  1. A 42-year old male patient presented himself for examination complaining of bleeding gums. While reviewing his medical history, he disclosed that he is a non-smoker but was recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. He claims his last HbA1c value was 6.2%. Upon clinical examination, he had numerous 4 mm pockets and one 5mm pocket on the mesial of #15. Evidence of slight radiographic horizontal bone loss was also noted in that area. All teeth were present and biofilm was moderate. Your initial classification of his case type is _______________.
  1. A 65-year old female patient presents for her 3-month maintenance appointment. She has been a heavy smoker for the past 40 years and is on 3 antihypertensive medications as well as Lipitor. She has lost 6 molars due to periodontal disease over the past 10 years which have been replaced with two partial dentures and has a subsequent ridge defect. She has numerous pockets that are between 5 and 7 mm with bleeding on probing and one 8 mm pocket. There is extensive radiographic bone loss around the remaining 2 molars that exceed 50% and vertical bone loss evident adjacent to a premolar. Furcation involvement on one molar is a Class III. Bleeding on probing is noted in some areas but is not as extensive as one would expect. Her plaque control is relatively good with only slight biofilm noted. You classify this case type as _______________.
  1. Which of the following statements is true?
