Irrelevant: Controversy exists in the literature between the role of orthodontic treatment and gingival recession. If during the orthodontic treatment you keep proper dental hygiene and follow orthodontist's instructions it won't influence gum recession. There is no evidence base for the role of orthodontic treatment and gingival recession. If concern, ask your orthodontist prior signing inform consent.
