Abstract

Introduction: The objective of this case report is to illustrate the classification and subsequent diagnosis of periodontitis using the 2017 classification system as recommended in the British Society of Periodontology (BSP) implementation plan. Case report: A case of a 59-year-old patient who attended with a history of periodontitis, who had been successfully treated and maintained for several years is described. Following a full periodontal assessment, the patient was diagnosed with “Generalised periodontitis; Stage IV; Grade C; currently stable”. Conclusion: The present case report exemplifies the use of the 2017 classification system in a successfully treated and well-maintained patient whose treatment need is supportive periodontal treatment. It recognises the fact that by staging and grading, the patient is a highrisk periodontitis patient due to historical disease experience, but also that following successful therapy and maintenance she is currently “stable” with no need for active periodontal therapy.
