Dental Hygiene Diagnosis

Problem Related to Risk Factors or Etiology

1 Plaque 1 Results to calculus -> demineralization ->

2 Periodontitis
2 Due to infrequent dental visits, bacteria,
3 Tobacco
incorrect brushing style, not flossing
4 Mouth breathing
3 Staining, oral cancer, halitosis,
periodontitis, bacteria
4 Xerostomia, higher risk for caries

Planned Interventions
Clinical Education Oral Hygiene Instruction
1 Plaque 1 Brushing at morning and at night
Scaling hard - Describe what it is (sticky Flossing daily
deposit deposits of bacteria)
removal - What does plaque look like
(sticky, clear film, food debris)
Polishing soft - How to remove it
deposit removal (brushing/flossing)
- What it causes (if left to
Fluoride application harden it becomes calculus. If
not cleaned then the gums will
get irritated which leads to

2 Brushing at morning and at night

Flossing Daily
2 Periodontitis Regular Dental Visits
- Describe what it is
(inflammation on gums,
gingival tissue)
- What causes it (accumulation
of plaque/bacteria biofilm
releasing substances that
cause inflammatory reaction as
well as smoking)
- How to halt the progression
- It is not reversible, but can be
stopped from progressing.
3 Brushing at morning and night
Flossing Daily
Tobacco Cessation
3 Tobacco Use of a mouth rinse daily
- What it is (what Is in tobacco,
- Different forms of tobacco
(smokeless, cigarettes, vapors)
- What it causes ( oral cancer,
lung cancer, staining of teeth,
halitosis, tooth loss,
- Ways to stop (Chew sugar free
gum with xylitol, let someone
know you are trying to quit so
that they can encourage you)

Expected Outcomes
Goals Evaluation Method Time
End of
LTG 1: Reduce plaque score below 0.1 1. Take a new plaque score at
every visit
STG: Know what plaque is

STG: Know how to brush properly

STG: Know how to floss properly

End of
LTG 2: Halt Periodontitis treatment
2. Evaluate gums and take
STG: Know what periodontitis is
bleeding score at each
STG: Show how to floss correctly and appointment. Also take
effectively bitewing radiographs once
every six months to monitor
STG: Reduce bleeding score at each bone loss.
LTG 3: Reach tobacco cessation does not
use it all
STG: Be informed of the risks of tobacco
the time,
STG: limit tobacco use to no more than 1X 3. Patient education on we are
a week brushing, flossing, and going to
tobacco cessation. Remind aim for
STG: Limit tobacco use to less than 1 X a tobacco
patient of each topic at each
month cessation
appointment. Be genuinely
sincere and ask patient how by next
he is doing with trying to quit recall
tobacco at each appointment. appointm
Encourage patient and be a ent. (6
fan when he is doing well!!! months)

Prognosis Explain your prognosis

Good *** Patient shows interest in quitting and wants to get on a regular
Fair recall to have his teeth cleaned every six months.
