Effective gingival retraction is essential to open a space surrounding the preparation margin and to have a clean and dry field to take the impression. Adequate retraction has to be accomplished in all subgingival areas to guarantee that the impression material or digital scan register beyond the margins of Preparation. This study was focused on evaluation and comparison of the amount of displacement of free gingiva with the use of a new retraction paste and retraction cord system

This study was designed to understand and evaluate the choice between friction and frictionless mechanics in extraction space closure. The orthodontics case sheets were evaluated to identify extraction cases. After examining 428 case sample tabulation of choice between friction and frictionless mechanics were examined. More female patients underwent orthodontic treatment. More cases were treated by friction mechanics rather than by frictionless mechanics. Only 55 cases of the whole were treated by loops for retraction and space closure. More orthodontists preferred retraction using friction mechanics which can be attributed to factors like being treated by faster mechanics, less cost and lesser demanding skill of clinician. The chair side time required is reduced
