Summary

In 2017, the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) and the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) updated the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions. Since the 1999 classification, the continued use of clinical attachment calculations with confirmation of radiographic bone loss standardizes the language used to classify the severity and extent of disease.

Educators are required to incorporate the updated classification system into didactic and clinical curriculum. This webinar will explore common calibration challenges with a focus on clinical attachment and radiographic bone loss. Example exercises and decision-making strategies for students and faculty will also be presented.
