Abstract

Pregnant women present different changes in the skeletal system, such as the increase in calcium throughout this period, there are also small reductions in bone density. Orthodontic tooth movement is based on the principles of tissue resorption and formation at the level of the surrounding bone and periodontal ligament. It should be noted that there are multiple factors that affect the speed of this type of movement. During pregnancy and lactation, certain alterations in orthodontic dental movement may be perceived, caused by changes in bone homeostasis, alterations in tooth resorption and observed bone deposition. In this article we will cover topics such as the physiology and history of pregnancy, as well as the analysis of various articles related to orthodontic dental movement in pregnant women.Las mujeres embarazadas presentan diferentes cambios en el sistema esquelético, como el aumento de calcio a lo largo de este periodo, además existen pequeñas reducciones en la densidad ósea. El movimiento dentario ortodóntico se basa en los principios de reabsorción y formación de tejido a nivel del hueso circundante y del ligamento periodontal. Cabe destacar que son múltiples los factores que afectan la velocidad de este tipo de movimiento.                                                                                                                                      Durante el embarazo y la lactancia es posible que se perciban ciertas alteraciones en el movimiento dentario ortodóncico, causado por los cambios de homeostasis ósea, las alteraciones de resorción dentaria y la deposición ósea observada.                                                                                                                                                         En este artículo abarcaremos temas como la fisiología y la historia del embarazo, así como el análisis de diversos artículos relacionados al movimiento dentario ortodóncico en mujeres embarazadas
