Abstract : Sixteen teeth were root planed and allowed to remain in situ until new calculus deposits formed. The teeth were extracted and examined histologically to determine the mechanism by which calculus attaches to root surfaces. The major modes of attachment of calculus to root planed surfaces were by way of a cuticle-like structure and by way of direct attachment of microorganisms. Contributing modes of attachment included a mechanical locking of the calculus mass into splits along the dentinal tubules and into root planing irregularities. (Author)
