Periodontal disease increases periodontal pockets, tooth mobility and attachment loss, resulting in the destruction of periodontal tissue. In the clinical environment, it was frequently evident that periodontal disease caused tooth movement and displacement, as well as inducing occlusion trauma, breathing through the mouth, negative oral habits and systemic disease. For some time it had been thought that periodontal disease caused Pathologic Tooth Migration (PTM); however, it had proven difficult to clarify the exact nature of the relationship between periodontal disease and PTM. The mechanisms by which periodontal disease affected PTM were largely unknown and so the studies have focused on attempting to identify the relationship between periodontal disease and PTM in animals.
