Periodontitis is the number one cause of tooth loss in the United States for adults thirty years and older. Periodontal disease affects over seventy-five to eighty percent of adults, and more recently has been found to have major implications for systemic health especially for patients with diabetes and high blood pressure. In 2017 the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) and the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) collaborated to create a new classification for periodontal disease and peri-implant diseases. The goal of this revised edition is to review this classification and contrast it to the 1999 classification as well as evaluate its impact on periodontal diagnosis, prognosis and therapy. Understanding Periodontitis not only reviews the categories of periodontitis, but also provides a detailed informative resource on diagnosing, categorizing and treating periodontitis. By utilizing illustrations as well as actual pictures of various procedures, it works well also as an interactive informative hand book that dentists, hygienists, as well as dental patients alike will benefit from to better understand periodontal disease.

Their dentist is often too busy to present all the different choices one has, and doesn't have the time to explain in detail what needs to be done. People have a fear of the unknown and a fear of dentistry is common. We all are concerned with doing what is best for us and our family while trying to keep costs down. There are many aspects of basic dental care we do not understand. The idea of when to see a dentist and if I go will I have pain are just some of the universal concerns. Here, in one book, are the answers we need.

Dental hygiene professionals need the very best scientific and clinical knowledge at their fingertips to effectively assist in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease. Periodontology puts the needs of hygienists center stage, providing a detailed and brilliantly illustrated reference for daily practice, and a wealth of knowledge to underpin successful diagnosis and treatment. A firm grasp of the pathogenesis of periodontal disease is essential for the hygienist. This book clearly outlines the vital concepts in immunology, genetics and destruction and repair of periodontal tissues. The innovations and new scientific evidence in these fields are lucidly described and invoke new approaches to etiology, diagnosis and treatment. The importance of links between oral health and general systemic health cannot be overestimated. Periodontology conclusively demonstrates the necessity for patient and clinician to keep these associations to the forefront of risk assessment and treatment. The benefits of this integrated approach will be clearly seen in the focus on prevention of oral disease, a primary objective for all hygiene professionals. The book shows how the systemic considerations influence the combination of diagnostic, therapeutic, pharmacological and mechanical treatment strategies. Frequently encountered disorders such as gingival recession and pathological changes in the peridontium are comprehensively documented and the range of prevention and treatment options set out. The inclusion of specialized subjects such as oral manifestations of HIV disease and the developments in its treatment serve to underline the key position of the hygienist in the wider health care team. The exceptional color photos throughout will be an indispensable guide to clinicians and students, and indeed a welcome resource for educators. From diagnostic tools such as depictions of levels of bleeding right through to detailed instrumentation techniques, these photos and their concise accompanying text form an outstanding best-practice guide. Concluding with the American Academy of Periodontology's Classification of Periodontal Disease, Periodontology will augment the knowledge and skills of dental hygienists, keeping practitioners up to date and providing students with the essential knowledge base for a career in periodontics.
