VISTA - 4 years follow up
Recently published study is showing that 2/3 of adult periodontal patients are interested in ortho therapy. Well, majority of my patients refuses orthodontic alignment, like this presented patient.
There were already few discussions on this forum about occlusion as a co-factor for recession development.
2017 World Workshop concluded: “There does not appear to be any scientific evidence to prove that excessive occlusal forces cause abfraction or gingival recession”.
What does the group say: do you refuse to do surgical treatment if no occlusal adjustment is done? Is there any evidence that night guard helps to maintain the result?
