English term or phrase: Coronal flute
I found that flute is the elongated developmental depressions along the root branches of tooth root surfaces of certain teeth, but I don't know how to say it in Spanish, and I need to deliver this in a couple of hours.

Context:
"Coronal flute - Cortical bone is an exceptionally hard tissue. The coronal part of the NeO implant is straight with no active threads, only micro-threads which distribute the pressure on the surrounding bone."

Any help? Thanks!

estría coronal


Explanation:
Leyendo el material desde el cual viene tu texto, me parece entender lo siguiente:

1) está hablando del implante, no de la pieza dental
2) la parte apical del implante tiene forma cónica y perfil de rosca (resalto helicoidal, como los tornillos).
3) la parta coronal del implante tiene forma recta y no tiene rosca, pero sí unas hendiduras o muescas poco profundas. Creo que "coronal flute" se podría referir a estas muescas. Mira la definición 3 de flute en el Merriam Webster:

flute
3
: a rounded groove; specifically : one of the vertical parallel grooves on a classical architectural column


que coincide con la definición de "estría" del DRAE:

estría
1. f. Cada una de las rayas en hueco que suelen tener algunos cuerpos.


Si realmente se trata de esto (tú tendrás más contexto para entenderlo), puedes usar también "muesca" o "ranura".
