The aim of the present study was to compare the effect of traditional orthodontics and Piezocision-assisted orthodontics on the periodontal status and rate of canine retraction. In a split-mouth study, 20 subjects undergoing orthodontic treatment were selected. Conventional orthodontics was performed on 20 canine sites (control side), and contralateral canines were subjected to Piezocision-assisted orthodontics (experimental side). The experimental side showed statistically significant increase in rate of canine retraction as well as an increase in alveolar bone level in mesial and buccal aspects.
