External apical root resorption in patients treated by serial extractions followed by mechanotherapy.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION In the course of orthodontic treatment with serial extractions (SE), spontaneous unraveling of crowded incisors occurs. It was hypothesized that SE followed by mechanotherapy will cause less external apical root resorption (EARR) than orthodontic treatment with late extractions (LE).
