Download new guide to periodontal disease classification

A NEW global periodontal disease classification has been published highlighting the critical role of prevention and management of gingivitis.

Key changes in the new classification include a new definition of clinical periodontal health, removal of the term aggressive periodontitis, and the introduction of staging and grading for the disease which forms part of a new classification statement for patients.
