1 Dental Classifications Outline of Topics: Military Dental Classifications Case presentations & Discussion

2 Dental Classes Class 1 – – Patients not requiring dental treatment or re-evaluation for 12 months. Class 2 – – Patients who have oral conditions that, if not treated or followed up, have the potential but are not expected to result in dental emergencies within 12 months. Class 3 – – Patient has oral conditions that if not treated are expected to result in dental emergencies within 12 months. Patients should be placed in Class 3 when there are questions in determining classification between Class 2 and Class 3. Class 4 – – Patient has not had a dental exam in the last 13 months

3 Class 1 No active dental caries or defective restorations Arrested caries for which treatment is not indicated Healthy periodontium, no bleeding on probing; oral prophylaxis not indicated. Replacement of missing teeth not indicated. Unerupted, partially erupted, or malposed teeth that are without historical, clinical, or radiographic signs or symptoms of pathosis and are not recommended for prophylactic extractions.

4 Class 2 Treatment or follow up indicated for dental caries with minimal extension into dentin or minor defective restorations easily maintained by the patient where the condition does not cause definitive symptoms Interim restorations or prostheses that can be maintained by the patient for a 12-month period. This includes teeth that have been restored with permanent restorative material but for which protective coverage is indicated. Edentulous teeth requiring prosthesis but not on an immediate basis.

5 Class 2 Periodontal disease or periodontium exhibiting: – Requirement for oral prophylaxis. – Requirement for maintenance therapy; this includes stable or non- progressive mucogingival conditions requiring periodic evaluation. – Non-specific gingivitis. – Early or mild adult periodontitis. Unerupted, partially erupted, or malposed teeth that are without historical, clinical, or radiographic signs or symptoms of pathosis, but which are recommended for prophylactic removal. Active orthodontic treatment. Temporomandibular disorder patients in maintenance therapy.

6 Class 3 Dental caries, tooth fractures, or defective restorations where the condition extends beyond the dentinoenamel junction and causes definitive symptoms; dental caries with moderate or advanced extension into dentin; and defective restorations not maintained by the patient. Interim restorations or prostheses that cannot be maintained for a 12-month period. This includes teeth that have been restored with permanent restorative materials but for which protective coverage is indicated.

7 Class 3 Dental caries, tooth fractures, or defective restorations where the condition extends beyond the dentinoenamel junction and causes definitive symptoms; dental caries with moderate or advanced extension into dentin; and defective restorations not maintained by the patient. Interim restorations or prostheses that cannot be maintained for a 12-month period. This includes teeth that have been restored with permanent restorative materials but for which protective coverage is indicated.

8 Class 3 Chronic oral infections or other pathologic lesions including: Pulpal or periapical pathology requiring treatment. Lesions requiring biopsy or awaiting biopsy report. Emergency situations requiring therpy to relieve pain, treat trauma, treat acute oral infections, or provide timely follow- up care (e.g., drain or suture removal) until resolved. Temporomandibular disorders requiring active treatment.

9 ??Class 2 vs Class 3?? Both the Air Force and the Army agree that posterior teeth with root canal therapy require full cuspal coverage. However, the Army places the patient in class 2 after a permanent filling and the Air Force does not place the patient in class 2 until the tooth has full cuspal coverage. Why? A contradiction or area of interpretation in Policy for Standardization of Dental Classifications. 1- Air Force does not believe that as a rule a RCT tooth can last 12 months without cuspal coverage. 2- Army uses the have been restored with permanent restorative materials but for which protective coverage is indicated.

10 The Human Fighting System

11 Case #1 This 35-year-old male presents for a prophy. He frequently smokes but has no caries or defective restorations. What should his dental classification be after prophy?Class 1

12 Case #2 What is the correct dental classification? This 40-year-old has a history of periodontal disease but is now in a stable four-month maintenance phase. Class 2

13 Case #3 What should his dental classification be until she receives treatment? This 22-year-old female presents to sick call with a complaint of hot and cold sensitivity in her lower right molar. Class 3

14 Case #4 What should his dental classification be? This 30-year-old male complains of a loose upper molar. Tooth #3 has significant mobility with >6 mm probing depths and furcation involvement. Class 3

15 Case #5 What should her dental classification be? This 23-year-old female presents for routine exam. Teeth #13 & 14 have caries visible on the radiograph. Class 2

16 Case #6 What is the dental classification until the patient is treated? This 19-year-old female complains of cold sensitivity in the area of #19. The exam reveals distal caries consistent with the radiograph. Class 3

17 Case #7 What is the dental classification with normal perio probing? What is the dental classification with 7mm perio probing ? This 19-year-old female has impacted wisdom teeth. She has never had any pain, and they dont bother her. Class 1 Class 3

18 Case #8 What is the dental classification with normal probing until surgery? This same patient with asymptomatic third molars elects to have the teeth extracted using IV sedation. Class 1

19 Case #9 What is the dental classification until surgery? This 18-year-old male presents for chronic pain in the lower right wisdom tooth area. He is examined and scheduled for IV sedation and extraction of all wisdom teeth. Class 3

20 Case #10 What is the dental classification after the biopsy? This 31-year-old female presents for biopsy of this painless lesion. Class 3

21 Case #11 What is the dental classification? This 38-year-old male has heavy subgingival calculus on tooth #3 and adjacent teeth. Class 3

22 Case #12 What is her dental classification? This 20-year-old female presents for exam. She has distal caries on teeth #3 and #30. Class 2

36 Completing the DD Form 2813 Items 1-5 should be completed by military member Used to document exams by private and non-governmental contract dentists. The minimum clinical exam consists of the use of a mirror, probe & bitewing radiographs (Use ADA guideline for radiograph frequency).

37 Item 6 – Determine and mark appropriate dental Class (1, 2, or 3). Only if Class 3 mark a-f indicating treatment needs. If Class 3 must complete this section! If you will be treating this patient estimated time to get patient out of class 3 is useful.

38 Item 6 (4) - Dental radiographs should be consulted unless: patient is new to the practice and has a contraindication to new radiographs, and you are unable to obtain recent radiographs from previous dentist.

39 Item 7-11 fill in completely by office starff.
