Certain aspects of malocclusion, particularly deep overbite, can be related to periodontal pathology, especially in the presence of poor oral hygiene. The authors have noted an association between deep overbite and unusual periodontal lesions. These lesions often appear on radiographs as circumscribed radiolucencies, remote from the alveolar crest and sometimes close to the apex. Gingival surface injury and food impaction may be important aetiological factors. This is illustrated in this article by a number of case studies. © British Dental Journal 2006.
