A bar or a Locator implant overdenture?

The new classification of periodontal disease that you, your patient, and your insurance company can understand

Last November, a committee representing the American Academy of Periodontology and the European Federation of Periodontology met with the charge of updating the 1999 classification of periodontal disease and conditions. The Proceedings of the World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions consists of 19 review papers and four consensus reports.

I have written an article that provides a simple summary of the new classification of periodontal disease and peri-implant disease, as well as the staging and progression of periodontitis. You can use this information to explain treatment needs to your patients and any insurance companies.
