Q4 : Is it possible to move teeth with periodontal disease?

It is 100% possible to move periodontally involved teeth once the disease is under control. It is also possible to restore the shape of the alveolar bone and gum destroyed by periodontal disease. Other dental procedures are often needed, calling for a comprehensive treatment plan. It is most important that the longevity of the teeth and their supporting tissues affected by periodontal disease is increased with orthodontic treatment.

Before treatment
Due to advancement of periodontal disease and instability in jaw position, spaces between front teeth are becoming more prominent.
After treatment
Periodontal disease was controlled while also stabilizing the jaw position and TMJ condition. Furthermore, teeth were aligned through an orthodontic treatment.
