Abstract

The health of the surrounding hard and soft tissues is important for the optimal functioning of the natural dentition. The dentist plays a positive role in maintaining the health of the diseased oral tissues if a careful and meticulous diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment procedures are carried out. On the other hand, the dentist may be incriminated in perpetuating damage to the tissues as a result of injudicious / careless dental therapy. This article is a review on the implications of common dental procedures for the periodontium.
