Versatile retraction mechanics: Implant assisted en-masse retraction with a boot loop.

Philip P, Jose NP - Contemp Clin Dent (2015)

Bottom Line: The purpose of this paper is to explain the versatility offered by the use of arch wires with boot loops in retraction mechanics while taking direct anchorage from mini-screws.The materials include the mini screws placed at the appropriate location and retraction arches made of 0.019 X 0.025 SS with boot loops placed distal to the lateral incisors.The arch wires with boot loops have a definite advantage over the soldered/crimpable hooks because of the versatility it offers during the process of retraction.

ABSTRACT

Unlabelled: The purpose of this paper is to explain the versatility offered by the use of arch wires with boot loops in retraction mechanics while taking direct anchorage from mini-screws.

Materials and methods: The materials include the mini screws placed at the appropriate location and retraction arches made of 0.019 X 0.025 SS with boot loops placed distal to the lateral incisors. Mini screw provides a stable anchorage for enmasse retraction of the anterior teeth with the help of a boot loop using sliding and/or loop mechanics.

Results: The arch wires with boot loops have a definite advantage over the soldered/crimpable hooks because of the versatility it offers during the process of retraction.

Conclusion: An innovative approach combining the advantages of absolute anchorage using mini implants and a retraction arch with boot loop is presented here.

Mentions: Versatile retraction mechanics combines the advantages of a boot loop and mini implant assisted retraction while using sliding mechanics. The multiple options available while combining a mini implant and an arch wire with boot loop, allows the clinicians to do en-masse retraction once a working arch wire of 0.019 × 0.025 SS is inserted (without any further arch wire change during the phase of retraction) [Figures 1–3]. The amount of beta bend given was based on the extent of proclination of the incisors. The treated case does not show any significant amount of torque loss warranting root corrections during the final stages of the treatment [Figure 4 and Table 1]. It was seen that the versatile retraction mechanics is a viable and efficient alternative to conventional sliding mechanics using crimpable hooks.
