Abstract

Background: Corticotomy-assisted rapid orthodontics is a widely used method for speeding up conventional orthodontics. This study (i) evaluates the effects of corticotomy alone, corticotomy combined with bone graft, and corticotomy with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) on vestibular alveolar bone thickness in patients with class I malocclusion; (ii) compares the treatment time with a conventional orthodontic therapy group, and (iii) investigates the periodontal health of patients who have undergone corticotomy-assisted rapid orthodontics.
