What are smokers and pregnant women considered on the ASA classification?
What is the most stable assesment for glucose?
What are other glucose tests?
Fasting plasma glucose, postprandial plasma glucsose.
What are the high risk areas in the mouth?
Floor of the mouth, lateral border of the tongue and ventral surface of the tongue.
What is the prevalence of palato radicular grooves on all teeth and on lateral incisors?
All teeth 8.5%. On lateral incisors 4.4%
These teeth have questionable prognossis because they harbor bacteria and you often can't get rid of them.
What are the prevalence of Cervical enamel projections?
Mandibular molars: 28.6%
Maxillary molars 17.0%
Projections of enamel beyond the CEJ to the root. CT can't properly attach to enamel surface so the area is susceptible to bacteria.
What gives color to gingiva?
Vascualrity. Thickness and keratinization. Pigment containing cells.
What happens to the color of ginigiva in disease?
White or red.
What determines to the size of gingiva?
Cellular and intracellular elements.
What happens to the size of gingiva in disease?
Increases and decreases, depending on the stage and the type of disease.
What determines the contour/shape of the gingiva? What happens in disease?
Location of the proximal contact. Loses the knife edge and becomes blunted.
What determines the consistency of gingiva?
Collagenous lamina propria.
What determines the texture of gingiva? Is it an indicator of health?
Epithelial connections. Stippling. No.
Distance from the GM to the base of the pocket.
Distance to which the probe penetrates into the pocket.
In health, where does the probe stop? In disease?
Health: at the apical extent of the junctional epithelium.
Disease: Extends past the apical extent of the junctional epithelium.
What factors influence probing depth?
Inflammation. Probing force. Calculus. Location. Angulation. Probe design.
Clinical Attachment Level.
Distance between the base of the pocket and the CEJ.
What are the classes of mobility under the Miller Index?
Class 1: Mobility > normal.
Class 2: Less than 1 mm of mobility in any direction.
Class 3: More than 1 mm mobility, rotation and depressible.
How does bleeding frequencies predict disease?
If the patient had a bleeding frequency of greater than 75%, it predicts disease is only 24% of the time. It isn't that reliable of an indicatior. HOWEVER, the absence of BOP was a reliable sign of health.
What does suppuration on progbing mean?
A local PMN reaction to an ifection. High specificity and low sensitivity. Meaning, all disease sites don't suppurate, however if there is suppuration it isn't healthy. The predictive value is 40-50% for future attachment loss. ABSENCE OF SUPPURATION IS NOT A GOOD PREDICTOR OF STABILITY.
What is the best way to determine whether or not a site is losing attachments?
COMBINE INFORMATION such as probing depths and BOP.
What is the PSR?
Periodontal Screening and Recording. This is screening the sextants of the mouth and giving each sextant a single score to determine if our patients need a full blown perio exam.
What probe do you use for the PSR?
What do you record during the PSR?
The deepest pocket depth and other findings per sextant.
PSR Code 0
The probe's colored band remains completely visible. Ginigiva is healthy and no BOP. No calculus or defective margins. Only require appropriate preventative care.
PSR Code 1
The colored band is completely visible. No calculus or defective margins. Some BOP. Treatment includes subgingival plaque removal and oral hygiene instructions.
PSR Code 2
Probes band is completely visible. BOP. Supragingival or subgingival calculus and defective margins are found. Treatment is plaque and calculus removal, correction of margins and oral hygiene.
PSR Code 3
Colored band is partially submerged. INDICATION OF COMPREHENSIVE PERIO EXAM (CPE) and charting of the affected sextant to determine the necessary treatment plan. 2 or more sextants of code 3 mean a full mouth CPE.
PSR Code 4
The colored band completely disappears. Depth greater than 5.5. Comprehensive full mouth perio exam is needed.
What numbers do you report for a PSR exam?
For each sextant you forget the lower numbers and only use the highest number for each sextant. You only record and report the maximum code per sextant.
What does an asterisk mean in the PSR?
If you see the following abnormalities: Furcation involvement. Tooth mobility. Mucogingival problems. Gingival recession extending to the colored band of the probe or greater. Regardless of the PSR score, a patient with any of the above need a CPE.
How do you calculate the Clinical Attachment Level?
Probing depth + FGM
Grade I Furca
Grade II Furca
Furcal bone loss, not through and through. You can feel the "roof"
Grade III Furca
Through and through, but not clinically visible.
Grade IV Furca
Through and through and visible clinically.
What do you align the bur with?
The long axis of the tooth.
