1

The gingival plaque description should match the ___ __

periodontal chart

2

To described the extent of gingiva as localized what percentage must show this sing

<30 % of teeth

3

How do you calculate extent of gingival health

# teeth exhibiting clinical signs of inflammation/#total teeth the patient has in their mouth

4

Separate flecks of plaque at the cervical margin of the tooth

1: Light

5

A thin continuous band of plaque (up to one mm) at the cervical margin of the tooth

2: (LIGHT/ MODERATE depending on thickness)

6

A band of plaque wider than one mm but covering less than one-third of the crown of the tooth

3: Moderate

7

Plaque covering at least one-third but less than two-thirds of the crown of the tooth

4: Heavy

8

Plaque covering two-thirds or more of the crown of the tooth

5: Heavy

9

GI Code Criteria
0Normal
1 Mild Inflammation
2 Moderate Inflammation w/BOP
3 Severe Inflammation w/ BOP

0: Gingival tissues appear pink and healthy. No bleeding.
1: Slight change in color OR slight edema. No bleeding on probing
2: Redness and edema And/Or bleeding on probing
3: Marked redness, edema, ulceration and extends into the attached gingiva with tendency for spontaneous bleeding

10

GI Calculation=

Total score/ #of teeth x 4 = ___ Decimal

11

how many areas are examined for each tooth with Loe and Silness Gingival Index - bleeding measurement

4 gingival areas
-MB
-B
-DB
-L

12

PI stands for

Plaque Index

13

O'Leary plaque Index purpose

Measures if plaque is present or not and gives an overall % of plaque present in the mouth for individual motivation and instruction. 6 surfaces per tooth

14

Total # of surfaces w/plaque / # of surfaces x 100 = ___ %

PI:

15

After preforming a plaque index with disclosing solution there is pink/red and purple/blue color what do each mean

Pink/Red= newer plaque
Purple/Blue = Older plaque

16

After prefomring a plaque index you find color/plaque on the IP surfaces what home care would you recommend

Lack of interdental care/effectiveness

17

After prefomring a plaque index you find color/plaque on the straight B, L, F surfaces what home care would you recommend

Lack of tooth brushing/effectiveness

18

Why care about the PI/GI

*** Drives further oral hygiene instruction and health promotion for the patient's individualized care plan (treatment plan)

19

Risk factors for periodontal disease

Poor oral hygiene
Bleeding on probing
