BACKGROUND/AIMS To compare the change in the angulation of developing mandibular third molar in both first premolar extraction and non-extraction cases and to determine whether premolar extraction results in a more mesial movement of the mandibular buccal segment and causes favorable rotational changes in the mandibular third molar tilt, which can enhance later eruption of the third molars. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pretreatment (T1) and post treatment (T2) panoramic radiographs were taken of 25… CONTINUE READING
