Introduction: Orthodontic-surgical treatment can present risks to the dental organ and the periodontium. Despite the low incidence of such cases, these complications can compromise a treatment plan. Practitioners should be aware of these potential complications, take them into account during treatment in order to reduce their negative impact and, if necessary, manage them by orthodontic-surgical collaboration. Materials and Methods: In this article, the authors present several potential complications that can occur during treatment. Conclusion: The information given to the patient about the risks inherent in the implementation of an orthodontic-surgical protocol must necessarily include the risks of lesion to the dental organ and the periodontium.
