High quality finishing for optimum function and esthetics is challenging to an Orthodontist while dealing with a periodontally compromised dentition. It is important to seek succinct understanding of the factors that influence the development and aggravation of periodontal disease superimposed on a malocclusion. Current research has highlighted the cellular and molecular mechanisms that play an important role in tissue destruction and regeneration techniques This coupled with modern diagnostic techniques such as CBCT creates tremendous opportunity for clinicians to engineer and enhance tissue reconstruction and in turn their quality of Orthodontic outcomes. The purpose of this lecture is to discuss trends in tissue rebuilding of teeth supporting tissues while dealing with malocclusions that are complicated by moderate to advanced periodontal destruction and its influence on decision making, treatment planning and treatment outcomes.
Identify periodontal procedures that can influence orthodontic treatment.
Identify orthodontic techniques for hard & soft tissue reconstruction and regeneration.
Implement strategies for Orthodontic/ Periodontic treatment planning with CBCT.
