Term Detail
MP term:abnormal periodontal ligament morphology
Synonym: abnormal periodontium
MP id: MP:0003668
Definition: any structural anomaly of the fibrous connective tissue that surrounds the root of a tooth, separating it from and attaching it to the alveolar bone; normally extends from the base of the gingival mucosa to the fundus of the bony socket, and its main function is to hold the tooth in its socket
