A Multidisciplinary Approach for the Management of Pathologic Tooth Migration in a Patient with Moderately Advanced Periodontal Disease
Kim, Yong-Il / Kim, Myung-Jin / Choi, Jeom-Il / Park, Soo-Byung
The physiologic tooth position is determined by interactions between the periodontal tissue and occlusal, tongue, and lip forces. Bone destruction resulting from chronic periodontal disease disturbs the equilibrium of these interactive balances, leading to pathologic tooth migration, often requiring multidisciplinary treatment approaches. The present case demonstrates a systematic periodontalorthodontic- prosthetic treatment for achieving the optimal structural, functional, and esthetic outcomes.
