Limitations of this study included the number of patient participants with readily detectable calculus deposits, potential rater recall of the calculus deposits on the patient participants' teeth, and rater fatigue which may have affected tactile sensitivity. Future studies should investigate calculus evaluation utilizing other UI designs, measure the efficacy of UI calculus detection with varying amounts of calculus, and determine whether clinical experience, (dental hygiene students versus experienced clinicans), affects calculus detection using UIs.
