The orthodontic treatment in adult periodontal patients: from biologyto clinical concepts

le 10/02/2022 • Prof. Dr. DANIELE CARDAROPOLI

15 :30 Welcoming
16 :00 to 19:00 : The orthodontic treatment in adult periodontal patients: from biology to clinical concepts
19:30 : Cocktail following the conference

Advanced periodontitis may be characterized by the formation of infrabony defects adjacent to pathologically migrated teeth. In such cases, the orthodontic-perio deontic interdisciplinary approach is an option. Literature supports tooth movement into infrabony defects aiming to defect closure, bone fill and possibly new attachment formation. Augmentation procedures also can be added. During the lecture, implications for orthodontic movement into infrabony defects will be addressed. The treatment of periodontal patients with tooth migration may require a combined periodontal and orthodontic therapy. The possibility of moving teeth into infrabony defects will be discussed, focusing on the rationale, timing and biological implications.
Management of soft tissues and the benefit added from the concomitant use of augmentation procedures will also be addressed. Educational objectives: Understand indications and the
proper treatment sequence in combined perio-ortho treatment, discuss the basic science and clinical evidence regarding intrusive tooth movement into infrabony defects, learn how to clinically manage periodontal tissues before, during and after orthodontic therapy.