NO PENDULUM MOVEMENT.
What provides the majority of the resistance and retention form?
The internal form. An oclusal dovetail is used to resist proximal displacement.
What is the ideal degrees of taper?
~16 degrees. Bur alone doesn't provide enough.
When is a occlusal dovetail used and why?
Required for both additional resistance and retention form for 2 surface preparations such as MO or DO. It mechanically locks it in.
Draw, Line of Draw and Draw Variance
Line of draw is the path it takes. If the daw and line of draw aren't the same, then you have draw variance. This becomes a problem in the proximals because you block yourself out with the adjacent tooth.
What is the Entrant Angle?
The angle where the occlusal wall joins the proximal wall. It is the only occlusal angle which MUST be beveled. Formed at the point angle created by the primary bevel, secondary bevel and the occlusal surface. Beveled at a 45 degree angle using the 7901 bur.
The Occlusal Bevel
Not routinely placed because you need a gold margin angle of 30-45 degrees. Not placed unless the restoration will benefit.
What is the Full-tapered Slice Box?
The proximal surface is "sliced" with a "safe-sided" diamond disk. It is an aggressive reduction.
What is the modified bevel?
Used at UCSoDM. Performed with diamond points or finishing burs. There is a continuity of proximal bevel and gingival bevel.
What is the proper secondary bevel?
An exaggerated bevel angle. There is greater reduction at the occlusal than the gingival.
What is a common mistake when making the proximal bevel?
Failure to correctly remove the proximal tooth surface resulting in an undercut.
Where do you remove more tooth structure?
More tooth structure at the occlusal than the gingival.
What degree should the bevel be placed to permit a gold margin at the gingival bevel? What tools are used?
30-45 degrees. Gingival margin trimmer, needle, flame finishing or diamond bur.
Where do you place depth cuts and how do you know how deep?
Lingual incline of the buccal cusp and buccal incline of the lingual cusp. Depth determined by cusp being reduced, whether or not it is a functional cusp.
What should the buccal shoulder wall be parallel to?
The lingual occlusal wall of he inlay preparation. Tilting the bur too far toward the lingual will reduce retention form. The further away you are from parallel, the less the retention.
What are the dimensions of the buccal shoulder?
Should follow the flow of the cusps. The axial depth should be 1 to 1.5.
When are onlays indicated?
When you have a previous shallow restoration that ruins the occlusal structure of the tooth.
What is a provisional restoration?
An interim restoration placed in/on a tooth preparation during the fabrication of the final restoration.
What is the purpose of provisional restorations?
Pulp protection. Hard and soft tissue protection. Prevent tooth movement. Esthetics. Strength and rigidity to withstand functional forces.
What is IRM?
A powder and a liquid reinforced with zinc oxide and eugenol. 1:1 ratio. Mix on a paper or parchment pad. NO GLASS OR PLASTIC SLAB.
What is important to remember when preparing the matrix?
LUBRICATE the band, but NOT the preparation.
What is the consistency you want for your IRM?
It needs to be rolled into a ball with your gloved fingers without sticking.
Do you overfill IRM?
No. put powder on the tip of the condenser.
Do you use rotary instruments with IRM?
No. easy to destroy margins.
Cortical bones lining the walls of the socket. Also called bundle bone or cribriform plate. Presence or absence is not an indicator of disease, but presence is an indicator of health.
The healthy distance from the CEJ to the Alveolar Crest is 1-2 mm. Greater than 2 mm means periodontal bone or attachment loss.
Radiolucent line that runs around the teeth that denotes the space. Can just be an artifact, isn't a reliable indicator of disease.
The spiderweb. Isn't an indicator of periodontal disease, but it does react to excessive forces on teeth.
Seen in maxillary. Infections can cause problems due to proximity. Can arise both from the teeth and the sinus.
Dependent on the proximal contours of teeth. You want it to be within 1-2 mm of the CEJ. Can be used to determine what type of bone loss is occurring.
What percent of bone loss needs to be present to be visualized radiographically?
30-50 % of bone mineral needs to be destroyed.
How long before you can see the bone loss radiographically?
Clinical attachment loss precedes radiographic bone loss by 6-8 months.
How much do x-rays underestimate bone levels and defect depths by?
Approximately 1.4 mm.
Horizontal Bone Loss
When you connect the CEJ's of adjacent teeth, look to see if the alveolar crest lines are parallel.
Vertical Bone Loss
Alveolar crest is NOT parallel to the lines connecting the CEJs. Favorable for regenerative procedures.
