Verily and Colgate-Palmolive announced a strategic collaboration to advance oral health research. Under the agreement, Colgate's Dental Clinical Team will partner with Verily to conduct an innovative oral health study as part of Verilys ongoing Baseline Health Study that will aim to improve understanding of connections between oral health and overall human health. The studys goal is to see how oral health practices, including intensive non-surgical periodontal therapy, as well as a robust Colgate home oral hygiene regimen monitored through its hum smart toothbrush connected technologies, affect health more broadly. Periodontal treatment focuses on addressing issues with gums and oral health before they become more serious and potentially lead to tooth loss. The study will enroll current participants in Verilys ongoing Baseline Health Study, ages 18 and older, with prediabetes, type 2 diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease for up to 18 months. The non-surgical periodontal therapy will be administered by co-investigators at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Adams School of Dentistry.
