Un correcto diagnóstico periodontal es necesario para la realización de una terapia periodontal exitosa en nuestro paciente. Entendiendo que la enfermedad periodontal es un proceso infeccioso-inflamatorio, diferentes variables se deben analizar clínicamente para determinar el diagnóstico. El diagnóstico entonces es un análisis concienzudo de la expresión clínica de la enfermedad, desde gingivitis hasta periodontitis. Este artículo analiza los determinantes más importantes del diagnóstico periodontal utilizados en la práctica clínica diaria.

Palabras clave:
Profundidad al sondaje
nivel de inserción clínica
pérdida ósea
sangrado al sondaje
periodontitis crónica
periodontitis agresiva

The correct diagnosis of periodontal disease is a pre-requisite for an appropriate periodontal treatment. Periodontal disease is an infectious-inflammatory process that affects different clinical variables that must be analyzed before reaching the diagnosis. The diagnosis should be a carefully performed analysis of the clinical expression of the disease, from gingivitis to periodontitis. This article reviews the most important determinants of periodontal diagnosis.

Key words:
Probing depth
clinical attachment level
bone loss
bleeding on probing
chronic periodontitis
aggressive periodontitis
