Clinical practice guideline for the treatment of stage IV periodontitis

David Herrera and Moritz Kebschull, who played leading roles at Perio Workshop 2021 which drew up the EFP clinical practice guideline on the treatment of stage IV periodontitis, explain its importance and potential impact.

During the podcast, professors Herrera and Kebschull talk about the methodology for creating an S3-level guideline, the reason why the complexity of stage IV periodontitis meant that a separate guideline was required, the need for a multidisciplinary approach, and how successfully stage IV periodontitis can be managed.
