AIMS This study investigated the loss of tooth substance (microg) by means of liquid scintillation in combination with profilometric and SEM analyses in order to evaluate the roughness and morphological changes of the root surface before and after instrumentation. METHOD 40 polished and irradiated bovine root surfaces were scaled in vitro while covered with 50 ml distilled water using a sonic prototype (Periosonic 1/2), a magnetostrictive ultrasonic (Cavitron with Slimline inserts) scaler and… CONTINUE READING
