Oclusal trauma as a predisponent risk factor for localized periodontal disease
Periodontal disease has a multifactorial etiology, in which bacterial biofilm, the main etiology, requires an association with predisposing risk factors for its onset. In this clinical case, the etiological factors involved in determining localized periodontal disease were analyzed, as well as the planning of the treatment protocol. The patient presented with a complaint of dentinal sensitivity in the dental element 35, which clinically showed the presence of a gingival recession with an insertion loss of 5 mm. The surgical therapy in this case was the modified subepithelial graft technique. It was concluded that the treatment of a periodontal disease aims to eliminate and / or control the etiological factors involved and that it is possible to treat the sequelae of the disease through regenerative procedures / biological restorations.
