Management of periodontal disease can be challenging in patients with underlying malocclusion such as deep bite, extrusion, open contact areas and tipped teeth. Orthodontic treatment in such situation may contribute significantly to the overall rehabilitation, both functionally and aesthetically. These cases require close collaboration between the orthodontist and periodontist with a succinct understanding of the factors that influence periodontal tissue breakdown and appropriate biomechanics for tooth movement for long-term stability.
