Do you have clients who have healthy 1-3mm interproximal periodontal probing depths, yet their buccal depths are 3mm and above ?  Enamel Projections may be the cause. These projections are a concern as they will contribute to furcation involvement which leads to the loss of supporting structures of involved teeth.
