Abstract

This comprehensive review highlights a detailed overview related to devising a periodontal prognosis. A precise predictability of the results of a disease is profound and crucial for proper treatment planning. Since the understanding of periodontal disease has progressed to include the influence of risk factors assigning a prognosis has become more perplexing to the clinician. Various factors that influence the overall and individual tooth prognosis have been enumerated. The classification systems required to assign a prognosis has also been included. The potential adverse influences of both local and systemic factors have also been discussed. An experienced clinician should analyze all these factors, along with the patients attitude towards dental therapy, prior to arriving at a judgment for a single tooth or teeth. With newer trends in treatment modalities, patients can seek better options for treatment, thus improving the long term prognosis.
