Local Factors That Cause Direct Damage
In the fourth section discusses a number of local factors that can cause direct damage to tissues. These factors can also change the course of periodontitis
in some areas. Some local factors that could directly damage the tissues of parodentium include food, stiffness, habits of the patient and the restoration or faulty devices.
1. Direct damage from the food situation.
A. Definition. Food impaction refers to shove food (such as pieces of hard meat) between the teeth while chewing, catching food in the interdental areas.
B) impact of the food situation.