Circumferential bone loss
Considered a type of vertical bone loss. Wraps around the tooth like a half moon. Isn't always visible on a radiograph.
You can see a small dark space at the furcation area. Usually underestimate damage on radiographs. It is very hard to diagnose a furcation invasion. It takes a combination of clinical and radiographs. But even together, it is still very low percentage of diagnosis.
What is the Furcation Arrow?
A small triangular radiographic shadow across the mesial or distal roots of the maxillary molars. It is a helpful diagnosis indicating furcation involvement. (Grad II or III, but never I). Absence does NOT mean absence of furcation involvement. Presence is a good indicator absence is not a sign of health.
Bottom line, what is the best way to diagnose a furcation?
Radiographs, clinical probing and furcation sounding with anesthesia should all be used together to correctly diagnose furcation invasion.
Even if calculus is not present on a radiograph, it does't mean it isn't in the patients mouth.
Look for overhang. 32-90% have restoration overhangs. Overhanging amalgams are associated with bone loss. Removal of amalgam overhangs during periodontal initial therapy reduce gingival inflammation.
Molar Root Trunk Length
Distance from the CEJ until the point that roots divide. Takes longer to expose the furcation, the longer the root.
Maxillary Root Trunk Length
Long- Greater than 5 mm
Mandibular Root trunk length
Long-Greater than 4 mm
Crown to Root Ratio
The larger the root, the more support you have.
The closer roots are to each other, the thinner the bone and the faster the progression of disease because you have less bone to lose.
What are the signs of trauma from occlusion?
Widened PDL. Decreased definition of the lamina dura. Bone loss. Altered trabeculation. Hypercementosis. Root fractures or cemental tears.
What are signs of implant failure?
Clinical mobility. Radiographic peri-implant radiolucencies. More than 0.2 mm of annual bone loss following the first year. Pain, infection, paresthesia or violation of the mandibular canal.
Why is panoramic radiography have a limited use in periodontics?
Underestimates small osseous defects. More accurate with moderate destruction, but overestimates severe bone loss.
What is subtraction radiography?
Requires two identical images that you overlap the densities and compare bone loss. Used mostly in research. Can detect a 0.5 mm change, but error happens when there is differences in the alignment of images.
What are the potential applications of subtraction radiography in periodontics?
Detection of bone loss in active periodontal disease and implants. Detection of bone apposition in regeneration. Detection of early bone changes that occur following a root fracture.
CT scan. Uses x-rays to generate detailed images of slices of the body. High radiation exposure.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography
A lot less exposure than conventional CT scan and a lot higher resolution. Used in implant cases.
What are the magnification of radiographs?
7% for periapicals and bitewings. 26% for panoramic radiograph. Panoramic has greater magnification and is not used for diagnosis.
Every 1-2 years. Used in adolescents to diagnose caries.
Every 2 years. Used over the age of 30. Use to diagnose periodontal disease and periapical pathology.
Screening tool for all age groups. Single film survey.

When do you use a panorex?
For periodontal screening, 3rd molar presence, implant diagnostics, impacted teeth, pathology evaluation.
What do you use for single site implant imaging?
Periapical or CBCT.
What do you use for multiple site implant imaging?
X-rays during pregnancy.
Most desirable to not have irradiation during pregnancy especially during the first trimester. The protective apron renders fetal radiation virtually immeasurable. Use x-rays selectively and only when necessary.
What are the limitations of radiographs?
2-D view of a 3-D structure. Does not show presence or absence of periodontal pockets (soft tissue). Only suggests morphology of bone deformities. No info on tooth mobility. Can't distinguish treated from untreated cases. Position and condition of facial or lingual structures is obscured. Does not demonstrate soft-tissue-to-hard-tissue relationships. Doesn't show success or failure of treatment. RADIOGRAPHS MUST BE SUPPLEMENTED BY CAREFUL CLINICAL EXAMINATION.
What is the primary factor in periodontal disease?
PLAQUE. Always present, but not sufficient to cause periodontist by itself. It needs contributing factors.
What is the composition of plaque?
80% water. Microbes. Host cells. Glycoproteins. Inorganic materials and polysaccharides.
What are the steps of plaque formation.
Scaffold of glycoproteins forms on the acquired pellicle. Initial colonizers begin colonization by attaching to the scaffold. Proliferation. Aggregation with other microbes. Alteration of composition.
What are some past beliefs of what caused periodontal disease?
Normal aging. Necrosis of infected bone. Systemic disease. Disharmony of occlusion. Calculus or hard toothbrushes.
