Studies have identified a correlation or association between periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Alzheimer’s disease, psoriasis, colon cancer, and kidney disease. For malpositioned or crooked teeth, the periodontal considerations are magnified. The boney and soft tissue architecture created by malpositioned teeth contributes to the creation of a unique bacterial flora that can ultimately lead to tooth loss and possibly to some of the aforementioned systemic diseases. This unique bacterial flora around crowded or malpositioned teeth and the ease with which these teeth can now be moved to their correct position by uprighting their roots even within a matter of 60 to 90 days with the patented methods of FASTBRACES®Technologies, makes obvious the need for the first-ever division of the term gingivitis into two categories: one for straight teeth and one for malpositioned teeth. One could continue to use of the term Gingivitis to describe the inflammation of the soft tissue/gingiva around straight teeth only and change it to the term Orthodontitis™ to describe the same around malpositioned teeth. The uprighting of malpositioned roots with FASTBRACES® Technologies could be just as important as dental cleaning as the first or front line periodontal treatment strategy. This means that the primary dental instrument for gingivitis is the scaler that cleans the teeth, whereas the primary dental instrument for Orthodontits™ could now be the bracket and wire of FASTBRACES® Technologies which facilitates the immediate root movement of the crooked teeth from the onset of treatment to their straight position. These teeth can then be cleaned thoroughly and efficiently. The orthodontic treatment to perfect the bite may then be completed in another few months.
