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

- 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？

Professor of Orthodontics and Research Methodology,
the Universidad Complutense of Madrid (UCM)
Faculty of Odontology, Madrid, Spain
Dr. Martín holds the position of Clinical Teacher at the PostGraduate Program of Orthodontics at the university of UCM since 1996. She is a specialist in Orthodontics, having completed a 3-year postgraduate program at the University Complutense of Madrid and complementary postgraduate studies at UCLA. She received her Doctorate Degree in Odontology (Dr Odont) at the University of UCM. She is a specialist in Statistics and Experimental Design, having completed a Masters’ Degree at the University Autonoma in Barcelona. Now She is also on the editorial board of the European Journal of Orthodontics. She is currently the PI of the research group “Craniofacial Biology: Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics” (BIOCRAN) officially recognized and funded by the Spanish Government. Her past responsibilities in research involved the participation in two other research groups, one dealing with masticatory muscle physiology and neuromuscular activity in different malocclusions (mainly posterior cross-bites), and the ETEP research group: a multidisciplinary research group in aetiology and therapy of periodontal diseases, that covered topics such as biology of tooth movement, antimicrobial approaches in the treatment of gingivitis, periodontitis and peri-implant infections and bone and soft tissue biology.
Dr.Mariano Sanz obtained the Medical Degree at the University Complutense of Madrid (UCM) (1981) and later the Specialty of Stomatology (1983) and Doctorate in Medicine (PhD) at the same university (1985).
She is currently finishing her doctoral studies on Biology of Orthodontic Tooth movement guided by Dr. Conchita Martín in University Complutense of Madrid. She works as orthodontist in her private practice and she is Instructor in the Orthodontic Postgraduate Program of University Complutense of Madrid since 2016.
