Dental malposition caused by periodontal disease are often observed in this type of patients. Also, these patients often are undergoing orthodontic treatment in order to restore the esthetics and functions of the dental and periodontal apparatus.

This review analyses several studies concerning this important topic and highlights the parameters that influence the outcome of orthodontic treatment.
