Delta Insurance, Radiographs and Early Periodontitis

0 Rating(s).


Posted on By Larry Burt In Periodontics

Hello,

This may not be the official place for this request, but I believe many of us can benefit from it. In short I am refuting the results of a Delta Insurance audit stating that "unless there is radiographic evidence of interproximal bone loss, then claims for scaling and root planing are disallowed" Through Google research and discussions with 2 periodontists, I have found scattered articles pointing out that initial bone loss cupped out is obscured by the buccal and lingual plates.

Here is my request of those more refined in the research field than myself. Will you please respond to this "case" simply with cites to the literature showing that early periodontitis can be obscured on radiographs. Of course I will appreciate it and hopefully others who are caught up in the insurance debacle will benefit also.

Thank you all in advance.
Larry Burt
