In brief: Perio, endo, prosth
Periodontitis is a disease which causes alveolar bone loss, locallized or generalized.
Malocclusion is also cause localized bone loss in the area of interference. Pulpal pathology (endodontal pathology) also causes bone loss as the drainage of the localized inflammation leads to vertical bone loss. Any prolonged, or chronic irritation or condition will lead to bone loss.
