Gingival Connective Tissue
1. Changes in the connective tissue of the gums are serious. The breakdown of collagen in the zone of inflammation, is almost completed.
2. There is widespread destruction of supragingival fiber bundles, reducing them to a fibre fragments. The destruction of the periodontal ligament and fiber bundles makes it easier for paroxizmalnaya form epithelium to move along the top surface of the root.
3. In transseptal fiber bundles, however, are constantly updated over the brow bone. The group intact transseptal fibers separates the site of inflammation of the rest of the alveolar bone, even in case of extensive bone loss (Fig. 3-8).
4. The epithelium grows at the root surface in areas where fiber bundles, were destroyed. Fiber loss attachment is permanent because the epithelium growing the root surface prevents reintegration periodontal ligament fibers in cement.
D. Alveolar bone: there are permanent destruction of alveolar bone that support the teeth. Tooth mobility may be present.
E. Periodontal ligament fibres: there are permanent destruction of some or all of the periodontal ligament and fiber bundles.
F. cement: cement in the periodontal pocket exposed plaque biofilm.
