Lauren Mai STEAM Project: Resorption in the Jaw Bone and the Affect it has on Teeth

Alveolar Bone resorption seen in the jaw can be caused by periodontitis. When left untreated, the rate of resorption can continue to increase and eventually cause tooth attachment loss and tooth loss. Once tooth loss occurs, even more, bone resorption can occur in the jaw. The illustration of the project depicts how when osteoclasts and osteoblasts work outside of equilibrium, significant bone resorption can occur in the jaw, and tooth loss can occur.

My hope is that from my project my peers will understand the importance of oral hygiene; brushing twice a day with proper technique and flossing at least once a day can help prevent Periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is caused by a build-up of plaque that contains bacterium which creates inflammatory cells that disrupt the remodeling process. This is discussed in more detail in my essay.
