AIMS & OBJECTIVES: 

  • The evidence that gives insight into how periodontal soft tissues change as teeth are moved.
  • How tooth movement can be planned to achieve better gingival margin aesthetics.
  • How three-dimensional planning of tooth movement can reduce recession risk and in some cases reverse existing recession.
  • reverse existing recession.
  • Plan desirable changes in the gingival via orthodontic tooth movement. 
  • Minimise the risk of recession as orthodontic tooth movement proceeds.
