The orthodontic movement does not induce pulp necrosis or calcium metamorphosis of the pulp, as revealed by clinical research in humans and laboratory animals. When pulp necrosis or calcium metamorphosis of the pulp is diagnosed during or shortly after orthodontic treatment, its etiology should be attributed to concussion-type dental trauma, and not to orthodontic treatment. The two pulp diseases that lead to coronary dimming in apparently healthy teeth are aseptic pulp necrosis and calcium metamorphosis of the pulp, both of which are induced exclusively by dental trauma.
