The problem of classification of periodontal diseases is extremely difficult and complex. When the development of periodontology is analysed it can be seen that different attempts have been made to change not only terminology in periodontology but also classification of periodontal diseases. This frequently resulted in a large number of individual systems of classification, while those that were generally acknowledged appeared during the last ten years. Consequently the aim of this study was to present the latest generally accepted classification, proposed by acknowledged world experts during the International Workshop for Classification of Periodontal Diseases and Conditions, in 1999.
