INTRODUCTION Though dental calculus is generally recognised as comprising mineralised bacteria, areas of non-mineralised bacteria may be present. AIM To investigate the ultrastructure of non-decalcified young and mature supragingival calculus and subgingival calculus, and the possible presence of internal viable bacteria. MATERIALS AND METHODS Supragingival calculus was harvested from five patients, 9-10 weeks after scaling and root debridement. Five samples of mature supragingival and… CONTINUE READING
