Anatomic variability in alveolar sites for skeletal anchorage.


INTRODUCTION Because alveolar bone is used for skeletal anchorage, the variability and reliability of its dimensions are important. METHODS Interradicular distances, cortical thicknesses, and buccolingual spaces were measured on computed tomography images of 22 adults (13 maxillary and 9 mandibular). Intra-arch analyses were done with paired t tests; the… (More)
