Classification of Periodontal disease: The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) has published the official proceedings from the 2017 World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions. These proceedings provide a comprehensive update to the previous disease classification established at the 1999 International Workshop for a Classification of Periodontal Diseases and Conditions.

This is the only split mouth randomized control multi-center study available for LANAP that I have come across. It compares: 1. Sc/RP with an attempt not to injure the connective tissue attachment; 2. Sc/RP with laser and surgical perforation of the PDL (LANAP); 3. Sc/RP with replaced flaps (modified Widman flap surgery) and 4. coronal scaling only. Unfortunately it does NOT compare LANAP to osseous surgery for defect elimination and apically positioned flaps or with regenerative therapy which are more commonly accomplished in our office. This Millenium supported study is not apparently published in any major dental journals. Findings seem to indicate all therapies produce similar clinical results.
