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.

Periodontal examination

J Dent Res ;67; Table 1 shows the sample’s demographic characteristics. Two sample calculations were performed one using sensitivity and another with specificity and the largest sample size was chosen.

Community periodontal index of treatment needs and prevalence of periodontal conditions. It has also been reported that in some situations periodontal screening instruments may overestimate disease 6,8,14,15,16,17,18, Landry RG, Jean M. This may be the most reasonable explanation for the operational characteristics observed. Utility of Ramfjord index teeth to assess periodontal disease progression in longitudinal studies.

Detailed explanations are given for the evaluation of epidemiological data. Contingency tables were constructed and operational characteristics obtained, as well as ROC curves. The diagnosis provided by the instruments, when evaluated under the kappa statistics, shows the disparity between the two CPITN versions and the gold standard. Correlation of ciptn hydrolysis of benzoyl-arginine naphthylamide BANA by plaque with clinical parameters and subgingival levels of spirochetes in periodontal patients.

Individuals were selected according to availability in local industries, public health centers, public services, rural unions, high schools, the university, and commercial establishments.

It might not be accurate to compare periodontitis undex directly when measured cpiitn the instrument. The advantages of the CPITN procedure have become more evident following 7 years of development and field experience.

J Periodontol ; For the purposes of a BPE, all the teeth in a person’s mouth are divided into sextants i. How to cite this URL: J Dent Res ; To calculate a sample size that would allow all the necessary calculations of operational characteristics of the CPITN, sensitivity and specificity of the index were estimated in a pilot study including 50 randomly selected individuals from the same location.

The CPITN, to some extent, could be considered a partial exam since the main clinical parameter accounting for the diagnosis is the probing depth, and the attachment level is not considered in the diagnosis, although the WHO recommends its use concomitant to the CPITN application.

Recent advances inndex oral health: These points should be considered when evaluating data from studies describing the periodontal health status of populations through these instruments. Conventional therapy Debridement Scaling and root planing Full mouth disinfection Full mouth ultrasonic debridement. Another colored band at 8. Underestimation of periodontitis prevalence was observed in the evaluation of other partial instruments published previously 1,3,24, The information was used to assess the individuals’ periodontal health, and diagnosis based on these data resulted in the gold standard.

The CPITN was intended to provide a global standard for clinical practise and research, but several different periodontal screening tools were adapted from it. View Statistics Show Statistical Information.


At least 2 teeth must be present in a sextant for it to be scored. Relationship between clinical probing depth and reactivity to the BANA ibdex of Samples of subgingival microbiota from patients with periodontitis. Advances in periodontal diagnosis.

Assesment of periodontal disease using the CPITN index in rural population in Ninevah, Iraq

Positive and negative predictive values were J Clin Periodontol ; Benzoyl-DL-arginine napthylamide BANA test is a chair side diagnostic test used to detect the presence of putative periodontal pathogens. Population data collected through the CPITN should be carefully interpreted, especially when drawing conclusions in the field of descriptive periodontal epidemiology targeting public health strategies, service cost studies and service demand estimation.

Several tests or indexes have been developed for this purpose, mainly due to a growing impression of inadequacy in the existing instruments. Full mouth examinations were performed from January to March This assumption is based on the largest area under the ROC curves.

This aspect has been previously discussed by several authors 2,6,24,25, 26,33, Data were entered using Epi Info 6. Apud J Dent Res ; In the clinical care situation the procedure offers a simple screening method for determining the level of intervention required and also a tool for the longitudinal monitoring of disease changes.
