Abstract

This review focuses on the effect of acid demineralisation of the root surface as an adjunct to periodontal surgery in order to obtain new attachment. Several animal studies have shown that the treatment facilitates attachment of connective tissue to the root surface. Clinical studies, however, have failed to demonstrate the effectiveness of citric acid as an adjuvant to surgical debridement.
