This course provides a guide to assist both clinicians and students to navigate through the recently introduced Classification of Periodontal and Peri-implant diseases by the American Academy of Periodontology and the European Federation of Periodontology in 2018. Key dynamics that played a role in the creation of this classification are discussed including both new discoveries resulting from the human microbiome project as well as the concept of Precision Medicine. This classification system is a major paradigm shift from the previous 1999 classification. Thus, an easy four-step approach for determining a periodontal diagnosis is presented along with clinical photos and radiographs for each case type.
