Table 6 Miniature schnauzer periodontal disease scoring system (adapted from Wiggs & Lobprise,[26])

From: A longitudinal assessment of periodontal disease in 52 miniature schnauzers

Score Gingivitis Periodontal probing depth (mm) Gingival recession (mm) Furcation exposure
Health (G0) No gingivitis, pink (or pigmented) healthy gingiva, no inflammation and no bleeding on probing <1 0 0
G1 Very mild gingivitis (red, swollen but no bleeding on probing) ≥1 0 0
G2 Mild gingivitis (red, swollen and delayed bleeding on probing) ≥1 0 0
G3 Moderate gingivitis (red, swollen and immediate bleeding on probing) ≥1 0 0
G4 Severe gingivitis (ulceration, spontaneous haemorrhage, profuse bleeding on probing) ≥1 0 0
PD1 G1-G4: gingivitis must be present (i.e. active periodontitis) >2 (>3 on canine teeth) >0 Grade 1; feel an indentation between the roots and the probe may advance 1 mm.
PD2 G1-G4: gingivitis must be present (i.e. active periodontitis) >4 (>6 on canine teeth) >2 (>3 on canine teeth) Grade 2; obvious indentation between the roots and probe advances 50%.
