Comparative Evaluation of Root Resorption in Correction of Class II Malocclusion
INTRODUCTION: External apical root resorption is a common iatrogenic side effect of orthodontic treatment and has been reported particularly in anterior teeth. The etiology of resorption is multifactorial, complex and individual susceptibility to resorption depends on various factors.
MATERIALS AND METHOD: The degree of root resorption during orthodontic treatment was evaluated on the post-treatment RVGs of the maxillary and mandibular central and lateral incisors of 28 skeletal Class II patients with mandible retrusion treated with non-extraction treatment protocol using elastics and PowerScope.
RESULTS: There was no statistically significant difference in root resorption between the groups for the overall score and comparison of root resorption in individual teeth between two groups showed significantly more resorption in PowerScope group in mandibular lateral incisors.
CONCLUSION: Both elastic and PowerScope groups showed mostly mild to moderate root resorption which is clinically acceptable and lower lateral incisors showed statistically more root resorption in PowerScope group.
