Table 2 Comparison of mean deviation of mini-implants from ideal position between right and left side in CBCT group and RVG group with level of significance

From: Evaluation of orthodontic mini-implant placement: a CBCT study

Variable CBCT group RVG group
Right side (n= 10) Left side (n= 10) Significance (pvalue) Right side (n= 10) Left side (n= 10) Significance (pvalue)
Mean DMH (in mm) 0.091 0.106 0.939 0.768 0.362 0.226
Mean DMEP (in mm) 0.361 0.422 0.662 0.57 0.733 0.702
Mean DMT (in mm) 0.756 0.079 0.256 0.815 1.261 0.111
Mean DMA (in degrees) 4.6 0.2 0.873 2.8 5.6 0.563
  1. DMH, deviation of height of mini-implant; DMEP, deviation of point of entry of mini-implant; DMT, deviation of tip of mini-implant; DMA, angular deviation of mini-implant from the ideal path.
