    A non‐invasive imaging and measurement using optical coherence tomography angiography for the assessment of gingiva: An in vivo study

    Gingiva is the soft tissue that surrounds and protects the teeth. Healthy gingiva provides an effective barrier to periodontal insults to deeper tissue, thus is an important indicator to a patient’s periodontal health. Current methods in assessing gingival tissue health, including visual observation and physical examination with probing on the gingiva, are qualitative and subjective. They may become cumbersome when more complex cases are involved, such as variations in gingival biotypes where feature and thickness of the gingiva are considered. A non‐invasive imaging technique providing depth‐resolved structural and vascular information is necessary for an improved assessment of ...
