Abstract: The final part of this four part series will review the effects of orthodontic treatment with endodontically treated teeth. There are few published articles on the challenges faced when treatment planning cases with the integration of both endodontics and orthodontics. This article will aim to summarize the implications of endodontic treatment on orthodontic tooth movement using current evidence, followed by some case examples highlighting aspects of the orthodontic-endodontic interface.

Clinical relevance: With an increase in the number of patients undergoing orthodontic treatment, there is a greater need for clinicians to be aware of the orthodontic management of endodontically treated teeth and also managing endodontic complications during orthodontic treatment.
