Managing periodontitis stage IV patients with pathological tooth migration. Integration of periodontal and orthodontic therapies

This lecture will provide an overview on how to manage the severe periodontitis patient with tooth loss and drifting and flaring of the remaining dentition. In these patients, periodontal therapy aimed to arrest inflammation and reduce pocket depths is not enough to restore the patient’s function and aesthetic and the proper integration of orthodontic and implant restorative therapy is needed.

There is ample evidence that orthodontic tooth movements in teeth with a reduced periodontium do not cause further attachment loss and restore the proper occlusal force and space distribution to rehabilitate the lost dentition. However, the correct integration of periodontal, orthodontic, implant and restorative treatments is critical to achieve the desired outcomes, together with the correct patient compliance to allow these integrated therapies within a healthy periodontal environment. In this presentation I shall cover the stepwise approach to periodontal, orthodontic and implant restorative therapies, indicating the key treatment objectives and how to sequence this interdisciplinary approach

Aims, Objectives and Learning Outcomes:

Aims: To provide an overview of the treatment of the Periodontitis stage IV patient with pathological tooth migration.

Objectives: This lecture will provide an enhanced understanding of the integration of periodontal, implant and orthodontic treatment to restore the health, function, and aesthetics of Periodontitis stage IV patient with pathological tooth migration.

Learning outcomes: Following this presentation, delegates should have acquired knowledge regarding how to integrate the orthodontic treatment within the multidisciplinary therapy of the Periodontitis stage IV patient with pathological tooth migration.
