Course Description

3 Core 1 CE Credits

Online Lecture


A classification scheme for periodontal and peri-implant diseases is necessary for clinicians to properly diagnose and treat patients as well as for researchers to investigate etiology, pathogenesis, natural history, and treatment of the diseases and conditions. The previous (1999) classification system has been widely utilized for the past twenty years, but since this was developed, substantial new information has emerged about these conditions and diseases. The analysis of this evidence has prompted the development of a new classification framework for periodontitis. This 3-hour lecture-based course will review the proceedings of the World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases and Conditions from 2017, where the former classification was revised and expanded. The diagnosis of gingival health, gingivitis, periodontitis, peri-implant diseases, and other conditions affecting the periodontist using the new classification system will be reviewed using cases and allowing clinicians to implement this into their practice immediately.


Course Objectives:

  • Discuss why a new classification system was needed.
  • Compare and contrast the new classification system to the 1999 classification system and review the major difference between the systems.
  • Be able to classify and diagnose: periodontal health, gingival health, gingivitis, periodontitis, peri-implant health, peri-implant mucositis, peri-implantitis, mucogingival defect, periodontal-endodontic infections and other periodontal disease.
  • Understand the new classification of periodontitis including the staging and grading of periodontal disease.
