Risk Factors In Orthodontry: Periodontal Complications


Continuing our discussion of the possible risks and complications during orthodontic treatment, it has become necessary for us to mention the possible side effects that wearing orthodontic braces can have on your periodontal tissue. So far we have talked of the complications these devices may cause to teeth and to tooth surfaces, but orthodontic devices may also very rarely damage or inflame the gums as well. This happens more often with patients who have lurking or hidden periodontal diseases, as even a slight inflammation can cause changes in the periodontal tissue that can complicate treatment.
