Abstract

OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to evaluate the reproducibility of periodontal clinical parameters measurements taken by two operators with different level of experience in subjects with periodontitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Measures about periodontal clinical parameters (PD, REC, CAL, furcation involvement and tooth mobility) were taken by two examiners on the same quadrant of the same subjects. RESULTS Twenty-Two patients were evaluated in the study. The Cohen's Kappa showed a fair agreement (0.376) in the identification of one site with probing depth equal or higher than 4 mm, and a moderate agreement in the identification of one tooth with at least one site with probing depth equal or higher than 4 mm. CONCLUSIONS Considering the results of the present investigation, a moderate concordance in identifying sites with clinical attachment loss could be found between the two examiners.
