Experimental animal studies have shown that orthodontic movement of teeth into infrabony pockets may be detrimental to the periodontal attachment. After elimination of subgingival plaque infection in the experimental animals, no additional loss of connective tissue attachment occurred. An experimental model has shown that a tooth with normal periodontal support can be orthodontically moved into an area of reduced bone height with maintenance of height of connective tissue attachment level and alveolar bone support. The results from these experimental studies have been tested clinically.
