Long-term Follow-up of Orthodontic Treatment of Patients With a Compromised Periodontium
This lecture will first establish a protocol for treating a patient with a history of periodontal disease, and will then evaluate if the orthodontic correction and periodontium can be maintained long-term. Finally, it will present an improved method of permanent retention for patients with advanced bone loss.
Formulate a protocol that the orthodontist and the peroodontist can use in treating a patient with a compromised periodontium
Design an orthodontic treatment plan that is realistic and achievable for the patient with a compromised periodontium
