Abstract


A significant number of classificatory systems of periodontal diseases have been suggested during the past decades. The classification of periodontitis in young individuals, particularly, has received special attention due to recent modifications made by the American Academy of Periodontology in 1999, changing previous nomenclature used by a long period of time. Thus, the aim of this literature review was to describe and discuss some classificatory terms found in the literature to classify periodontitis in young persons. Additionally, to describe case reports of periodontitis in young individuals aiming at illustrating possible classifications in this patients.
