Periodontal diseases are often neglected. It can be due to the difficulty to interpret the signs of the pathology itself, but sometimes a not accurate analysis of the patient has been done by a general dentist. It is important to understand and record all the periodontal signs and symptoms. Only after doing that the clinicians are able to prepare a treatment plan comprehensive of the specific periodontal one and all the other dental care needed by the patient.
Periodontal treatment options will be examined from the non surgical therapy up to the surgical approaches to the defects and to the root coverage. Proper guidelines should be known to avoid the mistake of the patient selection in order to understand and expect a proper prognosis of the treatment.
