Abstract

A new periodontitis classification scheme has been adopted, in which forms of the disease previously recognized as “chronic” or “aggressive” are now grouped under a single category (“periodontitis”) and are further characterized based on a multi‐di-mensional staging and grading system. Staging is largely dependent upon the severity of disease at presentation as well as on the complexity of disease management, while grading provides supplemental information about biological features of the disease including a history‐based analysis of the rate of periodontitis progression; assessment of the risk for further progression; analysis of possible poor outcomes of treatment; and assessment of the risk that the disease or its treatment may negatively affect the general health of the patient.Necrotizing periodontal diseases, whose characteristic clinical phenotype includes typical features (papilla necrosis, bleeding, and pain) and are associated with host im-mune response impairments, remain a distinct periodontitis category.Endodontic‐periodontal lesions, defined by a pathological communication between the pulpal and periodontal tissues at a given tooth, occur in either an acute or a chronic form, and are classified according to signs and symptoms that have direct impact on their prognosis and treatment.Periodontal abscesses are defined as acute lesions characterized by localized ac-cumulation of pus within the gingival wall of the periodontal pocket/sulcus, rapid tissue destruction and are associated with risk for systemic dissemination.
