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.

Comparison of various detection methods for periodontopathogenic bacteria: Ainamo J, Ainamo A. Positive predictive value for the reduced version was The scoring is as follows:. Correlation of the hydrolysis of benzoyl-arginine naphthylamide BANA by plaque with clinical parameters and subgingival levels of spirochetes in periodontal patients.

Apud J Dent Res ; Fifty-seven individuals were excluded for not meeting the minimum number of natural teeth. Data were entered using Epi Info 6.

Since it is known that the feasibility of repeated measurements in healthy populations 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.

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.

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.


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

The Community Inex Index of Treatment Needs CPITN proposition in and the rapid acceptance of this instrument provided the scientific community with an enormous amount cptn epidemiological data collected through it. Indian J Dent Res ; Underestimation of periodontitis prevalence was observed in the evaluation of other partial instruments published previously 1,3,24, Hunt 1 reports an underestimation of periodontitis prevalence when performing half mouth exams.

Consistency and coherence of the dataset was systematically evaluated prior to data analysis until a previously determined pattern was achieved.

Abstract To estimate the prevalence of periodontal disease in a rural population and to assess the periodontal treatment needs, a sample of individuals aged between 7 years and 70 years, from three villages in Ninevah Governorate was examined using the community periodental index of treatment needs to assess their periodontal condition. Although the specificity values reached higher scores Dentistry involving supporting structures of teeth Periodontology.

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

The FDI-WHO Joint Working Group 1 on periodontal diseases supports the use of the CPITN as an epidemiological screening procedure for periodontal treatment needs in populations and also, in a modified form for screening and monitoring of individuals by dental practitioners.


Results indicated sensitivity Relationship between the presence or absence of gingival bleeding and the enzymatic BANA test. JavaScript is disabled for your browser. Contingency tables were constructed to assess sensitivity, specificity, predictive values, likelihood ratios, and test-estimated prevalence prevalence estimated by the instrument.

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. Conventional therapy Debridement Scaling and root planing Full mouth disinfection Full mouth ultrasonic debridement. These points should be considered when evaluating data from studies describing the periodontal health status of populations through citn instruments. Stomatol DDR ; Traditional clinical methods of diagnosis. For screening purposes, the CPITN has been reported previously as having better suitability for severe disease diagnosis Operational characteristics of screening instruments can be assessed by validation studies.

The advantages of the CPITN procedure have become more evident following 7 years of development and field experience.

Partial indices as indicators of the severity and prevalence of periodontal disease. For the purposes of a BPE, all the teeth in a person’s mouth are divided into sextants i. The screening tests operated similarly. It has a ball end of diameter 0.
