1

what is step one of classifying periodontitis?

what type of perio disease does the px have?
1-10

2

what are the 10 possible periodontal conditions?

health
plaque-induced gingivitis
non plaque-induced gingival diseases and conditions
periodontitis
necrotising periodontal dx
periodontitis as manifestation of systemic dx
systemic dx/conditions affecting the periodontal tissues
periodontal abscess
periodontal-endodontic lesions
mucogingival deformities/conditions

3

what are the 3 types of periodontitis?

localised <30% teeth
generalised >30% teeth
molar incisor pattern

4

periodontitis stage 1

early/mild
<15% or 2mm interproximal bone loss at worst site

5

perio stage 2

moderate
coronal 3rd of root interproximal bone loss at worst site

6

perio stage 3

severe (potential for additional tooth loss) mid 3rd of root interproximal bone loss

7

perio stage 4

very severe (potential for loss of dentition) apical 3rd of root interproximal loss

8

which stage would you assign a px with teeth lost due to perio?

stage 4

9

how do you measure bone loss on bitewings?

measure from CEJ

10

what does staging measure?

severity

11

what does grading measure?

susceptibility/progression

12

perio grade A

slow progression
<0.5 % bone loss/age (less than half px age)

13

perio grade B

moderate progression
0.5-1.0 bone loss/age

14

perio grade C

rapid progression >1.0 bone loss more than age

15

what are the 3 outcomes of periodontal therapy?

stable case of periodontal health
case with some gingival inflammation
unstable case of recurrent periodontitis

16

what is included in a diagnostic statement?

type (eg generalised)
stage, grade, status (eg stable)
risk factors

17

what is the BPE

a screening tool to guide clinicians to arrive at a provisional diagnosis of periodontal health. no indication of attachment/bone loss

18

what are the options on recording when a BPE sextant scores 3?

sextant reviewed after tx and 6 point chart for that sextant only
6 point for sextant before and after tx

19

how do you arrive at a diagnosis?

medical and dental hx
oral exam
further investigations
