Évaluation clinique du détartrage supragingival assisté du révélateur de plaque F.L.A.G™ FOR B.LED

Abstract : Objectives: A new supragingival scaling technique associated with a fluorescent plaque disclosing agent was developed : the F.L.A.G FOR B.LED of ACTEON. The aim of this clinical study was to evaluate this device in terms of quality and care’s duration. Patients and Method: Thirty volunteers (29 ± 13 years) were treated by two operators in a study like Split mouth design. The buccal surfaces of anterior teeth were divided into two groups randomly: a control group treated with ultrasonic scaling and a test group treated with the F.L.A.G. We repeatedly measured plaque indexes with a probe or the disclosing solution, and duration of the care for every patient and every sector. Results: The plaque index of the side test was on average lower than the plaque index side reference of 0,22 (Löe et Silness scale; p<0,0001). The time of scaling test sector was on average lower of 9,7 seconds than the one of the control sector (p=0,0148). Discussion: The F.L.A.G FOR B.LED device brings a profit by eliminating more dental plaque and reducing the duration of treatment.
