Table 3 Comparison of mean deviation of mini-implants from ideal position between maxillary and mandibular sites in the CBCT group and RVG group, respectively, with level of significance

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

Variable CBCT group RVG group
Maxillary site (n= 12) Mandibular site (n= 8) Significance (pvalue) Maxillary site (n= 12) Mandibular site (n= 8) Significance (pvalue)
Mean DMH (in mm) 0.0825 0.1225 0.256 0.65 0.436 0.354
Mean DMEP (in mm) 0.361 0.436 0.570 0.505 0.871 0.149
Mean DMT (in mm) 0.499 0.717 0.401 0.944 1.178 0.727
Mean DMA(in degrees) 4.416 5.125 0.683 4 9.5 0.099
  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.
