What does PSR code 0 mean?

-Pocket depth <3.5
-no calculus
-No bleeding


What does PSR code 1 mean?

-Pocket depth <3.5
-No calculus
-Bleeding on probing


What does PSR code 2 mean?

-Pocket depth <3.5
-Supra or sub gingival calculus or defective margins detected.


What does PSR code 3 mean?

-Pocket depth 3.5-5.5 mm


What does PSR code 4 mean?

-Pocket depth >5.5 mm


What kind of probe do you use on an implant?

Plastic! Never metal.


When charting recession, the distance from CEJ to gingival margin, if its apical its recorded how? If gingival margins is above CEJ, how is it recorded?

Apical=With a + positive number.
Coronal=Negative - number


What are the millers mobility index? I, II, III?

I: 1st sign of movement greater than normal
II: Movement of crown up to 1mm.
III: Movement more than 1 mm, or vertical movement.


What is the Glickman's furcation classification? I, II, III, IV?

I: No loss of bone, but pocket reaches furcation.
II: Loss of bone in furcation, but not all the way
III: Loss of bone all the way through
IV: Clearly visible furcation all the way through because of gum recession.


On the maxillary first molar, what are the percentages of furcal concavities? Deepest concavity found?

94% MB
31% DB
17% P

Deepest found on MB


On mandibular 1st molars, what are the percentages of concavities ? Deepest concavity found where?

100% on M
99% on D

Deepest on M


Furcation entrance is narrower than what percentage of molars?



What is fremitus?

Movement of tooth when in function.


What is angular bone loss?

Bone loss on one root surface is greater than on the other.


Which type of bone loss (horizontal/vertical) can be regenerated?



What is slight, moderate, and severe radiographic bone loss levels?

Slight= up to 15% of root length loss
Moderate= 16-30% of root length loss
Severe= Greater than 30% of root length loss


What is the treatment protocol?

1. OHI and discussion of treatment plan
2. Scaling, root planing, management of local factors.
3. Re-evaluation and OHI re-inforcement
4. Probing depth resolved-maintenance
5. Probing depth not resolved...Surgery
