One of the main limitations of orthodontic treatment in partially edentulous patients is the lack of anchorage to obtain desirable tooth movement. Coordination between the orthodontist, periodontist, and restorative practitioner is essential when planning treatment for these patients. Implants can be used not only in the definitive prosthetic solution but can also be of great benefit as stable abutments during orthodontic therapy. For ideal results, it is essential to establish an orthodontically favorable position for an implant and, more importantly, the best position for an adequate restoration following orthodontic treatment. The aim of this article is to demonstrate the use of implants in orthodontic movement to provide easier and more predictable restorative treatment.
