Periodontics II

Test One

goal in root scaling is to produce a tooth that is biologically acceptable to connective tissue reattachment and a healthy periodontium we must A) assess the root surface B) know morphology of each tooth C) recognize "scaling endpoint" D) All of the above
The maxillary teeth that are trifurcated are the A) First premolars B) Second premolars C) canines D) None of the above D) None of the above
The roots of maxillary incisions tend to converge or taper toward the lingual surface, therefore access to the proximal surface is often better from the facial surface The statement is true but the conclusion is false
Instrumentation of the crown and root surfaces of the teeth to remove plaque and calculus Scaling
A procedure designed for the removal of cementum and dentin that is rough and/or permeated by calculus, or contaminated with toxins or microorganisms Root Planing
Sub and supragingival scaling combined with coronal polishing to remove plaque, calculus and stain Prophylaxis
An extension of periodontal therapy which involves continuing periodontal assessment and preventive treatment of periodontal structures to allow for early detection and treatment of new or recurring periodontal diseases Periodontal Maintenance
The main goal of mechanical nonsurgical therapy is to preserve the form and function of the dentition True
Initially an acute inflammatory reaction can be seen due to the trauma of mechanical therapy; subsides within 48-72 hours False(24-48 hours [Healing after NSPT, the healing periodontal tissues)
The stages of wound healing are inflammation, proliferation, maturation
Perio debridement does not cause and disruption of epithelial attachment to the tooth False (I don’t know this one for sure but it makes sense that it would disrupt it because in the notes it says that it results in a long junctional epithelium, so I think that means it gets disrupted)
Healing decreases with age due to increased food intake False
Antimicrobial rinses are an effective adjunct in treating periodontitis False (Works on gingivitis)
The ADA Seal of Acceptance indicates that the product has been evaluated and accepted based on the standards developed by the Council on Dental Therapeutics True
Hydrogen Peroxide is an antimicrobial agent that has been shown to slow the development of biofilm formation. The ADA's acceptance of its use has had a great influence on it's popularity The first statement is true but the second statement is false (Does not have ADA seal of acceptance)
hlorhexidine Gluconate does not have the ADA Seal of Acceptance because of it's staining properties False (Does have the ADA seal)
An objective of Phase 1 Therapy is to eliminate the microbial etiology for gingival and periodontal disease True
Phase 1 therapy will never be the only therapy required to treat the patients periodontal condition True
Periodontal Scaling has been demonstrated to reduce bleeding and probe depths by 80% and 2-3mm
no MGJ involvement; no loss of bone or soft tissue Class I
extends to or beyond MGJ; loss of bone or soft tissue Class III
extends to or beyond MGJ; no loss of bone or soft tissue Class II
extends to or beyond MGJ; severe bone and soft tissue loss Class IV
Type II Gingival Embrasuures have extensive recession or complete loss of interdental papilla False (slight to moderate
Furcation Classifications range from F1 through F4. A F3 furcation involves 1 or more furcations of a tooth with bone loss that does not extend beyond the dome of the root. It may or may not have radiographic changes. Both statements are false (0-4, F3: beyond dome of the root, radiolucency will be seen)
Flossing is a great way to remove plaque in a furcation False