Non-specific plaque hypothesis
Noxious products from plaque. It isn't a specific bacteria, but the amount of plaque. Volume overwhelms the host. Control accumulation and you control the disease. QUANTITY.
Specific Plaque Hypothesis
Only certain plaque is pathogenic. Specific organisms carry the pathogenicity and mediate the destruction of host tissues. QUALITY.
What hypothesis is most of our current treatment based off of?
Non-specific. Eliminate plaque=eliminate disease. However, we now believe there is more to the process than either hypothesis answered.
Describe the pathogenesis of periodontal disease.
Bacteria colonize the sulcus. Plaque QUANTITATIVELY increases. QUALITATIVE shift to G- anaerobes. Inflammatory mediators release resulting in inflammation.
What are the three phases of inflammation?
Vascular phase: Blood vessels proliferate increasing blood supply, capillary permeability and GCF.

What is calculus?
A secondary factor. Always coated with plaque. It is a calcification of bacterial plaque. Porous. Attaches to tooth. Broadens the sphere of influence of plaque.
Impedes OH (oral hygiene). Niche for bacteria. Forms rapidly. Heterogenous crystals. Mineralized by saliva.
Hard. Tenacious. Niche for bacteria. Extends the radius of bacterial destruction. Slowly forming. Homogenous crystals. Mineralized by GCF.
Dose dependent risk factor. Consumption, duration and lifetime exposure associated.

Can be primary or secondary trauma. It doesn't initiate the diseases, but does play a secondary role in the progression of disease.
LOA, gingival recession and loss of tooth structure. Hard brush and horizontal scrub motion are the bad guys.
Occur in 32-90 percent of patients. Reduces ability to perform OH adequately. Not a problem if greater than 5 mm from the bone. Greater bone loss if greater than 20% of interproximal surface.
Open contacts and food impaction.
OC are correlated to FI and FI is correlated to PD but because OC is not correlated to PD. There are steps in between.
At what grade of Cervical Enamel Projections do you expect attachment loss?
If there is furcation invasion, AL is associated.
What percent of molars have Cervical enamel projections?
Where are enamel pearls most often found?
Maxillary 2nd and 3rd molars.
How do enamel pearls contribute to Periodontal disease?
No CT attachment to pearls. Associated with furcation invasions.
On 4.4% of maxillary laterals. "highway" for bacteria. Associated with increased GI, PD, Pl and mobility.
Periodontal healing impaired over age of 30. Greater incidence of intrabony defects greater than 4 mm distal to 2nd molars over the age of 26. Early removal is beneficial.
Marginal ridge discrepancies
MRD in posterior teeth is correlated with increased pd, loa, pi, gi and calculus. Health maintainable with good OH and treat with orthodontics.
Increase in PI, GI and PD with non aligned surfaces. Health maintainable with good OH.
Fractures or perforations. Endodontic stripping. Restorative pin placement.

Phytoin. Cyclosporin. Calcium Channel blockers.
What is the current disease model?
Bacteria, environment and host factors all work together to cause disease.
Plaque induced vs. Non-plaque induced gingival diseases.
Plaque induced is caused by plaque only and is modified by systemic factors, medication and malnutrition. Non-plaque induced originates from a specific bacteria, virus, fungus or is genetic. It can be gingival manifestations of systemic conditions, traumatic lesions and foreign body reactions.
Gingivitis associated with dental plaque only.
Most common form. Clinically there is variable color, size, shape, and consistence of the gingiva. Clinically there is erythema, edema, bleeding, ulceration. Rolled gingival margins, loss of stippling and change in composition of plaque.
Gingivitis associated with dental plaque and local factors.
Malocclusion, open bite/mouth breathing, oral habits, deviated septum. Clinically there is dry gingiva, shiny erythmatous surface. Rolled gingival margins. Gingival bleeding loss of stippling.
What are some systemic factors associated with the endocrine system that affect gingival disease?

How do you now characterize periodontitis?
Extent, severity, type.
Slow process, but not always. Most common and can see at any age. Can be localized or generalized. Increase in severity and prevalence with age. Local factors can make to disease more severe. Normal host immune response.
Localized or generalized. Prevalence in 0.9-17%. Rapid, severe periodontal destruction. Local factors often do not commensurate with disease severity. Pathogens are often different from CP. Abnormal host immune response. The primary diagnostic criteria are: Rapid progression. No relevant systemic disease. Familial aggregation.

