RIBEIRO, Gerson U. et al. The gengival invagination and the orthodontic space closure of extractions: a clinical conduct. Rev. Dent. Press Ortodon. Ortop. Facial [online]. 2004, vol.9, n.3, pp.77-82. ISSN 1980-5500.

The objetive of this study was to emphasize the orthodontists and periodontists relationship to enhance periodontal tissue during finishing and maintenance of orthodontic treatment results. The observation of the gingival tissue clefts during the extraction spaces closure phase can generate difficulties to finishing and stabilization of the adjacent teeth to the extraction sites. The relapse of the orthodontically moved teeth can probably be caused by the transeptal fibers. The correct root parallelism, a criterious fibertomy and immediate and adequate retention are indispensable procedures to achieve orthodontic treated cases stability. Better results are obtained with supracrestal fibertomy in severe rotated teeth and gingival hyperplasia in extraction sites preventing relapse in these region.

Keywords : Spaces closure; Gingival clefts; Transeptal fibers.
