There is a paucity of information on the concise relationship between endodontics and orthodontics during treatment planning decisions. This relationship ranges from effects on the pulp from orthodontic treatment and the potential for resorption during tooth movement, to the clinical management of teeth requiring integrated endodontic and orthodontic treatment. This paper reviews the literature based on the definition of endodontics and the scope of endodontic practice as they relate to common orthodontic endodontic treatment planning challenges.
The paper below published in the International Endodontic Journal, provides a comprehensive appraisal of the factors to consider when managing cases that present with the need for orthodontics and endodontics.
