  • Step 1 – aims to guide behavior changes, by motivating the patient to successfully remove the supragingival biofilm and to control risk factors;
  • step 2 – “causal therapy” aims to control the biofilm and subgingival tartar through subgingival instrumentation (SRP). In addition, interventions using adjuvant use of physical, chemical and antimicrobial agents with delayed release or host modulation agents can be included;
  • Step 3 – Surgical periodontal therapy;
  • Step 4 – Supportive periodontal therapy, aims to maintain the stability of the periodontium in periodontally treated patients, by combining the preventive and therapeutic interventions defined in steps 1 and 2, at regular time intervals.
