PI – Löe and Silness Plaque Index

Periapical and bitewing radiographs were taken in order to assess the presence of any pathologic bone loss.

Furthermore, a hormonal influence is strongly suggested on the gingival inflammatory process concomitant to pre-puberty and puberty Parfitt 17; Peretz, et al.

The patients had not taken antibiotics at least for the last three months before the kndex.

Retrospective analyses indicated the presence of distinct examiner styles which are based on the frequency that a given GI score 0, 1, 2, or 3 is measured by a clinician. GI 0 — Normal, healthy gingival with sharp, non-inflamed margins.

Mothers’ total gingival index was influenced by the fact of having a job.

The reported behavior and social status were also correlated to clinical indexes in children, and the results are shown in Table 5. Support Center Support Center.

The fidelity of initial acquisition of mutans streptococci by infants from their mothers.

Only 3 subjects in the mothers group presented distances values higher than 5mm. The composition of subgengival microflora in two groups of children with and without primary dentition alveolar bone loss.


Open in a separate window. Total gingival index was decreased with an increase in frequency of children’s tooth brushing and when their mothers declared they are used to flossing everyday. In addition, interexaminer calibration is a mechanism that can be utilized to minimize the impact of different examiner styles in clinical settings involving more than one examiner.

Therefore, it is more effective to change behavior through the route of behavior itself than through the route of knowledge.

PI 1 — Scattered plaque covering less than one-third of the buccal tooth surface. The procedures, possible discomforts or risks, as well as the benefits of this study were fully explained to the subjects involved, and their informed consent was obtained prior to the investigation.

Importantly, lloe implementation of arbitrary thresholds e.

Comparison of gingival index and sulcus bleeding index as indicators of periodontal status

The objective of this work was to develop an understanding of how clinicians experienced with GI differ with respect to how they apply GI and to assess the impact of different examination styles on statistical outcomes and magnitude silnesa treatment differences. The significant correlation for plaque index in molar region but not significant in the region of incisors may represent different abilities of plaque removal between mothers and children.


Reference entries gingival index in A Dictionary of Dentistry Length: In the children’s group, the eventual absence of proximal contact in the region of incisors may have also contributed to a lower plaque index. No bleeding on probing. Mothers who did not present first molars and incisors were excluded from the study group. However, very little gingval known about the correlation between the presence of periodontal disease in mothers and the establishment of gingival or periodontal disease in their children.

Children’s gingival indexes increased with age and decreased when they brushed their teeth more often, when their mothers had a si,ness and when their mothers declared they are used to flossing every day. Although the oldest children did not indes the highest values for plaque accumulation, they exhibited the highest total gingival index values, indicating an increase in gingival reaction to dental plaque accumulation with age, as described in the literature Bimstein and Matsson 5; Matsson 13gingiavl Matsson and Goldberg 15 Children’s Gingival Index was correlated to the variables mother’s frequency of flossing, mother with a job, children’s frequency of tooth brushing and children’s age.

The influence of some behavioral and social factors in plaque and gingival indexes of mothers and children was assessed by using the covariance analysis ginbival. J Clin Periodontol ; Initial acquisition of mutans streptococci by infants:
