COURSE DESCRIPTION

In 2018, the American Academy of Periodontology released their new classification system for periodontal conditions. It is now out with the old 1999 classification system and in with the new. Many changes were made, new categories were developed, and language was adjusted for identifying, diagnosing and treatment planning periodontal conditions. For the first time, an implant category was added, which can assist in guiding practitioners in their identification and treatment planning of disease states of dental implants. It is now up to the clinicians to learn this new system and apply its diagnostic criteria in patient treatment planning and record keeping. With so many changes, it can be challenging for private practice clinicians to keep up. This course will present all 4 categories in the new 2018 classification system and guide clinicians in applying this system into their clinical practices.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this course, the dental professional will be able to:

  1. Identify the characteristics of the four categories in the 2018 AAP classification system: #1 – Gingival health and gingival diseases and conditions, #2 – Periodontitis, #3 – Other conditions affecting the periodontium, #4 – Peri-implant diseases and conditions.
  2. Apply the 2018 AAP classification system into their practices with accurate diagnostic language.
  3. Use the classification system to correctly identify a patient’s health or disease state and utilize the patient’s AAP diagnosis to determine appropriate treatment strategies.
  4. Identify a patient’s implant health or disease state through learning the diagnostic criteria set forth by the AAP in the first ever category for implants.

Unlocking the Mystery of Dental Implant Classification & Maintenance

Friday, March 5, 2021     12:30pm – 3:30pm     3 CEUs

DESCRIPTION

This course will discuss the new 2018 American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) classification system as it pertains specifically to dental implants. The life of an implant can vary greatly patient-to-patient. Dental providers who treat patients with dental implants need to be up to date in the periodontal management of their patient’s implant status along the continuum of health and disease. The anatomy and physiology of dental implants will be reviewed as well as the latest research on appropriate implant maintenance in-office products. By increasing your knowledge in the identification of peri-implant health and peri-implant disease, as laid out by the AAP, dental clinicians will be able to customize treatment recommendations for their patients with dental implants.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this course, the dental professional will be able to:

  1. Evaluate implant health and disease after a review of dental implant anatomy and physiology.
  2. Apply the 2018 AAP Staging & Grading for dental implants in dental hygiene care plans.
  3. Select in-office implant maintenance equipment utilizing the most up-to-date research products.
  4. Customize patient education and recommendations based on implant status.
