Probing site configuration in patients with untreated periodontitis. A study of horizontal positional error.

Abstract

This study examined the morphology of 487 probing sites in patients with untreated periodontitis, using a constant force probe (0.25 N, 0.5 mm) and flexible stent with guide grooves, at 3 adjacent points per site, 6 sites per tooth. Sites were classified into 9 configuration types according to the relationship of the 3 adjacent points. Duplicate… (More)
