A new computerised method for evaluating risk profiles of periodontal patients
Rotundo, Roberto / Prato, Giovan Paolo Pini
As the first step in the treatment approach to the individual patient, practitioners should collect all the anamnestic and clinical data in order to make a correct diagnosis, establish a prognosis and create an appropriate treatment plan. This entire process should be based on evidence-based criteria. The aim of this paper is to propose a new computerised method of recording and assessing clinical data that can facilitate the prognostic evaluation and increase the degree of patient compliance.
