Author(s): Lisa Dowst-Mayo, RDH, BSDH, MHA

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, the participants should be able to:

1. Understand dental implant anatomy and physiology as it relates to the evaluation of health status.
2. Be familiar with the 2018 AAP Staging and Grading for dental implants and be able to apply these guidelines to their patients’ implant health.
3. Apply the knowledge gained in this course to customize individual patient implant maintenance programs.


This course will discuss the 2018 American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) classification system as it pertains to dental implants. The life of an implant can vary greatly from patient to patient. Dental providers who treat patients with dental implants need to be up-to-date in the periodontal management of their patients’ implant status along the continuum of health and disease. The anatomy and physiology of dental implants will be reviewed and then applied to the new 2018 AAP classification system. By increasing your knowledge in the identification of peri-implant health and peri-implant disease, as laid out by the AAP, dental clinicians will be able to customize treatment recommendations for their patients with dental implants.
