In the two decades since the last classification of periodontitis, substantial new evidence and new understandings of these diseases have emerged which indicate that some of the population develops more severe clinical expression of periodontitis. The future of periodontics is primarily about managing clinically and biologically complex patients, which constitute at least 20 to 25% of our adult population. This session will provide a simple process for applying the 2018 classification of periodontitis in your practice to provide the best prevention and treatment for your patients.
- Understand the necessity to reclassify periodontitis.
- Learn how to start staging and grading your first patients.
- Learn the benefits of the new classification for your patients.
