PMID:  3279178     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Twelve patients, aged 35 to 60, having adult periodontitis were treated with scaling and root planning performed with ultrasonic and hand scalers. Biopsies were taken, gingival crevicular fluid and clinical parameters were analyzed at different times, and the healing process was monitored. Findings showed a clear correlation between the amount of crevicular fluid and the histological inflammatory pattern, whereas no relationship between crevicular fluid and gingival pocket depth was apparent. In this study, no differences were found in the histological features of the repair process triggered by either type of scaler.
