Introduction: Deep bite malocclusionis one of the most damaging malocclusion. A traumatic bite can aggravate and perpetuate periodontal disease in patients with poor oral hygiene.
Aim: To report three cases with different periodontal lesions in patients with deep bite.
Case Description: This paper illustrates three cases of Ackerlys class III traumatic bite patients presenting with range of periodontal lesions like localized gingival enlargement, localized periodontitis, tooth mobility and tooth exfoliation in maxillary and mandibular anterior region.
Conclusion: Excessive functional stress may accentuate inflammatory changes in the periodontium and thus enhance the destructive bacterial processes.
Clinical Significance: Traumatic deep overbite complicated with periodontal problems is a challenge for a clinical practitioner. A meticulous and comprehensive approach to periodontal and occlusal examination, etiological factors, diagnosis and treatment planning is essential for better treatment results.

Keywords: Malocclusion, Deep bite, Periodontal disease, Gum enlargement.
