Date:5/14/2010

Alexandria, Va., USA The International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Consumer Healthcare today announced the 2010 winners of the annual IADR/GSK Innovation in Oral Care Awards. The three prestigious awards recognize research in innovative oral care technologies that may maintain and improve oral health and the quality of life.

However, it is well recognized that bacterial infection is a significant cause of implant failure. There is thus an urgent need for technologies that can effectively prevent such infection from occurring. Implant coatings with durable antimicrobial properties together with enhanced bone compatibility will lead to a reduction in the total number of revisions and an increase in the expected implant lifespan, considerably reducing the attributable economic burden and patient morbidity.
