Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Bleeding on Probing [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Percentage of Bleeding Scale: The bleeding sites are identified by either a 0 or 1. (0=no bleeding & 1= bleeding) The number of spots between teeth that bleed are divided by number of spots between teeth that are scored.

  • Mean Pocket Depth [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
    Measurement scale: 0 millimeter measurement= no pocket depth. 3, 4, 5, & 6 millimeter are indications of deeper Pocket depth.

  • Mean Percentage of Plaque Scores [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
    Mean Percentage (%) of dental plaque on all tooth surfaces, including implants and natural teeth. Plaque Scale is 0=no plaque and 1= dental plaque present. Percentage is derived from sum of all plaque scores divided by the number of tooth surfaces scored.
