Abstract


Introduction: Periodontal health plays a major role in deciding how long the tooth lasts. If inflammation and plaques exist, there can be damage to the periodontal support when orthodontic treatments are carried out. One of the results of orthodontic treatments is tooth inclination due to which fenestration and dehiscence are considered to be risk factors. Materials and Methods: Patients having received orthodontic treatment for the cases of class I and II both divisions were included in this study. Their files were observed and recorded for the purpose of information and data collection. A total of 14 patientsí files were accessed after an ethical approval acquired from the institutional review board of Riyadh Elm University. Results: Out of our sample of 382 teeth, 59 teeth showed no root resorption, 178 teeth were classified as class I, 105 teeth were classified as class II and 40 teeth were classified as class III. Conclusion: Bone loss and root resorption were observed in the majority of the patients. Very few cases of class III root resorption were identified.

Keywords: Bone loss, Orthodontic treatment, Root resorption.
