انحسار اللثة وتراجعها عن مكانها الطبيعي لأسباب مختلفة من بينها الالتهاب.

Example sentence(s):
  • كما يمكن أن تصاب اللثة بالتراجع والانحسار فيتطاول السن وينكشف الجذر . ويصبح حساسا وغير تجميلي ، وقد يصاب بالنخر العنقي ، ومن كل هذه العلامات يبرز دور الكشف المبكر وبالتالي أهمية الزيارة الدورية الباكرة للطبيب -  
  • وبهذه الآلية يستمر تراجع اللثة وامتصاص العظم وانكشاف الأسنان مما يؤدي إلى تقلقلها وانخلاعها، ثم فقدانها، مع إنها قد تكون خالية من أي نخر أو تسوس.. -
