Incisor Retraction

Indications:

Increased overjet and/or anterior crowding.

Normal or increased overbite.

 

Case Details:

Adult with a Class II div 1 malocclusion (including full unit Class II molar relationships).

Treated by extraction of U4s, fixed appliances and bilateral Infinitas anchorage (following alignment and levelling).

 

Key Points:

Buccal mini-implants (1.5mm diameter, 9mm length, short neck) inserted in U5-6 areas bilaterally.

Powerarms (on a 19x25 steel archwire) to assist bodily incisor retraction and limit intrusive effects on maxillary molars.
