Effect of various root surface treatments on the attachment and growth of human gingival fibroblasts: histologic and scanning electron microscopic evaluation.

Abstract

Human teeth extracted because of advanced periodontal disease were obtained. The portions of the roots which had been exposed in periodontal pockets were either untreated or were treated with root planing or citric acid, or root planing followed by citric acid. Human gingival fibroblasts were then added to the roots so treated and were allowed to incubate… (More)
