About this Course

In patients with severe periodontitis (stage IV periodontitis), the combination of attachment loss and bone loss can lead to a series of events such as secondary occlusal trauma, pathological dental migration and severe malocclusions, that can compromise the patient's masticatory function and aesthetics. Therefore, these patients require, in addition to periodontal treatment, a multidisciplinary rehabilitation that includes orthodontic treatment aimed to solve the functional and aesthetic problems that are usually the main patient’s concern.

In this presentation, we will review some key aspects related to orthodontic tooth movement in patients with severe periodontal attachment loss. We will make special emphasis to the preservation of the mucogingival dimensions too, together with the use of plastic surgical techniques aimed to improve this dimension. We shall exemplify these indications with two cases where periodontal and orthodontic therapy have been carried out.

Benefits for learners:

· Latest evidence-based clinical case analysis

· Continued professional development and learning

· IOF Certificate of Completion

· Management of patients with orthodontic disorders


What will you learn?

- Why does pathologic tooth migration occur (PTM)?

- Can we move teeth in stage IV periodontitis patients?

- how should we plan and implement the orthodontic treatment in terms of biomechanics for IV periodontitis patients?

- How does periodontal regenerative procedures work with orthodontic movement?

- What is the timing to treat Altered passive eruption?

- What are indications of Gingivectomy and Crown lengthening?

Learning & Reflection

Learning and reflection is an essential activity for orthodontists and should be an integral part of all aspects of treatment delivery, as it aids the development of professionalism by facilitating lifelong learning and can reduce diagnostic errors. Reflective thinking can help to process emotions, improve mood, prevent burnout, and improve the patient’s care. The reflection is not developed spontaneously and therefore is an essential part of personal development. Let’s join the author together to practice your skills in diagnosis, management, and treatment.
