Efficiency of periodontal instrumentation has been assessed using indices like remaining calculus index, roughness and loss of tooth substance index which are very subjective. We hereby propose a more reproducible and objective technique for assessment of root surface components like calculus, tooth structure loss etc. Grid Counting Technique, is based on the point counting, which has been proven to be efficient in objectively grading area fractions in microscopic assessment of mitosis, immunohistochemistry as well as radiographic valuation. The implementation of the technique in relevant areas of periodontal research would enable a reliable comparison between multiple studies.
