In comparing and evaluating the instruments that are used in root debridement, roughness constitutes a standard variable that is assessed. The purpose of this study was to describe the conditions and requirements for the three-dimensional roughness measurements of tooth roots using a laser profilometer. Impressions were made of 60 instrumented and 12… CONTINUE READING
