A classification system for loss of papillary height is proposed. It uses readily identifiable anatomical landmarks for reference, and sorts the degree of loss into 3 classes. The 3 broad categories allow for a quick descriptive assessment. In addition to the basic classification, it is suggested that additional and incremental description may be included to further define the defects. J Periodontol 1998;69:1124-1126.
