Review of the proceedings on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions

Speaker: Audra Ward

Course Details


There have been major advances over the last seventeen years in the specialty of periodontics, prompting the American Academy of Periodontology and European Federation of Periodontology to sponsor an update to the 1999 classification system. The new system attempts to redefine, modernize and standardize a classification system that allows for the individualization of patient care. Today we will take a look at those changes and compare them against the previous classification system.
