This presentation will be co-presented by Dr Wendy Gill (periodontist) and Jennine Bywaters (lead therapist) to discuss how to utilise a team approach to managing periodontitis. The new classification of periodontal and peri implant diseases will be presented as a framework for patient and staff education as well as a guide to when referral may be appropriate.

The ultimate success of periodontitis management relies on supportive periodontal therapy or ‘maintenance’. The presentation will explore the benefits of combining the skills of the periodontist and the hygiene team in managing the ongoing susceptibility of periodontitis patients. A maintenance appointment will be described and include the role of Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) in maximising health outcomes.
