Applying the new periodontal disease classification (2017) in general dental practice

Hasn’t it always felt like there is a new perio disease classification, or a new one coming soon? Although this is not exactly endodontics, it is still relevant. Apart from anything else, to communicate effectively we all need to talk the same dialect and it looks like this new 2017 classification, produced jointly by the AAP and ESE is here to stay! This is my take on how to make it easy to use in practice.
