Orthodontics and Periodontics: The Perfect Match

May 7, 2018 3:45pm ‐ May 7, 2018 4:30pm


Description

The aim of this presentation is to update the new strategies in adult orthodontic treatment with reduced periodontal attachment. 1250 patients (28-83 years old) were analyzed and pre-treatment, 4.8 and up 22 years post treatment results were evaluated. New protocols will be discussed while considering the individual treatment objectives. The results confirmed that a significant osseous repair was achieved in almost 90% of the patients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize and treat patients with reduced periodontal attachment.
  • Identify special considerations with patients that have been taking different medications that could have a significant effect on the bone turnover, specially in women during menopause.
  • Effectively deal with this difficult type of patient.
