The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of orthodontic movement on non-vital teeth, illustrated with a clinical case. A review of the literature shows it is controversial as to whether or not orthodontic forces can be initiated and sustained without the resorptive process occurring. Induced resorption during tooth movement depends on multiple factors, which require the close attention of the dentist to ensure an accurate diagnosis and correct mechanotherapy with respect to the periodontium. The orthodontic treatment described here was performed on a woman 36 years of age with endodontically treated teeth. This case demonstrated that the biomechanics follow biological principles and thus prevent deleterious effects on the components of the periodontium and the bone and maintains the integrity of the root length.
