Combined Periodontal, Orthodontic and Restorative Treatment of Pathologic Migration of Anterior Teeth: A Case Report
Cirelli, Joni Augusto / Cirelli, Carolina Chan / Holzhausen, Marinella / Martins, Lidia Parsekian / Brandao, Celso Henrique
Pathologic tooth migration related to periodontal disease is a common chief complaint of periodontal patients. This paper describes the treatment of a case of severe periodontal disease and disfiguring pathologic migration of maxillary central incisors, which required a multidisciplinary approach. After conventional periodontal treatment was performed, the anterior diastema was closed using a combination of orthodontic therapy and restorative treatment. A 6-month follow-up examination of this case revealed resolution of the anterior pathologic migration, with gains in clinical attachment levels and a successful esthetic and functional final result.
