This last study in the series was
done partly to determine if plaque control was important.
The results which follow generally support the previous two similar studies.
These studies are important because they document that patients generally do not have superior results of treatment following surgical intervention even though there was no infection control employed during treatment. After extensive clinical experience and more supportive research, we know that nonsurgical treatment of gum disease with the addition of infection control results in significant improvement in treatment results compared to current standards. 15,18,28-33
