The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of cortical anchorage, by comparing two groups of patients with Class II malocclusions that were treated successfully with Class II elastics. One group of 30 previously treated patients had a utility arch used to set up cortical anchorage in the lower arch before Class II elastic wear; the second group was treated with standard edgewise mechanics where anchorage preparation consisted of full appliances, a well-aligned… CONTINUE READING
