From the Osteology Foundation:

For the current Oral Regeneration Topic “Interdisciplinary strategies in dentistry”, Jeniffer Perussolo spoke with Karin Jepsen, the first author of our key publication “The effect of timing of orthodontic therapy on the outcomes of regenerative periodontal surgery in patients with stage IV periodontitis”.  In this discussion, you’ll discover the benefits of combining orthodontic therapy with periodontal surgery.

According to Jepsen, when treating stage IV periodontitis, orthodontic therapy can be initiated as early as four weeks after regenerative surgery, with favourable outcomes and shorter overall treatment time. She outlines the prerequisites for this approach and discusses the future prospects for interdisciplinary treatment.
