Abstract

Teeth and periodontium are designed in such a manner that mutually they significantly contribute to their own health and support. They are complimentary to each other. Proper form and alignment of teeth protect periodontium. During mastication, the contours of teeth as a unit protect the periodontium. A breach in the continuity of contacts of teeth gives rise to diseases of periodontium resulting in loss of teeth.
