INTRODUCTION Various anchorage techniques have been designed for canine retraction. Intraoral techniques have not always been successful, and now implants are widely used for this purpose. A new type of titanium microimplant, with a small diameter and a button-like head, was shown to be an effective source of anchorage for distal movement of the canines. The purposes of this study were to measure and compare the rates of canine retraction with titanium microimplant anchorage and conventional… CONTINUE READING
