The relationship among pathologic breathing, facial skeletal hypoplasia, and alveolar bone deficiencies eventually lead to functional and esthetic dento-facial problems. Perio-Ortho solutions together may facilitate the process to create harmony in achieving function and esthetic long term by enhancing and facilitating tooth movement process. This concept can be used bi-directionally to increase periodontal health as well as orthodontic tooth movement.

Educational Objectives:
• Learn the concept of guided facial growth as the key to optimal airway and periodontal and occlusal health.
• Explain the skeletal growth and development as diagnostic and treatment planning tools in interdisciplinary care.
• Describe how alveolar bone decortications and periodontal regenerative procedures can allow for wider range of tooth movements, thereby preventing alveolar bone deficiencies.
