A good clinical diagnosis is the need for the hour. Proper diagnosis is essential for better treatment planning of the disease. Traditional clinical measurements used for periodontal diagnosis are often of limited usefulness as they are indicators of previous periodontal disease rather than present disease activity. Hence, there is a need for developing novel diagnostic kits that can detect active disease, predict future disease emergency or progression and evaluate response to periodontal therapy, therapy facilitating management of periodontal patient. In this modern era there has been tremendous research in the field of diagnostic tools that can be used by periodontists in their daily practice. Different chair side diagnostic kits are discussed in this review which would be helpful for proper diagnosis, evaluating a disease prognosis and proper treatment planning.
