Several reports have suggested that orthodontic force can have negative effects such as loss of attachment and further bone destruction when periodontal inflammation is present.

MR imaging findings reported in patients from South-East Asia and Japan include loss of attachment (LOA) of the dura to the lamina, asymmetric lower cervical spinal cord atrophy, spinal cord T2 hyperintensity, loss of cervical lordosis in the neutral position and forward displacement of the dura with flexion MR imaging.
Mariotti (1999) characterized gingival diseases with presence of 1) signs and symptoms that are confined to gingiva 2) presence of dental plaque to initiate and exacerbate severity of lesions 3) clinical signs of inflammation (enlarged gingival contours due to edema or fibrosis, colour transition to a red and bluish-red hue, elevated sulcular temperature, bleeding upon stimulation, increased gingival exudates 4) clinical signs and symptoms associated with stable attachment levels on a periodontium with no loss of attachment or on a stable but reduced periodontium 5) reversibility of disease by removing the etiology 6) possible role as a precursor to attachment loss, around teeth.
