Saving teeth: Changing the hopeless prognosis with new technology

Recent combined efforts of the American Academy of Periodontology and the European Federation of Periodontology resulted in the new Proceedings of the World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions. These changes included labeling tooth and dental implant disease, as well as staging (I–IV), distribution (generalized versus localized), rate of progression, and anticipated response to treatment. While the discussion was comprehensive in its justification for labeling types of diseases, very little was addressed regarding treatment for periodontal disease.

Classically, a tooth affected with greater than 50% bone loss was given a questionable to hopeless prognosis. However, new developments in laser and osteoblastic promotive technologies have surmounted historical restrictions of tissue repair/regeneration around diseased teeth and changed expected outcomes in periodontal treatment for patients who are interested in preserving their natural dentition.
