The use of 0,5 mm stainless steel labial in correcting protusive upper anterior teeth

      Abstract :

      Some clinicians designed special light-forces labial bows to retract the protrusive upper incisors with large overjet. Simple labial bows with U loops were made from 0.5 mm stainless steel wire and were used to retract the protrusive upper incisors with large overjet in this study. Twenty one patients as sample were grouped into three; 10 patients with 4-6 mm overjet, 9 patients with 7-9 mm overjet and 2 patients with more than 9 mm overjet. The results after 6 months of treatment revealed in the 4-6 mm group 38 % patients achieved normal overjet, 9,5 % showed reduced overjet; in 7-9 mm group 24% patients showed normal overjet, 14,3% reduced overjet and showed no overjet changes 4,7%; in more than 9 mm overjet revealed 4,7 % for both reduced overjet and no overjet changes. For the whole sample 13 patients (62 %) achieved a normal overjet, 6 patients (28.5 %) have reduced overjet and 2 patients (9.5 %) showed no overjet changes. This specific labial bow should be used with care either by operator or patient due to its low stability ratio.
