This course provides a historical perspective along with a short and long-term follow up of cases. Establishing an accurate periodontal prognosis is paramount to case success. Prognosis is often thought of as being “static,” established once, and never to change. However, proper periodontal therapy can alter a tooth’s prognosis, if done in time. This course will show both short and long-term cases where prognosis has changed during therapy.

Course Topics:

  • Identify the clinical factors used in assigning prognosis
  • Understand the historical research that leads to the modern day
    concept of prognosis
  • Define the new concept of periodontal diseases and host
    susceptibility as factors used in determining prognosis
