The article outlines the clinical and histological response of the periodontium to excessive occlusal force. It also reviews the clinical studies that have examined the relationship between occlusion and periodontitis and reiterates a rational approach to managing occlusion within the context of periodontal therapy. It suggests that the initial treatment of the periodontitis lesion should focus on control of inflammation by means of patient oral hygiene and non-surgical therapy.

    Success of our clinical procedures is not a single-day entity, but instead survival on a long-term basis. The clinical longevity of our work is dependent on so many factors and when we have a closer look, all these ultimately depend on the occlusal stability. The word occlusion itself creates...

    Periodontal disease does not directly affect the occluding surfaces of teeth, consequently some may find a section on periodontics a surprising inclusion. Trauma from the occlusion, however, has been linked with periodontal disease for many years. Karolyi published his pioneering paper, in 1901...

    The article reports on a study to compare bite pressure (BP), bite force (BF) and the number of occlusal contact areas (OCAs) by applying a pressure measurement film. The test group was composed of 10 patients with periodontitis who required periodontal surgery. Results indicated that BP, BF and...
