Title : A comparative study of the effects corticision and micro-osteoperforations on upper anterior teeth En -masse retraction

Abstract :

The long period of orthodontic treatment is a challenge faced by orthodontists as well as being the main concern for most patients and a reason for their refusal to undergo treatment And the long period of orthodontic treatment, which lasts between 24 and 36 months, exposes patients to several disadvantages, including a high prevalence of caries, increased gingival recession, and root resorption. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of corticision and micro-osteoperforations on the rate of orthodontic movement and to compare them. The sample consisted of 42 patients of the second class with protruding upper jaws in need of extraction of the upper first premolars and retraction of the en mass of the upper anterior teeth, where the sample was divided into three groups, the first group constituted the control sample G1, the second group is the corticision group G2, and the third group is the group of micro-osteoperforations G3. The results showed that there was no statistically significant difference in the return period between the three groups, and showed that there was a statistically significant difference in the return speed when comparing between G1 and G2, and between G2 and G3, and there were no significant differences between G1 and G3.
