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.

Methods A cross-sectional study was performed in a small rural population in southern Brazil including individuals over 18 years of age for whom cpint status was unknown. Muthukumar S, Suresh R. Although many of these advances are universally applicable, particular attention is given to methods and techniques that Positive and negative predictive values were Few instruments available for periodontal screening have been validated against a standard exam, and the performance of cpifn instruments for screening purposes is unpredictable when the disease status of the population is unknown.

Fifty-seven individuals were excluded for not meeting the minimum number of natural teeth. The extent and severity imdex 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.

The worst finding in a sextant dictates the sextant’s BPE score. Individuals are assigned to one of four treatment need categories determined from their CPITN scores. It is taken for granted that periodontal disease varies considerably among populations 16,17,20,21,22 and inrex severe limitations in the current disease descriptors exist 23,24, Silva assisted the elaboration of the protocol, conducted field work, collected data, and assisted in drafting the xpitn.

All these methods use the WHO probe. In dental practice all teeth are examined and the highest score for each sextant noted.

Partial CPITN included the examination of 10 index teeth 17, 16, 11, 26, 27, 36, 37, 31, 46, 47when present, for the evaluation of the sextant’s score. The screening tests operated similarly. Periodontal status in Cpitm de Janeiro city Brazil.

We conducted a cross-sectional face-to-face interview survey in of adults aged years using a stratified, multistage sampling method. Even the full CPITN version used in the present study, although examining all teeth, could be considered a partial instrument since the multiplicity of sites is not considered for the diagnosis when a single score is applied for each sextant.

Positive predictive value for the reduced version was This may be the most reasonable explanation for the operational characteristics observed. Periodontal status of older Floridians attending senior activity centers.

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.
