This case report describes the comprehensive treatment of generalized, advanced periodontal disease in a young patient. In view of the necessary reconstruction, the extensive destruction of the periodontal tissues required a systematic approach to determine the possibilities and the expectations of the patient.

The long-term treatment result, however, can only be ensured with the full cooperation of the patient and consistent periodontal maintenance care.
