The effectiveness of scaling and root planing with curets designed for deep pockets.

Abstract

This study evaluates the effectiveness of subgingival scaling and root planing with longer shank, thinner blade, rigid curets compared to the standard rigid Gracey curet. A total of 35 non-molar teeth from 7 patients provided 140 root surfaces for evaluation; 52 root surfaces were instrumented with the rigid longer shank curets; 52 with the standard rigid… (More)
