Advanced Periodontal Instrumentation ­ What They Didn't Teach You in Hygiene School

Copyright © 2008 Anna Matsuishi Pattison, R.D.H., M.S.

Trends in General Practice Increase in initial therapy by dental hygienists Increase in the utilization of dental hygienists to do local anesthesia Increase in the use of ultrasonics Increase in the use of antimicrobials Trends in Dental and Dental Hygiene Education No change or decrease in hours of periodontology taught More regional and state board exams allow ultrasonics for perio exam Increase in teaching of ultrasonics Less emphasis on hand instrumentation Increase in teaching use of antimicrobials Trends in Instrumentation Use of magnification/microscopes Use of endoscopy Use of calculus detection probes Use of lasers Miniaturization/thinning of manual and powered instruments Increase in use of ultrasonics Use of diamond coated instruments Use of adjunctive antimicrobials or local delivery antibiotics Problems Lack of early diagnosis Inability of dentists and hygienists to scale & root plane adequately Misuse of ultrasonics ("drive-by ultrasonic scaling") Misuse of antibiotics and antimicrobials Importance of Local Anesthesia for Dental Hygienists More states are allowing local anesthesia by dental hygienists Hygienists able to do more thorough periodontal scaling and root planing Changes treatment planning from rounds of gross scaling to more careful, definitive quadrant scaling Changes instrument selection and sequence


What's New? OraVerse ­ phentolamine mesylate - (Novalar Pharmaceuticals, Inc., San Diego) For reversal of local anesthesia Approved by FDA in May, 2008 OraqixTM local anesthetic gel (Dentsply) 2.5% lidocaine and 2.5% prilocaine

Ultrasonographic probing deviceUltrasound waves are directed subgingivally through water Probings print out digitally like other automated probing devices Research by US Navy and Old Dominion University Ultreo Ultrasound Toothbrush ­ first ultrasonic power brush ­ no longer available Oral B Triumph with Smart Guide ­ wireless remote feedback display Automated Probing Devices Florida Probe - automated constant force of pressure, software produces periodontal chart STM Probe - ProDentec automated probe Dentrix Voice - compliments Dentrix practice management software periodontal charting system. Hygienists can perform a comprehensive periodontal examination speaking into a conventional headset. PerioPal - voice driven periodontal program allows hygienist to verbally record periodontal measurements Dental R.A.T. ­ not a probing device ­ foot operated mouse enables hands free periodontal charting that works with current dental software. Digital Subtraction Radiography Diagnostic saliva tests PreViser Risk Assessment On line risk assessment tool - $7 per patient Calculates risk for periodontal disease, explains treatment options Oral cancer detection systems Vizilite Plus (Zila Corp.) VELscope System (LED Dental Inc.) Oral CDx ­ brush biopsy (OralCDx Laboratories, Inc.)

Ultra Waterpik® Dental Water Jet ­ newest model, quieter, large selection of tips - Danger of masking inflammation from residual burnished calculus with use of antimicrobials or antibiotics - Not enough head to head studies looking at PerioWave or Perio Protect Vs.

Lasers Dental/Surgical uses Used by dental hygienists only for soft tissue curettage NOT for calculus removal New "soft" lasers for calculus removal being developed Isolite Systems ­dryfield illuminator Provides retraction, aspiration, fiberoptic illumination. Isolite mouthpiece isolates maxillary and mandibular quadrants simultaneously, retracts and protects tongue and cheek, delivers bright, shadowless illumination, continuously aspirates and obturates the throat. Piezosurgery Systems New piezoelectric bone surgery technique that is less traumatic than traditional high speed burs for implantology, periodontal surgery, endodontic and orthodontic surgery. Provides micrometric cutting with maximum surgical precision and maximum safety for soft tissues. Mectron, Satelec and EMS are manufacturers of these systems. Subgingival Air Powder Prophylaxis Device Air-Flow®Handy Perio from EMS For removal of biofilm from subgingival root surfaces and implants Specially designed plastic subgingival tip Gentler than conventional supragingival air powder polishers Different powder ­ finer, less abrasive glycine crystal powder For periodontal maintenance Objectives of Root Debridement Calculus Removal Subgingival Plaque Removal Endotoxin Removal Cementum Removal?? Endotoxins Not bound to root surface Hughes & Smales 1986 Not bound or integral to calculus Hughes 1988, Chiew 1991 Does not penetrate cementum Nakib 1982 Root Surface Alterations Mineral changes Structural changes Retention of cytokines Embedded calculus


The Use of the Periodontal Endoscope DentalView DV2 dental endoscope - .99mm lens with fiberoptic light and 24-48X magnification Allows magnified, illuminated clear image of subgingival root surface, calculus, biofilm, etc. Vision allows precise and thorough instrumentation of deposits Extraction Studies Previous Periodontal Literature: In pockets deeper than 4 mm over 50% of the root may have residual calculus after traditional root planing Significant calculus also remains after surgical root planing New Endoscopy Studies: Only 1.2% of the endoscope aided root surfaces had residual calculus 98-99% complete calculus and biofilm removal with endoscopy because of accuracy of instrumentation and water irrigation Most of the Residual Calculus was found at the CEJ Where deposits are left: a) Deepest part of pocket b) Furcations ­ even in earliest stages c) Between non-overlapping strokes Endoscope has also shown us: d) e) f) g) CEJ Root concavities Line Angles ­ root prominences All Furcations

Retrospective Study of 626 Sites Deeper than 4 mm (Stambaugh) 1-2 mm. reduction of pocket depths after traditional scaling/root planning An additional average of 2.25 mm of pocket depth reduction with endoscopy Problem ­ Burnished Calculus 1.. Ultrasonics and hand instruments are equally effective. (World Workshop on Periodontics 2003-4) 2. Commonly quoted studies often have 30% bleeding sites 3. Ultrasonics and hand instruments are equally INeffective.


Influence of Perioscopy on Periodontal Instrumentation Perioscopy shows residual burnished calculus in depressions, furcations and at the CEJ Perioscopy shows residual inflammation on the soft tissue wall opposite the burnished calculus Low powered ultrasonic scaling and improper hand instrumentation results in burnishing rather than removal of calculus Subgingival plaque recolonizes rapidly especially on burnished calculus Complete removal of calculus results in pocket closure by long junctional epithelium

The DetecTar Probe (formerly by NEKS ­ now being developed by Dentsply) Subgingival calculus optical detection system Detects presence of subgingival dental calculus Unit beeps and flashes a small green light Works in the presence of contaminants (saliva, water, plaque or blood) Temporarily off the market ­ being redeveloped by Dentsply Professional
