Alveolar bone level measurements obtained by transgingival probing were compared with alveolar bone levels measured during surgery at 178 sites in 9 patients. Probing depth measurements using constant loads of 30 g and 60 g were also compared with bone levels measured at surgery at the above sites. The effects of inflammation, location of the site on the tooth surface and tooth type were also investigated. Transgingival probing was unaffected by these factors and proved to be an accurate method… CONTINUE READING
