Still in progress (Research halted by Covid19)
On 14 surfaces, there was no statistically significant difference between the DeVA-1 and the gold standard histologic examination of calculus!
However, statistically significant differences between DeVA-1 and tactile (p=.000) and tactile and histologic (p=.001).
Accuracy does not significantly decrease the deeper the pockets get as it does with tactile (statistically significant decrease- p=.018).
Pockets went from 5mm to 8mm.
