BACKGROUND No randomized controlled trial has tried to compare treatment outcomes between the sliding en-masse retraction of upper anterior teeth supported by mini-implants and the two-step sliding retraction technique employing conventional anchorage devices. OBJECTIVE To evaluate skeletal, dental, and soft tissue changes following anterior teeth retraction. DESIGN AND SETTING Parallel-groups randomized controlled trial on patients with class II division 1 malocclusion treated at the… CONTINUE READING
