Abstract

SNA and ANB angles and convexity decreased significantly during treatment (T0-T1; P<.05 and P<.01, respectively), and the net changes (T0-T2) in ANB angle and convexity were also found to be statistically significant (P<.01). During treatment, significant distal movement was found in the upper first molar, and the second premolar and molar were also distalized significantly (P<.001). At the end of 2 years, there was a significant mesial migration of the upper molars and the second premolar during the posttreatment period, but all of them were positioned more distally compared to the beginning of treatment (P<.001). The decrease in molar relation was statistically significant during the T0-T1 and T0-T2 periods (P<.001).
