Abstract

Heavy posterior orthopedic forces used for massive retropositioning of maxillary bone are among the orthopedic treatments preconised during mixed dentition. The clinical and cephalometric results of twelve cases treated by these means indicate that only dental movements can be obtained without the possibility of any orthopedic remodeling. These results corroborate those of other studies and it is possible to conclude that heavy orthopedic forces represent a very imprecise therapy which lead to side effects that are greater than the desired objectives.
