Table 4 Comparison of parameters between implant and space closure groups

From: Missing upper incisors: a retrospective study of orthodontic space closure versus implant

Recorded scores Tooth mobility (number of teeth) Probing depth (number of teeth) Infraocclusion (number of teeth) Plaque index (mean ± SD) TMD (mean ± SD)
Implant group 1 12 14 3.1 ± 1.2 1.3 ± 1.1
OSC group 0 3 0 2.9 ± 1.1 1.5 ± 1.03
P value NS 0.001* 0.001* 0.632 0.605
  1. *Level of significance set at P < 0.05. TMD, temporomandibular joint dysfunction; SD, standard deviation; OSC, orthodontic space closure.
