Abstract

Partial recording of indices of periodontitis have long been used in clinical andepidemiological studies to predict full-mouth situation. The two most widely usedpartial recording indices for periodontal surveys are the community periodontal indexof treatment needs (CPITN) and the Ramfjord teeth.The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of Ramfjord teeth inpredicting the full-mouth periodontal status of an adult population in patient attendingthe collage of dentistry- Baghdad University.The study participants were 240 patients we divide them into three main groupsaccording to the age of the patients and each group were divided in to two sub groupsaccording to the sex of the patients. Pocket depth was measured in millimeters withperiodontal probeThe difference in the mean pocket depth measured from the full mouth(F) andRamfjord teeth(R) by using paired t - test was non significant in all the groups. Alsoin all groups the correlation coefficient as well as beta coefficient was highThe high agreement between Ramfjord teeth and full mouth periodontal pocketdepth confirm the epidemiological validity of Ramfjord teeth to represent the full mouth.

Abstract

Background: Since the periodontal disease Index of Ramfjord (Ramfjord index) can potentially shorten theexamination time by almost half, many studies evaluated Ramfjord teeth in predicting full-mouth periodontal statusof an adult population. The aim of this study was to evaluate the benefit of Ramfjord teeth in predicting the fullmouthclinical attachment level of an adult population in patients attending the college of dentistry- BaghdadUniversity.Materials and methods: The study participants were 100 patients with age range from 30-60 years old whichrepresent group zero. The patients were divided into three main groups according to the age of the patients. Group Iand group II each of them composed of 30 patients while group III composed of 40 patients. In the first time clinicalattachment level (CAL) was measured from the full mouth (FM) and then from the Ramfjord teeth (RT) (teethnumber: 16, 21, 24, 36, 41, 44) in all groups. Clinical attachment level (CAL) was measured in millimeters usingperiodontal probe.Results: The difference in the mean clinical attachment level measured from the full mouth (FM) and Ramfjord teeth(RT) by using paired t - test was non significant in all the groups. Also in all groups the correlation coefficient as well asbeta coefficient was high.Conclusion: The high agreement between Ramfjord teeth and full mouth CAL confirm the epidemiological validity ofRamfjord teeth to represent the full mouth

مؤشر رامفورد لامراضاللثة یمكن ان یقلل وقت الفحصالى النصف تقریبا، لذا الكثیر من الدراسات قیمت اسنان رامفورد في توقع الحالة الصحیة للثة لكامل الفم في السكان البالغین.ھدف ھذه الدراسة كان لتقییم اسنان رامفورد في توقع مستوى الانسجة الرابطة لكامل الفم لدى السكان البالغیین من المرضى الذین یراجعون كلیة طب الاسنان- جامعة بغداد.60 سنة ویمثلون مجموعة الصفر. تم تقسیم المشاركین في ھذه الدراسة الى ثلاث مجموعات رئیسیة وفقا للعمر. - المشاركین في ھذه الدراسة كانوا مائة مریض، تتراوح اعمارھم من 30المجموعة الاولى والثانیة تتكون كل منھما من 30 مشارك بینما المجموعة الرابعة تتكون من 40 مشارك.اسنان رامفورد: 16،21،24،36،41،44 ) في كل ) (RF) ومن ثم قیاس مستوى الانسجة الرابطة لاسنان رامفورد (FM) تم اولا قیاس مستوى الانسجة الرابطة لجمیع الاسنان في الفمالمجموعات. تم قیاس مستوى الانسجة الرابطة باستخدام مسبار اللثة.كان غیر مھم في كل المجموعات، قیاسات معامل t باختبار (RF) ومستوى الانسجة الرابطة لاسنان رامفورد (FM) الفرق بین معدل مستوى الانسجة الرابطة المقاس لكامل الفمالارتباط ومعامل بیتا في كل المجموعات كانت عالیة.الموافقة العالیة بین مستوى الانسجة الرابطة لاسنان رامفورد ولكامل الفم یؤكد صحة استخدام اسنان رامفورد لتمثیل كامل الفم في الدراسات الوبائیة
