Experimental: Scaling and root planing
Teeth that have been given a prognosis of hopeless and treatment planned for extraction will be scaled and root planed with various non-surgical instruments prior to extraction. The teeth will then be photographed and assessed for remaining hard accretion deposits to determine the effectiveness of the instruments.
Procedure: Scaling and root planing
Non-surgical instrumentation will be performed with specific instruments prior to treatment planned extraction by another provider.
- Modified, Area Specific hand scalers in 5mm or greater pockets [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]Amount of remaining deposits after instrumentation with the various curettes depending on which group the subject is randomized into on 5mm pockets or greater.
- Modified, Area Specific hand scalers in 5mm to 7mm pockets [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]Amount of remaining deposits after instrumentation with the various curettes depending on which group the subject is randomized into on 5mm to 7mm pockets.
