2018 AAP Periodontal Classification & Radiographs Workshop

November 18, 2022

The learning objectives are:

  • Describe the dental & dental hygiene college’s “Scope of Practice” on radiographs
  • Compare the changes between the 1999 & 2018 AAP Periodontal Disease Classification
  • Evaluate the characteristics of the periodontal conditions in the new global 2018 AAP Periodontal Classification
  • Analyze radiographs required to screen for 2018 AAP Periodontal Conditions
  • Assess radiographs required for both a comprehensive Dental & Dental Hygiene Diagnosis 

Course Summary:

“ALARA”,  an acronym for “As Low as Reasonably Achievable.” It means making every reasonable effort to maintain exposures to ionizing radiation as far below the dose limits as practical for a diagnosis & evaluation. So, what is too low?  In this workshop we discuss what is considered reasonable, too low of a dose and what the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) has to say regarding the 2018 AAP Periodontal Classification and Radiographs needed to screen for all periodontal conditions.
