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.

"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!

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:

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

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

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".
