I use periods whenever I can for 1 reason, for 2 sub-reasons of that reason:

  1. I type numbers like this on the numpad
    1. There are no parentheses (()) on the numpad.
    2. The distance to the dash (-) is greater and more taxing than the distance to the period (.), period.

    Firstly, allow me to admit: I do not know for sure. There are few rules as arbitrary and obsessively enforced as the rules of grammar, but in this case, I use my reasoning as an English speaker.

    A general rule is that hyphens link items and dashes separate items. Because of this, I lean to suggest use of the dash (-) in this instance, as the suffix referenced is going to be "linked" to different prefixes and other word anatomy.**

    The em dash (—) It indicates a break in thought and can be used within a sentence to insert a parenthetical phrase, whereas the en dash (–) is used between ranges of numbers or dates, or between adjectival phrases containing two-word concepts. Thus, I do not believe either would be used in this case.
