EFFECT OF SMOKING CULTURE ON PERIODONTAL ATTACHMENT DAMAGE RADIOGRAPHICALLY EXAMINATION
The prevalence of alveolar crest bone damage in premolars until the
molar mandibular region using panoramic radiographs. Radiography
panoramic is a radiodiagnostic aid that is recommended as a method to
assess the shape of alveolar crest bone damage. The observational
descriptive research method is based on digital panoramic radiograph
examination of 30 samples with the range of age between 19 - 45 years
old as the secondary data from the Dentomaxillofacial Radiology
Department of Dental and Oral Hospital, Faculty of Dentistry, Prof. Dr.
Moestopo (Beragama) University that were assessed as purposive
sampling. The prevalence of alveolar crest bone damage in the
premolar-molar mandibular region using panoramic radiographs was
63.3%. The average range on male was 1.8571 from premolar, while
molar was 1.6667 with the horizontal shape of 43.3%. There was no
significant correlation between the age differences and the alveolar
crest bone damage with p value=0.346% (p>0.05).
