Full Thickness Mucoperiosteal Flap Versus Low Level Laser in Orthodontic Tooth Movement Acceleration

2019-08-19 19:46:44 | BioPortfolio


This study aimed to evaluate the effect of using full thickness mucoperiosteal flap (FTMPF) elevation only versus low level laser therapy (LLLT) on acceleration of orthodontic tooth movement.


This study was a split mouth design study included 32 side according to sample size calculation. Those sides were divided into 2 groups. Group 1divided into (group 1a: 8 sides with FTMPF, group 1b:8 sides control). Group 2(group 2 a: 8 sides with LLLT, group 2b: 8 sides control). Extraction of the first maxillary premolars followed by canine retraction in the extraction space with maximum anchorage were indicated. FTMPF was elevated from the mesial interdental papilla of maxillary canine to the mesial interdental papilla of second maxillary premolar. LLLT was applied at 3,7,14,28.56 days of retraction. During retraction study model for all patients were taken at 2ed, 6th, 14th,16th weeks and at the end of retraction (I1,I2,I3,I4,I5 or overall interval). 3D laser scanning and digital superimposition was done to measure the rate of canine retraction and anchorage loss.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.

A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.

A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.

Endonucleases that remove 5' DNA sequences from a DNA structure called a DNA flap. The DNA flap structure occurs in double-stranded DNA containing a single-stranded break where the 5' portion of the downstream strand is too long and overlaps the 3' end of the upstream strand. Flap endonucleases cleave the downstream strand of the overlap flap structure precisely after the first base-paired nucleotide, creating a ligatable nick.

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
