Summary

The goal of this research is to more effectively measure and care for gum tissue health, prior to, during, and following a scheduled surgery. Traditionally, periodontal surgical procedures are measured using an instrument called the periodontal probe, which is a small ruler used inside the mouth. This instrument measures the quality and positioning of the oral soft tissue. However, this research study will utilize an intraoral scanner to take pictures and create a 3D image of the teeth and gums before and after surgery. This research will try to test the accuracy of an intraoral scanner, commonly used in restorative dentistry, as a new protocol of an existing practice to capture and measure the oral soft tissue before and after periodontal surgeries.
