Periodontal disease and/or loss of teeth brings pathologic tooth migration that can result in esthetic and occlusal problems. Diastema and general spacing of the teeth, particularly in the anterior segments of the dentition are frequently developed in individuals with advanced periodontal disease. Thus, the overall treatment plan for a patient with advanced periodontal disease often involves periodontal orthodontic combined therapy. Orthodontic treatment in adults with periodontal disease is restricted to tooth alignment with special caution. Indirect bonding can achieve accurate bracket placement. A 38 year old woman with adult periodontitis was treated by periodontal therapy. Subsequently, her diastema was orthodontically corrected by indirect bonding technique. It must be an appropriate case report of periodontal-orthodontic combined therapy.
