Influence of "time of day", pocket depth and scaling on gingival fluid flow.


Gingival fluid was sampled from the orifices of the gingival crevices in five male subjects with clinically healthy gingiva. The sampling was performed at 0915 h, 1215 h and 1515 h of the same day. Variation in "time of day" did not seem to influence the rate of gingival fluid flow. A total of 144 pockets (2-11 mm) in 19 patients were sampled for gingival… (More)