Functional or Physiologic Dentition
A dentition which has adequate number of teeth without the aid of prosthetic reconstruction to maintain the health, comfort, function and esthetics of the patient.
Importance of prognosis
How treatment modalities and resources are utilized. Keeps the patient's expectations realistic. Financial impact on the therapist.
An evaluation of the course of disease WITHOUT treatment.
The forecast for success of the prosthodontic restoration given the anticipated results of the periodontal treatment and the periodontal health status obtained.
And evaluation of the course of the disease WITH treatment.
Assumptions: We perform the most appropriate and predictable therapy. Patient maintains good OH and complies with treatment recommendations.
None to slight attachment/bone loss. Probing depths of 4 mm or less. No mobility to class I mobility. No furcation involvement.
Slight to moderate attachment/bone loss. Probing depth of 4-6 mm. Class I mobility. Grade I to shallow grade II furcation

Severe attachement/bone loss. Grade III furcation with poor access. Class II to III mobility. Poor crown/root ratio. Root proximity problems.
Prognosis as a function of time.
Can be for overall dentition or individual teeth. Short term: 1-5 years. Long term: 5-10 years.
What factors influence the prognosis of functional dentition?
1. Plaque control and maintenance therapy.
2. Age. Better prognosis for the elderly because younger people have a longer time period that you need the teeth to last.
3.History of the disease and the rate of progression.
4. Systemic factors such as drugs and diabetes.
5. Contributing factors such as calculus, traumatogenic occlusion, malposed teeth/uneven marginal ridges, overhangs/ poor margins, frenum pull, smoking, strategic value of the tooth.
What factors influence the prognosis of the individual teeth.
1. Periodontal support or defect morphology.
2. Probing depth.
3. Furcations. Grade III is hopeless. The only way you can save them is if they have access to clean and prevent root carries.
4. Local anatomy. Tori/exostoses, external oblique ridge. Shallow vestibular depth.
5. Root sensitivity.

Includes plaque control. Supragingival and subgingival scaling and root planing. Chemical agents, systemic abx, local drug delivery. Host modulation.
Why use NSPT?
Reduction of inflammation and improvement of clinical parameters. May decrease or eliminate the need for surgery.
Modified Bass Technique
Gumline at 45 degree angle. Bristles should contact both gums and teeth. No technique has been proven to be superior.
How far subgingivally do the bristles extend?
0.5-1.0 mm below the gingival margin. Recently found that plaque may advance as far as 0.8 mm into the pocket in 1 year.
Are powered brushes as effective as manual brushes?
Improved plaque removal ranged from 1.5 times better than the manual on mid-tooth labial surfaces (anterior teeth) to 11.9 times better in the interproximal lingual surfaces (anterior teeth)
How well do our patients clean their dentition?
The oral hygiene efforts of most patients result in only an approximate 50% of reduction of plaque from baseline values during and after active therapy.
How far subgingivally will an interdental brush clean?
As far as 2-2.5 mm below the gingival margin.
Brush/floss compared to brush/interdental brush.
Brush removes plaque more consistently.
Waxed vs. Unwaxed
No significant difference.
Evidence of superiority, but there were no significant treatment differences between it and traditional floss. Traditional reduced 8.2-22.9% while powered reduced 19%.
Minimal penetration of pocket (0.2 mm) and minimal application of time.
Bisbiguanide compound. Most effective antiplaque agent. No systemic toxicity. Broad action for G- and + organisms. Staining and taste alterations are local side effects reported. Good because there is a prolonged persistence of antimicrobial action (substantivity). Adheres to the tooth and is released over a period of time. Used post oral surgery. Mentally and physcally handicapped. Those predisposed to oral infections. High risk caries patients. Recurrent oral ulcerations. Appliance wearers. Denture stomatitis. Oral malodor. Pre-operative rinsing and irrigation. Subgingival irrigation.
Limitations of supragingival plaque control alone.
You need to remove subgingival plaque and calculus in order to see significant clinical improvement.
Instrumentation of the crown and root surfaces of the teeth to remove plaque, calculus and stains.
A treatment designed to remove surface dentin that is rough, impregnated with calculus or contaminated with toxins or microorganisms.
SCALING. D1110. Can be used when gingivitis is present.
Scaling and rootplaning.
Instrumentation of the crown and root surfaces to remove plaque and calculus. Indicated for patients with periodontal disease. THERAPEUTIC NOT PROPHYLATIC. Has to be some loss of attachment otherwise there would be no exposed root surface to plane. D4341/D4342
Why do scaling and root planing?
