Conference summary

Periodontitis is a pathology with high prevalence in the population, characterized by the progressive loss of supporting tissue, with clinical evidence of attachment loss and radiographic bone loss. In 2020, the Guidelines for Clinical Practice were published by the European Federation of Periodontology, based on current scientific evidence.

The first stages of periodontal treatment, among other objectives, aim to control the supra and infragingival biofilm. However, the clinical results of subgingival instrumentation may be insufficient to achieve disease stability and, in these circumstances, the treatment plan may include periodontal surgery.

This presentation is intended to address the different stages of periodontal treatment, using the discussion of clinical cases, with special emphasis on the technique and clinical results of resective surgery.
