The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of reducing the time of application of conditioning agents in root surface decontamination in vitro and in vivo. For the in vitro study, 35 teeth extracted for periodontal reasons will be separated into two fragments, accoding to tooth long axis, resulting in 70 fragments which will be divided into 7 groups according to treatment: Group 1A- scaling and root planning (SRP) + phosphoric acid (PA) for 180 seconds; Group 1B- SRP + PA for 90 seconds; Group 2A - SRP + EDTA for 180 seconds; Group 2B - SRP + EDTA for 90 seconds; Grupo 3A - SRP + citric acid plus tetracycline (CA+T) for 180 seconds; Grupo 3B - RAR + [AC+T] for 90 seconds; Control - SRP. Fragments will be investigated by scanning electron microscopy to determine the degree of root surface decontamination according to surface roughness index (SRI), residual calculus index (RCI), loss of dental substance index (LDSI), presence of tissue remnants index (PTRI), and removal of smear layer index (RSLI). The results obtained will be statistically analyzed by Kruskal-Wallis. For the in vivo study, the effects of root conditioning with CA+T for 180 seconds (G180), 90 seconds (G90) or no application (G0) on root coverage by subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) will be investigated in 60 patients, both genders, aged 30-60 years, presenting Miller class I or II recessions. Patients will be randomly assigned for one of the study groups (n=20). Patients will be asked about hipersensitivity before surgery and 7, 14, and 30 days after surgery according to a visual scale of painful symptoms. Patients will be periodontally examined by a single and previously calibrated examiner, unaware of the treatment performed, according to probing depth (PD), clinical attachment level (CAL), marginal tissue recession (R), bleeding on probing (BOP), width of keratinized gingiva (KGW), and plaque index (PlI) at baseline and 30, 90, 180 and 360 days after surgery. Intra-group statistical analysis will be performed by unpaired t test for each period of evaluation. Inter-group analysis will be performed by analysis of variance for repeated measures. (AU)
