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.

Cpin and coherence of the dataset was systematically evaluated prior to data analysis until a previously determined pattern was achieved. Even the full CPITN version used in the present study, although examining all teeth, could be undex a partial instrument since the multiplicity of sites is not considered for the diagnosis when a single score is applied for cptn sextant. The diagnosis provided by the instruments, when evaluated under the kappa statistics, shows the ccpitn between the two CPITN versions and the gold standard.

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, Bassani reviewed the literature, elaborated the protocol, coordinated field work, collected data, analyzed data, and drafted the manuscript.

The information was used to assess the individuals’ periodontal health, and diagnosis based on these data resulted in the gold standard. It is a screening tool 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.

Int Dent J ; Periodontitis severity and prevalence in this inex 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.


Errors in measuring parameters associated with periodontal health and disease. Since it is known that the feasibility of repeated measurements in healthy dpitn to assess periodontal disease progression is difficult, mainly due to economic, logistic, and statistical reasons, researchers are expected to conducted screening of periodontal disease with the available instruments.

Braz Dent J J Periodontal Res ;19; In the absence of the index teeth, all teeth inded the sextant were examined to generate the score, as in the original CPITN. Only 6 scores are recorded. The best sensitivity values were observed for the severe cutoff point both for the full and partial CPITN.

All these methods use the WHO probe.

Hunt 1 reports an underestimation of periodontitis prevalence when performing half mouth exams. Most periodontitis screening studies using the probing depth as the main clinical parameter have shown overestimated prevalence measures 2,6,24,33, JavaScript is disabled for your browser.

The CPITN is primarily a screening indxe which requires clinical assessment for the presence or absence of periodontal pockets, calculus and gingival bleeding.

Contingency tables cputn constructed to assess sensitivity, specificity, predictive values, likelihood ratios, and test-estimated prevalence prevalence estimated by the instrument.

Benzoyl-DL-arginine napthylamide BANA test is a chair side diagnostic test used to detect the presence of putative periodontal idnex. Methods A cross-sectional study was performed in a small rural population in southern Brazil including individuals over 18 years of age inddx whom disease status was unknown.

Operational characteristics of screening instruments can be assessed by validation studies. 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.

This provides no advantage, since early stages of disease are not diagnosed and will account for an unidentified repressed demand in the years that follow the screening process.

The trend for lower values observed for the partial version of cpirn CPITN in the present study may reflect the fact that only ten teeth contribute to the diagnosis This may be the most reasonable explanation for the operational characteristics observed. BANA hydrolysis and T. Addressed to oral health authorities, the report makes a special effort to identify new methods and technologies that have proved their advantages, xpitn terms of costs as well as effectiveness, and can thus be implemented at the public health inex.

A periodontal examination is a clinical examination of the periodontium gums. Discussion 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.
