodontology can be referred.
