C LINICAL F INDINGS E & I: The only possible pathological finding was a 1.5mmx1mm red lesion on the patient’s nose. Periodontal Exam: The patient has probing depths of generalized 2’s and 3’s with localized 1’s on the direct lingual surface of teeth #23-#26. MBI: 14%, BOP: 24%, and recession on many teeth in her mouth.
C LINICAL F INDINGS C ONTINUED Radiographic Exam: The patient has 12 crowns, 5 root canals, 3 composite restorations, and 2 amalgam restorations. She has 15 areas in her mouth with 1mm of bone loss and no areas of possible decay.
C LINICAL F INDINGS C ONTINUED Calculus Code: Medium ADA: Generalized II Localized III AAP: Generalized slight chronic perio. due to plaque and calculus and localized moderate perio. due to plaque and calculus
D ENTAL H EALTH E DUCATION The patient has been taking good care of her mouth since she had her crowns placed and she flosses daily. So I will just re- enforce good brushing technique with her and show her how to use her power toothbrushes (rota-dent and sonicare) to clean her teeth properly especially in the areas where she has crowns, because this is more than likely the reason for her higher than satisfactory BOP and MBI scores.
R ATIONAL FOR C ASE S ELECTION AND G OALS I decided to choose this patient because she has many crowns in her mouth and I think that she could benefit from good oral hygiene instructions on how to clean the areas in her mouth with restorations. The Goals for this patient include helping her to maintain good oral hygiene, learn more ways to care for he restorations, and complete a full mouth scale on her.
