MAXILLOFACIAL ABNORMALITIES AND SURGICAL STABILITY AFTER CHANGING THE ANGLE OF THE PROXIMAL SEGMENT IN PATIENTS WITH FACIAL ASYMMETRY AND PERIODONTAL PROBLEMS
This study investigated jaw and facial abnormalities and surgical stability after changing the angle of the proximal segment in patients with facial asymmetry and periodontal problems. Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria in dental plaque. Plaque is a sticky substance that forms on your teeth after brushing and eating. This disease is closely related to oral hygiene. This disease does not involve the teeth, but penetrates the tissues supporting the teeth. When dental plaques are not removed from the teeth, they attack the supporting tissues of the teeth. It is meant by the supporting tissues of the teeth, gums, bone tissue and supporting fibers in which the teeth are placed. This disease starts from the gum and if it is not treated, it also includes the bone tissue. Infection and inflammation first develop in the gums and involve the surrounding bones. Periodontal disease is initially known as gingivitis, which causes gum swelling and sometimes bleeding in the initial stage. In some cases, the roots of the teeth may be visible. The severity of the disease can also cause tooth loss, which is a sign of severe periodontitis. The progress of periodontal disease in a person depends on the severity of attack or resistance to plaque attack and the efficiency of immune and inflammatory responses of the host body. Current research shows that host responses are influenced by specific environmental and genetic factors that can determine the general susceptibility of the host or the local susceptibility of a tooth within the mouth to the disease. Unfortunately, the severity of the disease is higher in people who have diseases such as diabetes, HIV, and Down syndrome, due to their weak immune system. Smoking and diabetes are among the factors of periodontal disease.
