Title : COMPARISON OF ANTERIOR TEETH ASYMMETRY AND MESIODISTAL ANGULATION AFTER ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT WITH STANDARD EDGEWISE AND STRAIGHTWIRE ROTH ON PANORAMIC RADIOGRAPH

Abstract :

A panoramic radiograph is still used to evaluate mesiodistal angulation and tooth asymmetry after orthodontic treatment. This study aims to compare the differences in asymmetry and mesiodistal angulation of anterior teeth after orthodontic treatment using standard Edgewise and Straightwire Roth Techniques. This study was an ex post facto cross-sectional study, using 60 samples (30 samples of standard Edgewise and 30 samples of Straightwire Roth) of panoramic radiographs after orthodontic treatment by measuring mesiodistal angulation in anterior teeth. Each panoramic radiograph was scanned with EPSON L360 scanner and the mesiodistal angulation was measured by using the CorelDRAW 2020. Mesiodistal angulation was analyzed by using Independent T-test. The result of the Independent T-test showed no significant difference in mesiodistal angulation on the right and the left side anterior teeth, both on the standard Edgewise and Straightwire Roth technique (p>0.05). The statistic of the Independent T-test showed no significant difference in mesiodistal angulation of the anterior teeth between standard Edgewise and Straightwire Roth techniques (p>0.5). In conclusion, mesiodistal angulations on the right and the left side of anterior teeth were symmetric after orthodontic treatment using standard Edgewise and Straightwire Roth techniques. There was no significant difference in asymmetry and mesiodistal angulation of anterior teeth between standard Edgewise and Straightwire Roth techniques.
