Abstract

One of the essential elements of periodontal therapy is long-term maintenance. Anatomic factors that favor localized plaque accumulation may contribute to the progression of disease. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the influence of root concavities on the severity of furcation involvement. Measurements were recorded clinically at the time of surgical treatment. Statistical analysis revealed no significant association between the degree of root concavity and the severity of furcation involvement.
