Retraction of the upper arch with skeletal anchorage and control of the occlusal plane rotation: Two case reports

Marcel Marchiori Farret

Introduction: The use of skeletal anchorage for retraction of the upper arch is becoming common in orthodontic treatments. This treatment option reduces the side effects of conventional mechanics, reduces the need for patient cooperation and allows the correction of some problems without extraction of upper teeth in the aesthetic area as the first premolars. However, many aspects must be addressed in biomechanics to avoid undesirable effects and unsatisfactory results. Method: In this context, in this study the main aspects related to the force system during the upper teeth retraction with skeletal anchorage devices are discussed, and two cases are presented, in which the rotation of the upper occlusal plane and torque of the upper anterior teeth were controlled in different ways, to obtain a good result at the end of treatment. Result: Good occlusion, with adequate esthetic and functional results were obtained in both cases.
