This investigation was designed to determine the reproducibility of probing pocket depths in maxillary facial and mandibular facial and lingual grade II and III molar furcation sites. 80 untreated molar teeth with 102 furcation invasions due to periodontitis were probed with a pressure-sensitive periodontal probe by 3 examiners. 8 sites per furcation were(More)
