Abstract: Although our understanding of periodontal disease pathogenesis has improved, periodontal disease remains one of the most common diseases that affects the oral cavity. Diagnosis, and therefore correct management, of chronic and aggressive periodontitis can be challenging. The first and second paper of this three-part series focused on periodontal pathogenesis, periodontal examination and diagnosis and management of chronic and aggressive periodontitis. This third and final paper will discuss two clinical cases putting theory into practice.

Clinical relevance: This paper aims to provide the general dental practitioner with an understanding of diagnosis and management of chronic and aggressive periodontitis using two clinical examples.
