Course Description


The new Classification of Periodontal diseases represent an opportunity in periodontal care. The staging of the periodontitis and subsequent grading of the progression based on systemic and local risk factors are valuable for periodontal therapy. This course will present an easy-to-follow path to the correct diagnosis of periodontal diseases, and the stage and grade of Periodontitis for your patients. The diagnosis sets the stage for personalized care for patients with periodontitis. The course will be a case-based discussion on diagnosis and individualized treatment planning utilizing the knowledge and tools provided by the new classification to provide periodontal and maintenance care.

We will answer these questions about your patients. What new innovations are there to control biofilms and inflammation in initial therapy? Which patients benefit from regenerative care, or advanced periodontal therapy? How do we identify these patients effectively? When do we know we have optimized the periodontal health and what are the endpoints for treatment?
