What is dental charting for

What is Dental Charting for?

  • Dental Charting is a task that Dental Assistants will do for the dentist on a daily basis. You will need to become familiar with surfaces of a tooth, existing conditions, and restorations.


Terminology

Terminology

  • Maxillary – Upper Teeth

  • Mandibular – Lower Teeth

  • Anterior – Front Teeth

  • Posterior – Back Teeth

  • Midline – Imaginary line down the very center


Surfaces

Surfaces

  • Mesial – closest to Midline

  • Distal – farthest from Midline

  • Lingual – closest to Tongue

  • Facial – closest to Lips (Anterior)

  • Buccal – closest to Cheeks (Posterior)

  • Incisal – Biting Edge of Tooth (Anterior)

  • Occlusal – Chewing Surface (Posterior)


Charting

  • The adult mouth normally has 32 teeth.

    • Extraction of Wisdom Teeth is normal.


Charting

  • Teeth are numbered from 1 to 32.

  • On the upper arch, from left to right (dentist view) going from 1 to 16.

  • Then on lower arch, from right to left, going 17 to 32.


Charting

  • This is how a Dental Geometric Chart looks.


Charting

  • The “Midline” is an imaginary line that goes down the center, as illustrated by the turquoise line.

  • The “Lingual” would be the surface closest to the tongue, as illustrated by the green line.


Charting

Mesial

  • Surface Closest to the Midline

  • on All Teeth


Charting

Distal

  • Surface Farthest from the Midline

  • on All Teeth


Charting

Lingual

  • Surface Closest to the Tongue

  • on All Teeth


Charting

Facial

  • Surface Closest to Lips

  • on Anterior teeth

Charting

Let’s Review!


Charting

  • How many teeth in the normal adult mouth?

32


Charting

Where are the Midline and Lingual lines?

  • Midline

    • vertical line that goes down the center

      • between teeth #8 & #9

      • also between teeth #25 & #24

  • Lingual

    • horizontal line which represents the surface closest to the tongue

      • between Maxillary & Mandibular arches


Charting

What is the Mesial?

  • Surface Closest to the Midline

  • on All Teeth


Charting

What is the Distal?

  • Surface Farthest from the Midline

  • on All Teeth


Charting

What is the Lingual?

  • Surface Closest to the Tongue

  • on All Teeth


Charting

What is the Facial?

  • Surface Closest to Lips

  • on Anterior teeth


Charting

What is the Buccal?

  • Surface Closest to Cheeks

  • on Posterior teeth


Charting

What is the Incisal?

  • Biting Edge

  • of Anterior Teeth


Charting

What is the Occlusal?

  • Chewing Surface

  • of Posterior Teeth


Charting

Which color pencil would you use

to indicate work that needs to be done?

Red


Charting

What color pencil would you normally use

to record Existing Conditions?

Blue


Charting

any attention-worthy

issue must be in Red,

even Pre-Existing!

Red

But what if it’s a pre-existing issue that’s in particular need of

special attention… what color

pencil would you use then?


Charting

If a Tooth is Missing, how do you write it?

  • mark with a blue M


Charting

How do you mark a tooth that needs to be Extracted?

  • Mark with a red X


Charting

How do you mark down an Impacted tooth?

  • Circle around the outside in red

  • and write IMP

ATTENTION WORTHY! MARK IN RED!


Charting

How do you mark Amalgam filling?

  • Blue for existing

  • Red for to-be-done


Charting

How do you mark Composite filling?

  • Circle around indicated surface


Charting

How do you mark Gold Foil?

  • Outline surfaces

  • plus Diagonal lines on surfaces

  • write GF


Charting

How do you mark Gold Inlay?

  • Outline surfaces

  • plus Diagonal lines on surfaces


Charting

How do you mark a Full Gold Crown?

  • Diagonal lines on entire tooth

  • write FGC


Charting

How do you mark Porcelain Crown?

  • Circle Tooth on Inside

  • write PMC


Charting

  • red dot and S

  • DDS will indicate between which two teeth

ATTENTION WORTHY! MARK IN RED!


Charting

How do you mark

“Root Canal Treatment”?
