Previous studies of gingival blood flow have used techniques that were discrete, invasive, or only applicable to animals. The present study assessed this parameter in 10 healthy humans using a noninvasive laser Doppler flowmeter (LDF), Blood flow rate was determined in the interdental papillae. Free and attached gingival, and alveolar mucosa, Measurements were made continoulsy at four sites per patient and discontinoulsy at 21 sites per arch representing the four locations. The effects of heat… CONTINUE READING
