  1. white, creamy yellow, or gray, may be stained by tobacco, food or other pigments; slight deposits may be invisible until dried with compressed air
    supragingival calc
  2. light to dark brown, dark green, or black; stains derived from blood pigments from diseased pockets
    subgingival calc
  3. amorphous, bulky; gross deposits may form interproximal bridge between adjacent teeth or extend over the margin of the gingiva; shape of calc mass is determined by the anatomy of the teeth, contour of the gingival margin, and pressure of the tongue, lips, and cheeks
    supragingival calc
  4. flattened to conform with pressure from the pocket wall; combination of the following calc formations occur: crusty, spiny, or nodular; lege, or ring like; thin, smooth veneers; finger and fern like; individual calc islands
    subgingival calc
  5. moderately hard; newer deposits less dense and hard; porous surface covered with nonmineralized biofilm
    supragingival calc
  6. brittle, flintlike; harder and more dense; newest deposits near bottom of pocket are less dense and hard; surface covered with dental biofilm
    subgingival calc
  7. quantity has a direct relationship to: personal oral care procedures and biofilm control measures; physical character of diet; individual tendencies; function and use; increased amount in tobacco smokers
    supragingival calc
  8. related to pocket depth; increased amount with age because of accumulation; quantitiy is related to personal care, diet, and individual tendency as it is with the other; it is primarily related to the development and progression of periodontal disease
    subgingival calc
  9. coronal to margin of gingiva; may cover a large portion of the visible clinical crown, or may form fine thin line near gingival margin
    supragingival calc
  10. apical to margin of gingiva; extends to bottom of the pocdket and follows contour of soft tissue attachment; with gingival recession; this calc may become the other and become covered with typical other calc
    subgingival
  11. symmetrical arrangement on teeth, except when influenced by: malpositioned teeth, unilateral hypfunction, inconsistent personal care, abrasion from food; occurs with or without associated other composits; location related to openings of the salivary gland ducts; facial surface of maxillary molars; lingual surface of mandibular anterior teeth
    supragingival calc
  12. heaviest on proximal surfaces, lightest on facial surfaces, occurs without associated other deposits
    subgingival
