Russell’s Periodontal Indfex & CPITN Probe Seminar For Public Health Dentistry. A periodontal examination is a clinical examination of the periodontium (gums). It is routinely carried out in dentistry and allied specialties. Many different techniques are used around the world. A report by World Health Organization in led to the creation of the Community Periodontal Index of Treatment Needs (CPITN). Use of a special CPITN periodontal probe (or its equivalent) is recommended. For epidemiological purposes in adult populations, 10 specified index teeth are.

Although the specificity values reached higher scores Similares no Google Citados no Google Scholar. From Ondex, the free encyclopedia. The information was used to assess the individuals’ periodontal health, and diagnosis based on these data resulted in the gold standard. Community periodontal index of treatment needs and prevalence of periodontal conditions. Another colored band at 8. Underestimation of periodontitis prevalence was observed in the evaluation of other partial instruments published previously 1,3,24, Methods A cross-sectional study was performed in a small rural population in southern Brazil including individuals over 18 years of age for whom disease status was unknown.

Periodontal examination

J Clin Periodontol ; The CPITN was intended to provide a global standard for clinical practise and research, but several different periodontal screening tools were adapted from it. It might not be accurate to compare periodontitis prevalence directly when measured by the instrument. Instruments for periodontitis screening are commonly applied to populations in epidemiological studies of oral health. Statistical properties of some clinical measures of gingivitis and periodontitis. Clinical parameters as inex of destructive periodontal disease activity.


The analysis of the operational characteristics of the instruments under different severities shows the best balance when the moderate level is chosen as the cutoff. Debridement Scaling and root planing Full mouth disinfection Full mouth ultrasonic debridement. In dental practice all teeth are examined and the highest score for each sextant noted.

The use of probing depth as the clinical parameter for diagnosis in some studies may account for some of the variability. It is a screening ijdex which is used to quickly obtain a rough picture of the periodontal condition and treatment needs of an individual, but it does not provide an exact periodontal diagnosis.

It is routinely carried out in dentistry and allied specialties. Validity of CPITN’s assumptions of hierarchical occurrence of periodontal conditions in a Kenyan population aged years. The efficiency of half-mouth examinations in estimating the prevalence of periodontal disease. The best sensitivity values were observed for the severe cutoff point both for the full and partial CPITN.

Oppermann supervised the literature review, assisted in the elaboration of the protocol, supervised the data analysis, and supervised and contributed to drafting insex the manuscript.

Intra-examiner agreement was assessed through the differences by means plot Stomatol DDR ; The criteria used for periodontitis diagnosis vary greatly, but it is agreed that monitoring the attachment level is the most reasonable way to access activity of periodontal destruction 5,6,7.

Community periodontal index of treatment needs CPITN index is commonly used to measure periodontal disease. Validating a test is necessary for screening, and it has been determined that some of the periodontal screening tests tend to underestimate disease prevalence 1,3,6,8,9,10,11,12, Bacterial profiles of subgingival plaque in periodontitis.

It has a ball end of diameter 0. None, Conflict of Interest: J Periodontol ; Traditional clinical methods of diagnosis. Community periodontal index of treatment needs, benzoyl-DL-arginine napthylamide, chronic periodontitis, putative periodontal pathogens.

Chronic periodontitis Localized aggressive periodontitis Generalized aggressive periodontitis Periodontitis as a manifestation of systemic disease Periodontosis Necrotizing periodontal diseases Abscesses of the periodontium Combined periodontic-endodontic lesions. This is the technique recommended by the British Society of Periodontology since its introduction in Views Read Edit View history. J Nihon Univ Sch Dent ; Consistency and coherence of the dataset was systematically evaluated prior to data analysis until a previously determined pattern was achieved.

The use of screening instruments for periodontitis is not questioned, although the adequacy of the instruments should be considered more carefully. Periodontitis severity and prevalence in this sample were similar to the values observed in similar populations, although the present study used a convenience sample 17,31,32 which could have influenced the predictive values but not the sensitivity and specificity if the prevalence was artificially modified by selection bias.

Figure 1 shows the ROC curves for both versions evaluated herein. The BPE is usually recorded in a table of six boxes see diagram.
