Course Description:

The 2017 World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-implant diseases and conditions thoroughly revised the 1999 Classification of Periodontal diseases and conditions. The Workshop involved more than 170 leading clinicians and researchers creating an unique effort to unite the periodontal community worldwide. It aligns and update the Classification scheme in relation to the most recent literature covering relevant concepts of periodontal and implant dentistry. It was published simultaneously in North America and Europe in June 2018. The Classification incorporates updated concepts of periodontal systemic involvement, risk assessment and progression of periodontal disease. It includes a few new categories and relevant concepts, such as:

  • introduced periodontal health with or without intact periodontium categories;
  • eliminated chronic and aggressive periodontitis denomination including only three subsets of periodontitis (necrotizing, periodontitis as a manifestation of systemic diseases, and periodontitis);
  • identification and classification of periodontitis using new staging and grading system;
  • new classification for endodontic-periodontal lesions;
  • updated gingival recession classification;
  • added a new category to classify peri-implant disease and conditions.

The categories of the Classification will be presented, discussed and correlated to the general practitioner’s daily routine. The mock cases presentation allows the audience to discuss and assign diagnosis using the new Classification.


Course Objectives:

  • Compare content and scope of 1999 Classification of Periodontal diseases and conditions X 2018 Classification of Periodontal and Peri-implant diseases and conditions;
  • Describe all categories of 2018 Classification of Periodontal and Peri-implant diseases and conditions emphasizing the importance of customizing patient’s treatment;
  • Introduce concepts of staging and grading to assign periodontal disease diagnosis;
  • Apply the concepts of the new classification to Identify individuals of higher risk of periodontal disease breakdown;
  • Discuss the relevance of the new Classification in relation to current precision medicine concepts;
  • Discuss and assign diagnosis to mock cases using the new Classification scheme.
