Status Information


Term Description

This is a clinical examination performed by a dentist or dental hygienist that consists of probing up to 28 teeth at six sites per tooth with a periodontal probe to determine prevalence of periodontal disease. Note from PhenX Oral Health Working Group (WG): There are laptop programs that can be used with this protocol, and the Oral Health WG recommends such a system as it does notify the recorder of correctable errors. An example of a paper data recording form is included as part of this protocol so that the user can see the format of such a data entry system. It also is advisable to have paper forms on hand in case of an electrical failure or some other problem that prohibits use of the electronic data entry system. The periodontal assessment is performed only on participants without need for prophylactic antibiotics. Periodontal attachment levels and bleeding from probing are assessed on all teeth present, except for third molars. Only fully erupted permanent teeth are scored. Six sites from each tooth are assessed: the distal-facial, the mid-facial, the mesial-facial, the mesial-lingual, the mid-lingual, and the distal-lingual.
