Medical Definition of Periodontal attachment loss

1. Loss or destruction of periodontal tissue caused by periodontitis or other destructive periodontal diseases or by injury during instrumentation. Attachment refers to the periodontal ligament which attaches to the alveolar bone. It has been hypothesised that treatment of the underlying periodontal disease and the seeding of periodontal ligament cells enable the creating of new attachment. (12 Dec 1998)
