Crossbite is one of the most common types of malocclusion. It is a potential cause of trauma from occlusion, and it can be a cofactor of periodontal diseases. However, research on the effects of crossbite on periodontium is still rare. This study aimed to analyze the relationship between crossbite and periodontal status. This cross-sectional study examined the dental records of 68 subjects with normal bite and 68 subjects with crossbite obtained from the Universitas Indonesia's dental teaching hospital from 2010-2015. Data was statistically analyzed using the Mann-Whitney U test. There were no statistically significant differences (p>0.05) in the mean values for gingival recession, loss of attachment, and gingival bleeding between the normal bite group and the crossbite group. A statistically significant difference (p<0.05) between the two groups was found for the mean values of pocket depth. There is no correlation between crossbite and gingival recession, loss of attachment, and gingival bleeding; but, there is a correlation between crossbite and pocket depth.
