Abstract

The objective of this case report is to illustrate the diagnosis and classification of periodontitis according to the 2017 Classification system as recommended in the British Society of Periodontology (BSP) implementation plan.
A 37-year-old female was diagnosed with periodontitis (Molar-Incisor-Pattern), stage III grade C - currently unstable. Several issues pertinent to the diagnosis of localised forms of periodontitis in young patients are discussed in relation to the current and previous classification systems.
Periodontitis can be limited to a few sites and this case highlights the importance of a careful application of the Basic Periodontal Examination (BPE).
