Planned Interventions

Clinical Education Oral Hygiene Instruction

Plaque- is a soft white, sticky biofilm Brushing, good home care, and reduce plaque
substance on the teeth. Remove plaque by score.
Scaling hard deposit
brushing correctly. It causes gingivitis,
periodontitis, and caries.

Polishing soft deposit Brushing, flossing, good home care, and

gingivitis- is a reversible inflammation of
removal antiseptic mouth rinse
the gingiva that bleeds easily, it is halted by
flossing and brushing. It leads to
periodontitis and bone loss.
Fluoride application
Bruxism is from grinding and clenching. It
can lead to attrition, and dentin Use mouth guard at night
hypersensitivity. Using a mouth guard will
halt the progression from getting worse.
Expected Outcomes

Goals Evaluation Method Time Frame

LTG 1: Patient will understand what plaque is. Reduce 1.

plaque score 1.6 to .5 by final appointment.
Ask patient about plaque .5 by final
STG: Patient defines plaque appointment
Teach correct brushing technique and watch

todays appt
Record new plaque score each visit by recall
STG: Reduce plaque score by .4 each appt. & maintain visit 6
a score of .5 or lower by final/ recall appointment months.

LTG 2: Patient will understand what gingivitis is. Halt 2.

final/ recall visit
LTG 3: reduce attrition from bruxism
review patient the definition of plaque, and
STG: patient define bruxism gingivitis

STG: ask patient what bruxism can cause and how to define bruxism and what can it cause 6 months
prevent the cause
Ask patient what they could use to help with
STG: educate patient on wearing a night guard at bruxism from progressing more attrition,
night and headache problems
Prognosis Explain your prognosis

Good Patient has a decent home health care, but the patient needs to be shown better flossing
techniques shown by clinician in order to reverse gingivitis to keep it from progressing.
