Ostéopénie et ostéoporose : conséquences parodontales

Abstract : Osteoporosis is a skeletal pathology characterized by a decrease in systemic bone density. It is the most common bone metabolic disorder and is a major public health problem. Its incidence is increasing throughout the world in parallel with the aging of the population. The dental organ is held in its alveolus thanks to the periodontal tissues. Gingivitis and periodontitis are two frequent pathologies of the periodontium. If no treatment is in place in the case of periodontitis, the tooth attachment system can be completely destroyed. Radio-morphometric indices from dental x-rays have been developed. They identify individuals with low bone density. In these individuals the periodontium shows signs of fragility. Osteoporosis and periodontitis are two pathologies that share common characteristics, by which they should influence one another.
