A classification scheme for periodontal and peri-implant diseases is necessary for clinicians to properly diagnose and treat patients as well as for researchers to investigate etiology, pathogenesis, natural history, and treatment of the diseases and conditions.

Occlusal adjustment may be defined as thorough selective grinding of teeth surfaces to achieve a more harmonious contact pattern between teeth.
