Abstract

Aim: to evaluate the association between labial movement of lower incisors and the level of gingival margin Material and methods: 30 subjects between the age group of 14-25 yrs with class 1 crowding and class-2 div 1 cases indicated for non extraction treatment with fixed functional appliance or class 2 mechanics. Pre and post treatment intra-oral casts, photographs and ceplalograms were used for the study.Pre and post treatment intra-oral casts, photographs were used to record the level of gingival margin from the CEJ. Pre and post treatmentcephalograms were used to determine the skeletal and dental relationship. Results: all the pre and post categories are statistically significant because the p value of all is less than 0.05.
