AbstractDuration of orthodontic treatment is a crucial parameter from patient as well as orthodontist point of view. Considering this aspect in mind accelerated orthodontic came into existence. The purpose of this split mouth study was to evaluate effectiveness of piezocision-based flapless corticotomy. 50 orthodontic patients requiring first premolar extraction were selected. Following teeth extraction radiographic guided micro incisions and localized piezocision corticotomy was performed on the side selected as study side. Time elapsed to close the space by both conventional technique and corticotomy was noted.A repeated measure ANOVA was used to compare the duration of canine retraction between both the sides. A significant difference in duration of space closure was seen.It was concluded that likewise conventional corticotomy technique flapless piezocision technique was also a successful method of orthodontic tooth movement; but this is less invasive and more comfortable to patients.
