Periodontal Case Type: 2 Plaque Score: = 3.3% Bleeding Score: 9.5% (poor)

Gingival Inflammation: Generalized - Marginal

Biofilm: moderate Generalized
Biofilm Retentive Features/Predisposing Factors: Calculus, Malpositioned teeth, caries, nutrition, defective contact, mouth
breathing, tobacco use

Dental Hygiene Diagnosis

Problem Related to Risk Factors or Etiology

(1) Periodontal Case 2 (1) Plaque buildup, calculus, poor brushing/flossing habits, diet,
high bacteria count, moderate recession #14L, #24L, #25L

(2) Poor home care habits, uneducated about what causes

plaque buildup and how it harms the oral cavity and how to
properly remove plaque buildup.

(3) Carious Lesions (3) Xerostomia/etiology: bacteria- poor oral hygiene, infrequent
dental visits/Risk for progression of bone
disease/edentulous/root caries

Planned Interventions

Clinical Education Oral Hygiene Instruction

Scaling – hard deposit 1. Plaque 1. Define plaque and use flipbook page to
removal  What is it (sticky white deposits of demonstrate and explain how plaque can cause
bacteria) problems within their oral cavity. Discuss plaque
Polishing – soft deposit  What it looks like (sticky, clear film, food scores and educate pt. on bass brushing method.
removal debri) Have pt. demonstrate what they’ve learned, that one
 How to remove it (brushing/flossing) should begin Flossing, brushing mechanically 2X a day
Fluoride application  What it causes (if left to harden it to remove plaque; Can lead to gingivitis and
becomes calculus. If not cleaned then periodontitis if not done so.
the gums will get irritated which leads to

2. Periodontitis 2. Explain to pt that periodontitis is the inflammation

 What is it--- irreversible/ clinical of gums, in combination with a clinical loss of
attachment loss attachment. The first stage of this is gingivitis, which
 How to manage and slow the is also called gum disease. Periodontitis is caused by
progression (brushing/flossing) plaque and calculus/tartar.
 How it can progress to a higher class of Periodontitis is NOT reversible. If not treated, it
periodontitis if no action is taken. progresses to a more severe form of Periodontitis.
Failure to slow the progression can cause an increase
in infection as well as loss of teeth and additional
bone. Use x-rays to show bone loss and use flip book
to show progression of disease. Teach patient how to
properly floss using the typodont as well as flipbook.
Have pt. demonstrate what they learned on their
own mouth. Make changes needed
3. Carious Lesion
-What it is (Cavity, hole in tooth) Start session by reviewing brushing and flossing
techniques learned from previous sessions. Ask Pt
-What it looks like how they are doing with new techniques. Watch
them demonstrate learned methods and revise if
-How it is caused (when pH of mouth is necessary. Explain to pt. that a cavity is a hole in the
between 4.4-5.5 over a long period of time) tooth caused by acid in the diet that is easily formed
if they do not stay diligent in these newly learned
-What it causes (demineralization of enamel, brushing/flossing techniques. Explain to the patient
can possibly remineralize) that they ultimately need to lower the pH in their diet
(reducing snacks and increase brushing/flossing)
advise pt. of the benefits of increasing fluoride as a
preventative measure and treating cavities before it
continues to progress.

Expected Outcomes

Goals Evaluation Method Time Frame

By 3rd
LTG 1: Reduce plaque score to 0.1 or less 1. Take a new plaque score @ each
STG: Define Plaque of treatment
STG: Discuss the importance of brushing 2X daily for 2 min
and flossing
STG: Correct patients brushing technique (teach bass 2. New bleeding score/physically look at the
method) gingiva (should see visible reduction in tissue By 3rd
LTG 2: Pt. will stop progression of periodontal disease by inflammation and color) @ each appointment appointment/end
reducing bleeding score from 9.5% to 7% also check pocket depths and bleeding scores of treatment
to compare prior results from previous
STG: Pt. will be able to define periodontitis as well as
understand the symptoms of the disease.
STG: Teach the importance of flossing and correct
STG: Pt. will learn about periodontitis on his own x-rays Restore cavity by
and learn the risk factors associated with periodontitis. next 6 months
3. X-rays, Annual oral exam, & dental charting
LTG 3: Get the cavity restored/filled (#31)
STG: Pt. will be able to Define Caries
STG: increase the patients knowledge on acid effects, diet
and ph levels.
STG: Increase the patients knowledge of fluoride

Prognosis Explain your prognosis

Fair Patient states that he will improve his brushing and flossing method to at least 2x daily; As well
Poor as getting his cavity filled as soon as possible to prevent further decay. Also patient shows
Questionable interest in limiting his consumption of fermentable carbohydrates as well as late night snacking
Hopeless in order to help prevent his mouth atmosphere from reaching that critical pH level.
Furthermore, patient shows motivation to improve overall oral health.
