On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH discusses clinical gingival health as it is defined by the 2017 AAP classification systems.
“The key indicator here is that it is imperative for us as the treating clinician to identify, does our patient truly present with pristine health of the periodontium, where there’s no clinical attachment loss whatsoever, or does the patient have a healthy gingival status? Yet we’re seeing some attachment loss? “
“The American Academy of Periodontology very much supports us as clinicians in understanding and identifying the various factors that can contribute to changes in our patients periodontal status.”
