Long-Term Prognosis of Severely Compromised Teeth Following Combined Periodontal and Orthodontic Treatment: A Retrospective Study
Aimetti, Mario / Garbo, Daniela / Ercoli, Elena / Grigorie, Maria Mihaela / Citterio, Filippo / Romano, Federica
This retrospective study evaluated the long-term response of periodontal tissues and survival rate of teeth with advanced attachment loss and pathologic migration in 21 periodontitis patients treated with combined periodontal and orthodontic treatment. All anterior migrated teeth were in function at the end of 10 to 15 years of maintenance. Residual probing depths and clinical attachment levels improved after treatment and remained stable through the follow-up. A total of 55 hopeless teeth were lost during active therapy, as well as 6 molars over the course of the supportive periodontal therapy (for nonperiodontal reasons). In highly compliant patients, all migrated teeth with initial unfavorable prognosis showed long-term clinical stability.
