Abstract

To analyze the relationship between deep bite and periodontal status. A cross-sectional study of 52 normal bite subjects and 52 deep bite subjects using patients' dental records from Teaching hospital Faculty of Dentistry Universitas Indonesia. Statistical analysis was conducted with the Mann-Whitney U test. There were statistically significant differences (p > 0.05) in the mean values of pocket depth, gingival recession, loss of attachment, and gingival bleeding between normal bite and deep bite groups. There were associations between deep bite and the increase in pocket depth, gingival recession, loss of attachment, and gingival bleeding. Whilst in deep bite patients, the maxillary palatogingival and the mandibular lingual gingival tissues showed the highest levels of damage.
