Orthodontic treatment can greatly impact the periodontium, especially in dentitions with a thin periodontal phenotype. Tooth movement can result into the development and exacerbation of bony dehiscence or fenestration defects, which can manifest loss of periodontal support and gingival recession.
This presentation will discuss about the clinical benefits of periodontal phenotype enhancement for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment.
> Understand the factors affecting periodontal phenotype
> Learn the impact of orthodontic movement on the periodontium
> Understand the clinical benefits of periodontal phenotype enhancement for patients undergoing orthodontic treatments
> Differentiate the clinical benefits of soft and hard tissue grafting.
