This study investigated the immediate effects, and the effects during 12 months, of a single episode of root debridement in 1248 sites in 9 periodontitis patients. Single recordings for probing depths and probing attachment levels were made at baseline, and at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. In addition, triplicate recordings of attachment levels were made for all sites by 3 independent examiners immediately prior to debridement, immediately post debridement, and at 3 and 12 months. It was found that a… CONTINUE READING
