Abstract

This laboratory study investigated the efficiency and aggressiveness of metallic and carbonic inserts of a vertically oscillating ultrasonic device (Vector-system) at different power settings. The following parameters concerning periodontal treatment were assessed under standardized conditions: calculus and tooth substance removal, mean surface roughness and micro morphological appearance of the treated roots. Concerning the calculus removal potential, no significant differences were found between the types of insert used. The carbon fibre inserts, however, showed significantly more tooth substance loss than the metallic inserts. These findings were confirmed by micromorphological SEM analysis. In view of these results, the repeated use of these carbon fiber inserts during periodonatal sustaining therapy cannot be recommended.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
