Efficacy of peizocision based flapless corticotomy in the orthodontic correction of class I and class II malocclusion- Rapid accelerated orthodontics
Alok Chourasia, Anurag Sahu

Background: Orthodontist as well as patients biggest challenge during orthodontic treatment is time.However for past few years researchers are making an effort to develop several surgical techniques to minimize the treatment time. Peizocision based flapless corticotomy in the orthodontic correction is minimally invasive in nature and is preferred these days. Aim: To assess Efficacy of peizocision based flapless corticotomy in the orthodontic correction of class I and class II malocclusion: Rapid accelerated orthodontics.
Method: A total 50 patients aged 18 to 25 in need of orthodontic treatment with a fixed orthodontic appliance were selected for the study. Patients were divided into two group study groupand control group. Peizocisioncorticotomies were performed on patients in order to accelerate alignment for patients in the experimental group, whereas those in the control group received traditional orthodontic treatment. Result: Anchorage loss and canine distalizationwerefound to be statistically significant (p<0.01). The amount of distalization showed decrease duration of canine distalization. The pre- and post distalization mobility scores were not found significantly different between the two groups. Conclusion: Efficacy of peizocision based flapless corticotomy in the orthodontic correction of class I and class II malocclusion is considered to be effective method of treatment.
Key words: Tooth movement, surgical procedures, minimally invasive, piezosurgery.
