B. Carious teeth
C. Root caries
D. Periodontal disease



The correct answer is A. Gingival diseases.

The first dental index, developed by Schour and Massler, was known as a Papilla, Marginal gingiva and Attached gingiva (PMA) Index. Each of those areas was examined and scored from 0 to 5, depending on the severity of inflammation. The PMA Index, largely of historic interest now, was primarily used in surveys of acute gingivitis. The status of a patient’s periodontal health or disease is commonly measured by an index in private practices.
