Index

A book containing references, alphabetically arranged, to the contents of a series or collection of documents or volumes; or a section (normally at the end) of a single volume or set of volumes containing such references to its contents.

Statistical indexes are also used to track or measure changes in the economy (for example, the Consumer Price Index) and movement in stock markets (for example, Standard & Poor's Index). Such indexes are usually keyed to a base year, month, or other period of comparison.

In mortgage financing, the term is used to determine adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) interest rates after the discount period ends. Common indexes for ARMs are one-year Treasury Securities and the national average cost of funds to savings and loan associations.

After the different periodontal treatments, clinical index values such as plaque and gingival index values of the different study groups were also found to be statistically different (p<0.
Mean and standard deviation, as well as median and interquartile range (Q1-Q3), were calculated for continuous variables, such as gingival index and percentage of bleeding sites.
The primary purpose of this study was to find the effect of messaging instruction on plaque index (PI), bleeding index (BI) and Modified gingival index (MGI) score in a group of orthodontic patients and compare these scores with controls.
The Gingival Index score: a zero to 3 rating, with zero being normal gums, and 3 indicating severe inflammation with swelling, ulceration, and a tendency to spontaneous bleeding.

In our study, mean gingival index for the chronic periodontitis group was higher compared to the control group, which was statistically highly significant (p<0.
Periodontal parameters, plaque index, gingival index, gingival recession, and depth and bleeding on probing were measured on six sites per tooth.
Table 2 evidences that control patients had better periodontal clinical parameters than patients with moderate and advanced periodontitis, given that significant differences were found in average pocket depth, clinical insertion level, bleeding on probing, and in gingival index.
Pre-operative (baseline) and post-operative (24 weeks) clinical recordings like plaque Index (PI), gingival index (GI) recession depth (RD), probing depth (PD), Percentage of recession coverage (RC) and clinical attachment level (CAL) were assessed in both groups.
Previous reports have been showed that salivary ADH, AST and ALT activities correlated with PD and gingival index, and also decreased after oral hygiene instructions, scaling and root surface debridement and administration of antibiotics [13,14], it has been reported as community periodontal index of treatment needs code 4 than in those coded lower, which is detected by the evaluated diagnostic system [15] previously it has been reported that LDH activities in patients decreased at 2 to 3 months after scaling, corresponding to levels similar to those in subjects with healthy periodontism [15].
