Abstract: Patients who are at risk of, or have a history of, periodontal disease requesting orthodontic treatment require careful multidisciplinary management in order to achieve optimal orthodontic and periodontal outcomes. An understanding of the periodontal tissues and the disease processes that can affect the periodontium is required by the orthodontist to ensure that patients are managed appropriately.

Clinical relevance: This paper discusses the multidisciplinary management of periodontal patients who require orthodontic treatment and methods for ensuring optimal outcomes.
