A dental hygienist's perspective of AAP's Comprehensive Periodontal Therapy document
The July issue of the Journal of Periodontology contained a detailed statement from the American Academy of Periodontology on comprehensive periodontal therapy. The Comprehensive Periodontal Therapy Statement provides a detailed overview of the following elements, which the AAP believes constitute efficient and effective periodontal treatment. This statement is intended to serve as a clinical road map for any dental professional who supervises, administers, teaches or regulates the provision of periodontal therapy. This includes dental hygienists who are generally on the front lines of treatment and patient education.
