Plaque Index Procedure

Steps

  1. Dry teeth
  2. Apply disclosing solution with cotton tip applicator
  3. Rinse once
  4. Older plaque appears darker in color (blue)
  5. Examine each tooth surface and record plaque on surfaces along cervical 1/3 of tooth

Calculation

  1. Count number of surfaces with plaque
  2. Determine total number of surfaces available in mouth (#teeth*4)
  3. PI = (#surfaces with plaque) / (total # of available surfaces) * 100%
  4. PI of ≤10% is recommended to maintain health
