Webinar - Introduction to the New Periodontal Classification

Course Summary:

The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) has published the official proceedings from the 2017 World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions. Highlights from the 2017 proceedings include a re-categorization of various forms of periodontitis, the development of a novel staging and grading system for periodontitis, and the inaugural classification for peri-implant diseases and conditions.

Major changes included a new section classifying gingival diseases, replacement of the term “chronic periodontitis” with the term “periodontitis” and replacement of severity designations in specific locations with full mouth staging and grading levels.

In this lecture we will review the advantages of a periodontitis case definition system based on "Staging and Grading".
