Periodontology Exam 1

Cementum is NOT necessary to the health of the periodontium because the underlying dentin will protect the root if the cementum is removed by toothbrush abrasion or from dental procedures. T/F

An example of risk factors you might investigate would beAny systemic diseases Presence of plaque at the gingival margin Presence of faulty margins on dental restorationsIntermittent disease progression refers toPeriods of disease activity and inactivityThe study of health and disease within a population isEpidemiologyAll of the following are radiolucent materials and structures, EXCEPT: A. Tooth pulp B. Enamel C. Periodontalligamentspace D. Marrow spaces in the boneEnamelThe normal level of the alveolar bone is approximately _____ apical to the cementoenamel junction.2mmWhen one of two adjacent teeth is tilted or erupted to a different height than its neighboring tooth, the crest of the interproximal bone will have a ____________ crest contour.AngularThe alveolar bone proper is the thin layer of dense bone that lines a normal tooth socket. On a radiograph, the alveolar bone proper is identified as the:Periodontal ligament spaceOn a radiograph, widening of the periodontal ligament space is an indication ofTooth mobilityOn a radiograph, when the crestal bone between two adjacent teeth has a pointed, triangular appearance, this is termedTriangulationRadiographs may useful in visualizing all of the following signs of periodontitis, EXCEPTPeriodontal pocketsThe best method for detection of subgingival calculus deposits isPeriodontal explorer
