On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH begins dialog around the 2017 AAP classification systems by talking about the clinical spectrum of health and the first two of the major categories when it comes to diagnosing or identifying periodontal health as pristine periodontal health and a well maintained clinically periodontally healthy case.
“In 2017, the American Academy of Periodontology proposed that there were four distinctive levels of periodontal health, depending on the state of the periodontium itself.”
“…health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
