Periodontal disease is a multifactorial disease with plaque microorganism as the initiating factor. Related risk factors must be identified to develop effective treatment plan and help make correct prognosis judgment and maintenance period management for patients receiving periodontal treatment. The introduction of mathematical model tools of risk assessment and prognosis judgment can help doctors to obtain objective judgment and analysis results. Various periodontal disease risk assessment and prognosis assessment tools and evaluation have been reported. Differences were found for periodontal disease risk assessment parameters in relevant tools and their scope of application, advantages, and disadvantages. This paper summarized the periodontal disease risk assessment and prognosis judgment tools. The findings help clinicians conduct objective and reasonable periodontal disease risk assessment and prognosis judgment and assist clinicians to develop personalized periodontal system diagnosis and treatment plan.

Key words: periodontal disease risk, risk factors, risk assessment, prognosis, prognostic factors, prognosis judgment
