Lecture title: The Orthodontic-Periodontal Interface
Lecture abstract: In this present era, the importance of dental multidisciplinary treatment is crucial. The orthodontic–periodontics interdisciplinary approach is almost unavoidable due to several factors: 1- Orthodontic treatment sometimes results in undesirable periodontal changes; 2- Orthodontics has been used as an adjunct treatment to periodontics and vise-versa; 3- The increasing demand for adult orthodontics, where periodontal problems might contribute to the development of malocclusion.
