Course Description
The current periodontal and peri-implant diagnostic classification system was released in 2018, but some practitioners have yet to adopt it. This course will review the rationale for the recommendations that were proposed to the previous 1999 classification and discuss the main changes that were introduced in the current system. Cases will be used to highlight the most common periodontal and peri-implant diagnoses that will be encountered in general dental practice.
