Flashcards in Classification Deck (19)
what is step one of classifying periodontitis?
what type of perio disease does the px have?
what are the 10 possible periodontal conditions?
non plaque-induced gingival diseases and conditions
necrotising periodontal dx
periodontitis as manifestation of systemic dx
systemic dx/conditions affecting the periodontal tissues
what are the 3 types of periodontitis?
localised <30% teeth
generalised >30% teeth
molar incisor pattern
periodontitis stage 1
<15% or 2mm interproximal bone loss at worst site
perio stage 2
coronal 3rd of root interproximal bone loss at worst site
perio stage 3
severe (potential for additional tooth loss) mid 3rd of root interproximal bone loss
perio stage 4
very severe (potential for loss of dentition) apical 3rd of root interproximal loss
which stage would you assign a px with teeth lost due to perio?
how do you measure bone loss on bitewings?
measure from CEJ
what does staging measure?
what does grading measure?
perio grade A
<0.5 % bone loss/age (less than half px age)
perio grade B
0.5-1.0 bone loss/age
perio grade C
rapid progression >1.0 bone loss more than age
what are the 3 outcomes of periodontal therapy?
stable case of periodontal health
case with some gingival inflammation
unstable case of recurrent periodontitis
what is included in a diagnostic statement?
type (eg generalised)
stage, grade, status (eg stable)
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
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
