“NO DESCRIPTION or mention of the condition to which attention is directed herein has been found in any of a considerable number of textbooks consulted, embracing dental pathology, dental histology, or periodontal disease.”
“Sometimes an individual wears back his gums and cuts a considerable groove in the tooth at and below the cementoenamel junction, with a stiff toothbrush and abrasive dentifrices.”
“What influence, if any, this condition may have upon any possible repair of periodontoclasia damage remains for future work to show.”
"A Clean Tooth Does Not Decay, nor does periodontoclasia occur about a clean tooth." C. C. Bass, M.D.
