Event Details

Dr Tami Yap
Hear a collection of clinical alveolar anecdotes for learning about non-microbiome mediated gingival pathology.

Dr Fiona Chan
Receive an overview of the 2017 classification of periodontal and peri-implant diseases and conditions, and key changes from the 1999 classification. For
the first time, a definition for periodontal health has been introduced, and a new
staging and grading system for the classification of periodontitis has been
adopted. In addition, case definitions for peri-implant health and disease have
been outlined. This presentation will demonstrate the implementation of the
new classification scheme for periodontal and peri-implant diseases and conditions

Dr Simone Belobrov
As a dental practitioner, it is likely that some of your patents will present with
oral health issues associated with various sexual practises and recreational drug
use. Sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise and can have oral manifestations.
Learn the signs and symptoms these patients can present with.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify aetiologies of gingival and alveolar presentations of other than microbiome mediated disease.
  • Identify key changes from the 1999 classification of periodontal diseases and conditions
  • Apply the classification framework for periodontitis based on the new staging and grading system
  • Gain an understanding of the new classification for peri-implant health, peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis
  • Implement the new classification scheme for periodontal and peri-implant diseases and conditions in daily clinical practice.
  • Have an increased awareness of oral manifestations of sexually transmitted diseases
  • Recognise the non-odontogenic presentation of illicit drug use
