Primary occlusal trauma occurs when greater than normal occlusal
forces are placed on teeth, as in the case of parafunctional
habits, such as bruxism or various chewing or biting habits,
including but not limited to those involving fingernails and
pencils or pens.An example of secondary occlusal trauma. This X-ray
film displays two lone-standing mandibular teeth, #21 and #22, or
the lower left first premolar and canine. As the remnants of a once
full complement of 16 lower teeth, these two teeth have been alone
in opposing the forces associated with mastication for some time,
as can be evidenced by the widened pdl surrounding the premolar
Because this trauma is occurring on teeth that have 30-50% bone
loss, this would be classified as secondary oclcusal
trauma.Secondary occlusal trauma occurs when normal occlusal forces
are placed on teeth with compromised periodontal attachment.
