New Age Guidelines for Treatment of Periodontal and Peri-implant Disease
The first evidence-based treatment guidelines for treating Periodontal Disease, based on the Classifications of Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases and Conditions have been published. We will investigate these treatment guidelines to analyze and ultimately apply them to our practice.
We will examine the recommended four-step approach to the new age of periodontal therapy published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology. The first step is creating a person-centered care approach involving lifestyle and the reduction of inflammation. The second step empowers the dental hygienist to perform non-surgical periodontal therapy and consider adjunctive therapies. Step three evaluates the case and considers complex treatment that may involve periodontal surgery. The final step creates a plan to promote long term supportive care and provide advice for a healthy lifestyle, including self-care and regular checkups to prevent relapse.