Remove endotoxin. Remove plaque and calculus, disrupt the subgingival biofilm. Reduce inflammation and pocket depth.
Probing depth less than 3 mm
89% plaque free.
Probing depth 3-5 mm
61% plaque free
Probing depth greater than 5 mm
11% plaque free.
Probing depth 1-3 mm
86% calc free
Probing depth 4-6 mm
43% calc free
Probing depth greater than 6 mm
32% calc free
What are my limitations?
In PDs averaging 6.2 mm the maximum depth free of plaque and calculus is 3.73. Limit of instrumentationion 6.21 mm
Hand vs sonic and ultrasonic scalers
Similar periodontal healing respons. Less time is spent with ultrasonic/sonic and produce less tooth surface loss, have better access to deep pockets and furcation areas but the tactile sensitivity is reduced.
Sc/RP on PD and AL.
Decreases inflammation and increases AL. Decrease and qualitative shift in bacteria. Healing is by the formation of a long junctional epithelium.
How much clinical improvement can we expect?
Initial PD 4-6 mm--->AG of 0.23 mm and Decrease in PD of 0.96 mm.
Initial PD of greater than 7 mm---> AG of .91 mm and Dec. PD of 2.2 mm.
Furcation entrance diameter.
81% less than 1 mm. 58% less than 0.75 mm. We are using instruments loo large to enter the furcation and clean it.
Ultrasonics are better when there is a smaller furcation. No difference in a larger furcation.
Should reach entire pocket and maintained long enough at a sufficient concentration. The crevicular fluid outflow is very high. and the pocket fluid replacement rate is 40x/hr.
Limitations of irrigation.
1.8 mm depth at margin. Only .2 mm by rinsing alone. Lack of lateral spread.
Conclusions on irrigation
Microorganisms rebound in pocket within 1-8 weeks. Irrigation in conjunction with Sc/RP may or may not produce an additive effect. 50% is eliminated in 12.5 min. THERE IS STRONG EVIDENCE FOR LACK OF AN ADJUNCTIVE BENEFIT.
Systemic Abx plus Sc/RP
Impossible to eliminate all pathogens by mechanical therapy. Multiple bacterial reservoirs in the oral cavity increase the likelihood of reinfection. Quadrant by quadrant therapy allows reinfection of treated sites by untreated sites.
Systemic vs. Local
Advantages: Simple and easy to multiple sites. Eliminate pathogens on extra-dental sites. Reduces risk for future translocation.
Disadvantages: Can't get high GCF concentrations. Risk of adverse reaction. Increased selection of multiple abx resistant microorganisms.
Criteria of effective agents
reach site. Sustain high enough concentration for a long enough time. Kill or inhibit pathogens. Don't harm host.
Broad spectrum penicillin.
Bacteriocidal: beta lactam inhibition of cell wall cross linking. Leading to cell death by osmotic lysis.
People are allergic.
Amoxicillin and Metronidazole for aggressive periodontitis.
Amoxicillin + Clavulanate for refractory periodontal disease.
Broad. Bacteriostatic. Bind 30s ribosome. Effective against G+ aerobes and anaerobes. Several types that are cross reactive. High concentration in GCF. Long term use creates resistance
Bacteriocidal. Uniquely effective against anaerobes. Not big effect against facultative and aerobic bugs.
Resistance is slow to develop except for P.g. in biofilms.
Adverse effect with alcohol. Could be teratogenic.
Used to treat NUG, pericoronitis, apical infections, alveolar osteitis and osteomyelitis.
Broad Specturm and Oral contraceptives
Chronic: Short term benefit.
Aggressive: Better clinical response.
Who benefits most?
Deep pockets. Refractory patients. Systemically compromised patients. Acute periodontal. Aggresive periodontitis. Peri implantitis.
Actisite Tetracycline FIber
6 mm PD. Esthetic zone. May enhance scrp at non responding sites.
10% doxycycline hyclade in gel. Refrigerate and removed 15 min prior to mixing. Inhibits proteases stimulated by smoking. Neutralize the neutrophil oxidative burst.
2.5 mg chlorhexadine. gelatin matrix. controleld release. Don't use for abcesses. Attachment gain was greater for ScRP alone and there was greater recession for ScRP + Periochip. No statistical significance.
minocycline HCL 1 mg. Polymer in powder form. No refrigeration. NO dressing. No mixing. 2 year shelf life.
PD greater than 5 mm with persistent BOP. Not a surgical candidate. Refuses surgery. Smoker. Unregenerable site. Esthetic zone. MAINTENANCE PATIENT.
