Kwok and Caton Classification (Periodontal Prognosis)

Favorable

The periodontal status of the tooth can be stabilized with comprehensive periodontal treatment and periodontal maintenance. Future loss of the periodontal supporting tissues is unlikely if these conditions are met.

Questionable

The periodontal status of the tooth is influenced by local and/or systemic factors that may or may not be able to be controlled. The periodontium can be stabilized with comprehensive periodontal treatment and periodontal maintenance if these factors are controlled; otherwise, future periodontal breakdown may occur.

Unfavorable

The periodontal status of the tooth is influenced by local and/or systemic factors that cannot be controlled. Periodontal breakdown is likely to occur even with comprehensive periodontal treatment and maintenance.

Hopeless

The tooth must be extracted.
