A multidisciplinary approach is much important to treat and avert the vast majority of the dental issues in a patient. It might be identified with various branches of dentistry. Among them orthodontics and periodontics are interrelated in various ways. The fundamental reason for the periodontal therapy is to keep up and reestablish the support of the teeth. While orthodontic treatment depends on the rule, which expresses that if prolonged pressure is applied to a tooth, tooth gets displaced from its original position as the bone around the tooth redesigns. Since the bone reaction is intervened by the periodontal ligament, tooth movement is essentially a periodontal ligament phenomenon.Common periodontal conditions which require orthodontic therapy and awareness of the pathologic changes or other undesirable changes which can happen in the periodontium because of improper orthodontic systems would help in better treatment method for administration to the patients. Orthodontic patients are highly susceptible to increased accumulation of plaque which makes integration of a periodontist very essential.This review mainly focuses on the effect of orthodontic therapy on periodontal health.
