Treatment of the advanced periodontal patient can be one of the most challenging case types. Bacterial and genetic testing have become part of initial diagnostics, followed by inflammatory control, and only then, regenerative periodontal therapies prior to occlusally-
“controlled” orthodontic treatment. Team-oriented treatment planning and sequencing of therapy will similarly be emphasized.
• Learn the importance of periodontal diagnosis in case planning.
• Understand the potential of “controlled” orthodontic treatment in advanced periodontal patients.
• Appreciate the importance of proper sequence of treatment on case success.
