AbstractMethod and Patients: A method is presented that allows unilateral space closure in patients with aplastic lower second premolars. Based on a straight-wire appliance, space closure was achieved with a combination of “push mechanics” using the second molar as an anchorage unit and Class II “pull mechanics”, thus avoiding the application of any distalizing force on the lower incisors. The results from 13 consecutively treated subjects (five boys, eight girls, mean age 12 years and 6 months… CONTINUE READING
