Evaluation of hard and soft tissue changes after en- masse retraction using orthodontic mini-implants: An in-vivo study

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Vidushi Koul, Dr. Rohit Saini and Dr. Parishrut Nadda
ABSTRACT:
Introduction: The procedures used for closing the extraction space results in the correction of proclination of incisors, reduction in overjet and elimination of extraction sites. This space closure has been achieved using different mechanics but most recently orthodontic mini-implants (TAD’s) have been used efficiently.
Aim: To evaluate the skeletal, dental, soft tissue changes and amount of anchor loss in the treatment outcomes using orthodontic mini-implants.
Materials and Methods: 25 subjects with Class I bimaxillary protrusion were selected from the patients visiting the department of orthodontics for seeking orthodontic treatment. In all the patients, after extraction of the 1st premolars, retraction was carried out by using mini implants in the maxillary arch. Results: Significant retraction was achieved in all the cases with minimum anchorage loss and significant improvement in patient’s profile.
Conclusion: Orthodontic mini-implants have revolutionized the orthodontic world and have been an effective way of achieving desired tooth movement in an effective way.
