In 2010, while the effectiveness of periodontal disease treatments has been proven for many years, a conundrum remains:

Should we believe that periodontology still belongs to the category of experimental sciences?

Should we give up in the face of the magnitude of the task of managing patients' periodontal disease over the long term?

This paper aims to demonstrate that one does not need to be an expert in microbiology or immunology to treat most patients' periodontitis.
