The study involved 38 children at the age of 5 to 9 years with chronic periodontitis of deciduous teeth. Exctracted teeth on account of chronic periodontitis were evaluated according to the level of resorption using the developed classification of resorption of deciduous teeth roots.
According to the analysis of the research data chronic periodontitis of deciduous teeth led to faster resorption of their roots earlier by 2.5-4.5 years. Exctraction of deciduous tooth is advisable in determining of the “very early primary” and “very early progressive” pathological resorption. Considering the degree of pathological resorption may be an additional diagnostic criterion when choosing a method of treatment of deciduous tooth chronic periodontitis.
