Tooth anatomical factors that predispose to plaque associated with gum disease, or periodontitis
include tooth anatomical factors, such as cervical enamel forecasts and enamel, pearls, palatolingual grooves, or malocclusion (Fig. 17-11 and 17-12). Faulty dental restorations can cause plaque biofilm retention (Fig. 17-13 and 17-14) and can affect biological Width.
