Periodontal diseases as one of the major global epidemics and health burdens markedly affect oral health and closely link to systemic health/general wellbeing, with enormous socio-economic impacts and healthcare costs. A huge challenge facing general dentists is how to successfully manage periodontitis patients for predictable treatment outcomes and long-term health maintenance.

The expert panel of the FDI Global Periodontal Health Project (GPHP) will update you on the latest recommendations, and you will appreciate and understand the critical roles that dentists and patients should play in effective delivery of supportive periodontal care in clinical practice.
This will be followed by the practical guidance on implant maintenance for long-term stability and functioning.
In addition, an effort will be made to understand the wider implications of periodontal diseases in public health and the strategic framework of periodontal healthcare in the public community.
