This review presents the basic knowledge and understanding of the biological processes involved in the orthodontic force and tooth movement. It also explains one of the basic inflammatory markers that was the “interleukin-1β” (IL-1β). Because orthodontic mechanic has to be carefully used during treatment, traumatic effects on the periodontium and teeth may occur. Proper understanding of biological events will help design orthodontic force that will produce minimal tissue damage. In addition, inflammatory markers such as IL-1β play a critical role in bone remodeling and tooth movement. This may be of benefit in understanding how it works and the relevance of the concepts to clinical practice.
