This article shows the inter-disciplinary orthodontic treatment of a complex clinical case with severe periodontal problems and many teeth losses. The treatment planning consisted of previous visualization of teeth movement using digital occlusogram and VTO. Intrusion of many teeth anchored on splints and on osseointegrated implants and asymmetrical teeth movements using low and continuous forces are shown. Using Segmented Arch Technique and correctly applying biomechanical principles allow the orthodontist to obtain optimal clinical results with control and predictability, minimizing the occurrence of side effects.
